FFV1 and Matroska reading list


This is a collection of web links for further reading on the combination of FFV1 (codec) and Matroska (container), as an emerging open and standards-based digital preservation solution for the digitisation of video and film materials. This combination is going through a standardisation process via the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) mandated by the Preforma project, and is already in use in many archives as the preservation solution for video-source digitisation. It is also under active development as a lossless preservation solution for film scans, via the RAWcooked initiative.
