On this day of World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, our customer SRG SSR (a leading Swiss public broadcasting association) is unveiling a one-of-a-kind platform to access this massive repository of heritage and memory through APIs. Safeguarding key Audiovisual documents that represent key moments and priceless heritage of people, their lives, culture and much more. Over the years, these Audiovisual archives have not been easily accessible to public, and this changes now!
SRG SSR is progressively opening up its radio and television archives to the general public. In doing so, SRG SSR is acting on its business strategy, which commits it to maintaining the nation’s collective audio and audio-visual heritage. This is all possible thanks to the digitalisation of their archived content, a process that is already well-advanced.
SRG SSR Archives contain over two million hours of radio and television programmes, going all the way back to the early 1930s. Thanks to digitalisation of their archived content this portal is going to be game changing. This idea is visionary and has been one of our milestone achievements that adds monumental value to conserving heritage for future generations. This was possible thanks to tech vision of our teams and our API partners DigitalAPICraft
for bringing it to reality.
“We are proud to have partnered with SRG SSR team on such a meaningful project. It is projects and clients like these that always strike a chord! Special thanks to Roberto Salomone and team.” said Bharath Kumar, Founder & CEO, DigitalAPICraft Pvt. Ltd. “Our outstanding team of tech experts and our vast experience in the API space help make this project a reality.” he added.
