the innovation leader in digital broadcastvideo serverand live
Internet streaming technology for hyperlocal and community media,

media archive and retrieval system for archiving the complete Fresh

PBCore, the Public Broadcasting Metadata Dictionary Project, offers a
standard way of describing and using broadcast content for retrieval
and sharing. TelVue?s PBCore storage and archiving solution deployed
at WHYY supports digital audio archiving and storage for WHYY?s Fresh
Air, making content more accessible for reuse, collaboration, Internet
distribution, or as niche content for specific community, service, and
institutional needs.

“Fresh Airis one of public radio’s most popular and successful
programs, and it was critical for WHYY to be able to digitally archive
and then efficiently search, retrieve and share the full value of each
program in the 30+ years of well-produced interviews ? a continuing
history of the American culture and experience,? said Bill Weber, WHYY
Public Media VP & Chief Technology Officer. ?The customized TelVue
PBCore storage and archiving solution gives us the flexibility,
control and content management we need to ensure full utilization of
this resource in new ways. As we continue to standardize on PBCore,
we look forward to transitioning additional multimedia asset
libraries, including video, to PBCore standardized management.?

?TelVue has extensive experience delivering leading-edge digital
broadcast and video server systems for public stations like WHYY, and
is one of the first companies to develop commercially available PBCore
solutions? said Jesse Lerman, CEO of TelVue Corporation. ?Our PBCore
storage and archiving system supports audio and video content, and
simplifies the search and retrieval of digital media assets around
PBCore’s highly flexible metadata system. We look forward to working
with WHYY and other public and community media stations to power
PBCore archiving and retrieval of station generated media content.?
