I have been working on European standards for 30 years, including the widely used Broadcast Wave Format and the EBU guidance on core metadata (EBUCore). Since 1995 I have worked on European R&D projects, beginning with Euromedia which developed the first European audiovisual asset management system (still a market leader, now part of AVID). I started the series of Presto projects (Presto, PrestoSpace, PrestoPRIME, Presto4U, Presto Centre) on audiovisual digitisation and digital preservation.”
