Launching the Virtual Research Environment (webinar)10 December 2020 Leave your thoughts
11:00 - 12:00
The first version of the Virtual Research Environment (VRE) is ready for use. On Thursday December 10 you will hear more about the VRE during this webinar and you will get to see the first release.
Developed by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network and the Open Preservation Foundation, the VRE is a “plug & play” virtual machine with a selection of open source digital preservation tools pre-installed. The VRE aims to lower barriers to using and testing digital preservation software. It enables users to try out tools typically used in the pre-ingest and ingest stages of a digital preservation workflow, without having to install or configure the software. The VRE currently contains six tools: Apache Tika, Droid, JHOVE, VeraPDF, MediaInfo and ffmpeg/Handbrake.
The first version of the VRE will be presented during this webinar. Project leader Ania Molenda and cooperation partners from the Open Preservation Foundation Martin Speller and Carl Wilson will tell you how the VRE came about and show you how it works. There is also time to ask questions during the webinar. You can read more about the VRE here.
