Adam Matthew Digital Facilitates Project on Better AV Presentation

Adam Matthew Digital’s Quartex partnered with Bay Area TV Archive (BATA), part of San Francisco State University, on a 2-year pilot project to explore the effective display of audio and video (AV) content. Other partners will join the project in the coming months. BATA will migrate all of its collections—about 2,500 assets—over the 2 years, in addition to collaborating with Quartex’s development staff on enhanced AV capabilities for discoverability and usability.

Adam Matthew Digital states the following:

BATA content includes videos of Muhammad Ali, Robert Kennedy campaigning in San Francisco, the Black Panthers, Joan Baez, and more. Moving the Archive to Quartex will improve accessibility, as the platform allows auto-generation of transcription and closed captioning, which is of vital importance to both the academic community at San Francisco State and the larger public who are accessing the BATA Archive and engaging with the materials. Quartex can also offer multiple entry points into the archives and highlight relationships between content and collections, aiding discovery for anyone interested in this rich archival content.
