​Bulgarian National Radio Digitizes Archive with NOA

To preserve its audio collection, Bŭlgarsko natsionalno radio (Bulgarian National Radio) is digitizing its entire legacy archive with a full line of archiving and ingest equipment from NOA.

Specifically, the broadcaster’s data-migration process involves the digitization and transfer of its existing legacy repository — approximately 320,000 legacy audio carriers and 100,000 CDs — to the NOA mediARC archive asset management framework. In addition, BNR will be utilizing the NOA Record ingest system, the N7000c audio ingest frontend, NOA CD Lector, and the mediARCWEB visual content browser application.

BNR’s IT Director Andrey Petrenko explains that the main objective of the project is to guarantee the conservation of irreplaceable content, as well as to allow for easy future access of this newly digitized legacy material, all through the application of Open Archival Information System (OAIS) principles.

“As a comprehensive Archive Asset Management (AAM) solution, NOA´s mediARC system implements a variety of OAIS principles to secure long-term archiving within dedicated business processes,” said Petrenko. “Our decision to upgrade BNR’s existing system with NOA ingest and AAM technology will allow us to achieve seamless business continuity for our long-term archiving tasks.”

Other, recent NOA installations are in Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and UAE.
