Today, most broadcasters devote resources to web-based forms of television, both in terms of new programming and older programme materials. Broadcast archives are becoming increasingly important as ‘old’ television content has the potential to attract online users. As a result, the major question for audiovisual archives, scholars and media professionals is: what does the current shift to online forms actually imply for television heritage?
‘Television Heritage and the Web’ will discuss and analyse the opportunities and challenges of the current media changes. The conference includes a range of international experts and a workshop titled EUscreen best practice applications showcase, which explores the exploitation of broadcast material in the fields of learning, research, leisure/cultural heritage and creative reuse.
