The challenge of video archiving

Never underestimate the value of media content. Trends come and go within all areas and industries. The media from two weeks or several years ago could suddenly become relevant once again. By archiving those digital assets using video archiving software, you can have them ready to go at a moments notice, earning you two advantages:

  1. Being one step ahead of the curve by having ready-to-go media relevant to the specific situation.
  2. Saving money by utilizing and reusing existing media content.

In this article, we’ll talk about what video archiving is, the importance of future-proofing your media content through video archiving and how utilizing video archiving solutions can lead to long-term monetization. 

What is video archiving?

Video archiving refers to the process of managing and preserving video files. This could include last year’s or this year’s video ad campaign, or footage from a past event that has a historical value and could be re-used at a later date. Video archiving solutions are often a requirement for larger corporations to be able to store, track, manage, and re-use their video content. 

Why you need video archiving software

In today’s environment, it’s easier than ever before to capture video. Companies create, collect, and process so much video that managing it is becoming an increasingly bigger issue. It’s not a matter of insufficient storage. It’s a matter of keeping track of it, navigating through a video archive system with hundreds, maybe thousands of videos. 

Let’s use a newspaper company as an example. Most modern newspapers use both video and audio in their daily work. Being able to find content related to an event and a person or a subject on short notice is an example of new technical requirements of a business landscape where more and faster-published media has become a key competitive factor.

You simply need video archiving software as a way to keep track of all your videos and make them searchable where you can find what you need when you need it at a moment's notice. You could potentially possess a figurative gold mine of media assets that you’re just not aware of, or that can’t be utilized to their full potential due to your current setup.

How the Vidispine video archiving solution supports your business

Media archives tend to change and grow rapidly over time, becoming increasingly harder to handle. Successfully archiving media files requires a consistent plan for logging, tagging, and categorizing the video content to be able to navigate through it, and perform searches within it. The taxonomy of video archiving needs to be accurate, detailed enough to prove useful, as well as deployed consistently across the video archive storage solution to prove fruitful. All of that tagging needs to be affordably produced.

The Vidispine video archive management solution streamlines and automates the process of tagging and establishes an easy-to-navigate taxonomy for all your video content. The VidiCore, together with VidiCoder, the Vidispine transcoder, allows for advanced media and metadata transformation and automation in your media supply chain and media archive. 

AI-driven services for analyzing speech to text and image objects will also enhance the structure and your knowledge of your media archive, allowing you access to detailed metadata information based on time periods of media.
