The National Digital Archives Program (NDAP), Taiwan has developed advanced technologies for managing digital video archives. The technologies enable us to build indexing systems for fast retrieval of digital video contents, and add values to the contents. This paper takes the Digital Museum of Taiwan’s Social and Humanities Video Archive project as a case study to demonstrate the role of information science technologies in developing digital video archive systems and digitizing video and audio resources. By sharing our experience and the technologies developed in our research, we hope to provide digital content providers and researchers with guidelines for the design and development of digital video archive systems and value-added video/audio data.
