Digital archives



Matic has strong competencies in development of digital archives, both for enterprises and for public administration institutions. The archives we build can be used to store digitised materials in any format, from documents – e.g. by public archives, court document repositories or commercial accounting or operating documentation – to audio and video files and MAM/DAM solutions.

 

Matic offers true end-to-end solutions. We start by analysing the requirements, go on to choosing the optimal hardware platform, digitising equipment (e.g. image scanners) and tape libraries or disk arrays, and finalise the preparations by selecting the dedicated software. Our services include:

  • Advice on the methods of digital archive development
  • Selection of hardware and choice of methods of digitisation
  • Delivery of the hardware architecture – including storage libraries and the concept of their expansion as the archive grows
  • Creating a concept of information sharing and its describing it flexibly with metadata, depending on the type of collection involved and the required parameters of its description (including semi-automated methods)
  • Web portals designed to share the information over the Internet to specific users or to the general public
  • Access reporting and auditing mechanisms to monitor accessing the digital collection by authorised users

 

 

Value for Customer:

 

Implementing a digital archive can give you numerous benefits:

  • Making the information resistant to the ongoing process of deterioration of its media – paper, film strip or magnetic media – and keeps the archive complete as cultural heritage for future generations
  • Protection of the collected information, ensuring its integrity and completeness, particularly by protecting against force majeure events: fires, floods or intentional destruction by unauthorised individuals, e.g. theft.
  • Convenient and quick access to the information stored in digitised archives thanks to remote sharing features, without a need to physically visit the archive. The descriptive metadata and search methods modelled on popular search engines ("like Google") the user is able to find the desired piece of the archive in just a fraction of the time it would take in the past. Such features are particularly useful to historians and other researchers who use archived information in their work.
