By Peter Stockinger

This present day, audiovisual data and libraries became very hot particularly within the box of amassing, maintaining and transmitting cultural historical past. although, the information from those records or libraries – video clips, photos, sound tracks, and so forth. – represent as such in basic terms capability cognitive assets for a given public (or “target community”). they need to suffer kind of major qualitative modifications so that it will turn into person- or community-relevant highbrow goods.
These qualitative differences are played via a sequence of concrete operations reminiscent of: audiovisual textual content segmentation, content material description and indexing, pragmatic profiling, translation, and so forth. those and different operations represent what we name the semiotic flip in facing electronic (audiovisual) texts, corpora of texts or maybe complete (audiovisual) records and libraries. They exhibit virtually and theoretically the well known “from info to meta-data” or “from (simple) info to (relevant) knowledge” challenge – an issue that evidently at once affects the potent use, the social impression and relevancy and hence additionally the way forward for electronic wisdom archives.
It constitutes, certainly, the center of a range of significant R&D courses and initiatives around the globe.

The case of publication/republication by genre as well as by specialized “accesses”. 4), an audiovisual text is distributed either as documenting an event (case of the standard publishing model), or as part of a folder dedicated to a specific topic, as part of an educational folder for such-andsuch a course, or even in a form more-or-less closely adapted to a specific audience and their expectations and skills (either linguistic or cultural).

1. e. 2002– 2005), there gradually appeared a whole series of interrogations and issues which, indeed, constitute the background and the main motivation of a new wave of R&D activities since late 2006. Three of these are: 1. the quality and richness of the content of the collections forming part of the ARA are somewhat overshadowed by the quantity (volume) of hours offered to the interested community (at the end of 2006, the ARA’s collections comprised around 3,500 hours of digital videos; at the end of 2009, around 5,800 hours); 2.

In [STO 12] there are more detailed explanations relating to the ASW metalanguage of description (including 21 The elaboration of these models and scenarios is a subtle and complex process which, as has already been said, makes use of highly specialized skills in conceptual analysis of areas of knowledge or expertise to be covered by a program of digitization and diffusion of heritage as well as in audiovisual semiotics as being one of the very rare approaches which systematically deals with audiovisual texts, their structure and organization.
