Belgium's SONUMA, a subsidiary of RTBF (Radio Television Belge Francophone) and the publicly funded company responsible for the digitization and commercialization of RTBF audiovisual archives, is implementing the Netia content management system (CMS) to manage 120,000 hours of content on all variety of media, including VCR tape, DAT tape, LP, MD and 16mm film. SONUMA developed its own process of metadata consolidation from various metadata sources and formats, along with metadata collected through segmentation. Within this workflow, a third-party software performs automatic speech-to-text transcription. Both metadata and media are ingested into the Netia system, which in turn allows archivists to perform fast searches of stored content.
