Digitalisation of the Sound and Image Archive of Cultural Industries

Directorate General for Copyright
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

A total of 7 million documents regarding the Record, Registration and Censorship Documents of approximately 220,000 Cinema and Music Works covering the years 1933-2019 and the contents of these documents, and about 80,000 Banderol Delivery Record for Cinema and Music Works covering the years 2006-2019 in the archives of Ministry of Culture and Tourism were scanned and transferred to the digital environment.

In the archives of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, which is a continuation of the project in question, studies have been initiated to digitally transfer the samples of the local productions that have been recorded and registered since 1986. Considering that the materials such as VHS, Betamax, Record, Cassette, etc. carrying archive copies of the works of cultural heritage cannot keep the data for a long time (average material life is 25-30 years) with the Digitization of Sound and Video Archive Project, in order to transfer the works in Ministry of Culture and Tourism archives to future generations, it is aimed to create a database of domestic productions, to make the contents accessible in the digital environment and to meet the demands of the work samples from the judicial bodies faster.

What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 

• Primarily, the preservation of cultural heritage works has been ensured and transferred to future generations.

• It is ensured that these contents are easily accessible in digital environment.

• The way has been paved to meet the demands for work samples from the judicial bodies faster.
