Sound and Vision Television Archive

This is the current television collection of The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision (NISV), one of the most important Dutch audiovisual archives, which collects, looks after, and provides access to over 70% of the Dutch audio-visual heritage. This version of the collection uses data from DAAN, the new media management system for NISV, which went into use in July 2018. The metadata model of DAAN is different to that of the previous media management system, so you will notice differences in the metadata compared to the old Television Collection. In principle, the same metadata is available, but the names of the fields and their structure have changed.

The import of this collection is not yet complete. It contains most of the items that were in the old Television Collection, and many new items from recent years. Not all items have had their media imported, the number of items with media will increase as the import progresses.
