The Atom open-source archive platform offers a reliable digital collection standard used by dozens of collection management institutions around the world. Coupled with the Archivematica digital content management application, it will comprise the core of the new video art collection. Within the Videoarchiv research project, we are using the platform for the development of additional tools designed to link collection catalogues and optimize workflow for future digital acquisitions.

Scheduled to open for the public in late 2021, the resulting expert database of the Czech moving image will include dozens of video art works from the past fifty years.
