Digitizing CyBC archives

Cyprus Mail reports some good news:

STATE broadcaster CyBC has been given some €1.2 million towards digitising its archives, as part of an EU programme for Greece and Cyprus.

Earlier this week it signed an agreement on a project called Digital Herodotus.

The project is worth €1.7 million in total, of which CyBC has been allocated €1,184,000 and organisations in the Greek island of Mytilene, including a public library and a university, have been allocated the rest, CyBC said in an announcement.

CyBC has been given funds to set up a system to store and manage digital data and to obtain the technology needed to convert analogue video content from 1990 onwards to digital format.
