NETIA Sponsors Archives du Mondes Work to Digitize and Preserve Audio Collection of Togos Radio Kara

Date: 20/03/2014
NETIA today announced that it is sponsoring work by Archives du Monde to digitize the archives of Togo's Radio Kara and to train the broadcaster's technicians in managing and maintaining this archive independently. Archives du Monde is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping radio broadcasters worldwide digitize and preserve their audio archives, and NETIA's support and the company's Radio-Assist(TM) digital audio automation software play a key role in this work.
 
Founded in 1976, Radio Kara is the second public radio broadcaster operating in the northern part of Togo. The facility has thousands of hours of audio stored on magnetic tape, and the gradual deterioration of this archive, mainly due to climatic conditions, requires urgent intervention. These archives represent a unique historical and cultural heritage, including programs on Togolese culture (music, stories, poems), politics, economy, and society.
 
"Radio Kara's tape archive is a national treasure that excites the imagination with glimpses into the country's rich past," said Elisabeth Cl©mentin, project manager at Archives du Monde. "A significant part of Togo's audio heritage is stored in this collection, and the creation of a digital archive will benefit all who appreciate African history and culture."
 
The goal of Archives du Monde is to protect radio archives by facilitating implementation of a lasting and reliable digital audio archive solution that not only helps to preserve the region's cultural assets, but also provides a valuable tool in everyday broadcast operations going forward. In addition to planning and executing the Radio-Assist installation, Archives du Monde will provide Radio Kara's technical staff with the training needed to become self-sufficient. Ultimately, this project will enable Radio Kara to build a growing archive and make it available to the public via a digital catalog, populated with audio clips that highlight Togo's history and cultural heritage.
 
"NETIA has been involved in the digitization of archives for broadcasters all around the globe, and we are intensely aware of the large volume of valuable audio assets urgently in need of digitization," said Isabelle Sost Michoux, communication and field marketing director at NETIA. "We're proud to be supporting Archives du Monde and the organization's work to preserve unique audio content that brings Africa's culture and history to life."
 
NETIA and Archives du Monde are long-time partners. In the past, with NETIA's support, the charity digitized the tape-based audio library of Radio Lome in Togo. The project was a success, with more than 2,500 hours of audio content digitized.
