Long-term Preservation Strategy

Long-term Preservation Strategy for the original

Migrate to an open, standardized and well supported multimedia file format that is to be a good successor for the QuickTime file format. No normalized version will be created for QuickTime movie files. However, each video/audio stream contained in a QuickTime file will be normalized according to the normalization section in the ingest processing. If the encoded video/audio stream is not in the list of supported video/audio stream formats for QuickTime movie file, the video/audio stream will not be normalized and it will be preserved as bit-level.


Long-term Preservation Strategy for the normalized

Not applicable for QuckTime file format. For the normalized video and audio stream formats, please see the Action Plan for FDA Supported Video/Audio Stream Formats.
