Cambridge Imaging Systems to Help Build British Library Moving Image Archive

From the Announcement:

A highly prestigious contract to supply the British Library with an advanced digital archive management system, known as Box of Broadcasts or simply ‘BoB', has been secured by Cambridge Imaging Systems.

The British Library contains over 150 million items including a moving image collection of around 40,000 titles. As part of the Library's extensive plans to improve digital access, the Library has brought in Cambridge Imaging Systems to provide the digital video management technology required to host selected digital video files from the archives and to record, store, describe, locate and deliver access within the Library to television and radio news programmes.

Cambridge Imaging Systems' Box of Broadcasts package is an advanced off-air recording system which has been developed over a number of years, principally for use by the BBC, BUFVC (British Universities Film and Video Council) and the Ministry of Defence.
