The Vanderbilt Television News Archive (VTNA) is innovating and iterating several of its core workflows by adopting cloud computing and storage for more reliable and streamlined digital media management. Using Amazon Web Services, Trint, and OrangeLogic, the VTNA has switched from several analog or manual tasks to partial or complete automation. This panel consists of practitioners who have learned these new tools and completely transformed their previous workflows. The panel will discuss how server-less functions, automated speech recognition, machine learning, and modern DAMS have made their work easier, but also present new challenges.
