"Don’t’ let perfect be the enemy of the good.” Balancing of increased output and quality preservation. Building on our increased capacity due to an infrastructure upgrade, and planning to maximise functions to meet our digitisation needs, we look forward to a balance of what we know and where we need to go. The NFSA plans to digitise 200,000 items over the next 7 years to meet deadline 2025 utilising technology to manage quality control, digitisation and restoration whilst dealing with a large volume of audio and video ingest. We will do this by increasing access capabilities of an automated programming interface for our batch processing restoration server and looking at pathways for external digitisation and up-scaling current internal preservation workflows we plan to meet our increased digitisation needs.
