Evaluating a Preservation Standard: A FADGI FFV1/MKV Working Group Report

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

In September 2019, Federal Agencies Digital Guidelines Initiative (FADGI) community formed a subgroup to investigate and document the feasibility of adopting FFv1 and Matroska (MKV) as a preservation format option for digitized video in federal agencies. This project was prompted by the increasing adoption of FFv1/MKV as a preservation format in recent years by cultural heritage institutions. Large scale adopters included the New York Public Library (NYPL), Indiana University Bloomington, the Walter J. Brown Media Archive at the University of Georgia, and many more. This report will discuss the activities of the subgroup, including the evaluation process and the outcome of testing, areas where further development are warranted, and the current status of the project. FADGI is committed to transparency and welcomes all comments.
