WHYY Showcases Fresh Air Archives Powered by TelVue Technology

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ--(Marketwired - October 14, 2015) - This Friday Oct 16, WHYY is hosting a Philly Archives Month event to feature the vast audio archive of NPR's Fresh Air, built on a platform developed by the broadcast technology company TelVue® Corporation (OTC PINK: TEVE).

The Friday event features a behind-the-scenes tour, a talk with show producers, and a sampling of the best of three decades of interviews with some of the world's most distinguished cultural icons.

"WHYY is pleased to participate in Philly's celebration of the importance of archives as keepers of our culture," said Terry Gross, award-winning host of the acclaimed arts and news program. "I'm happy that the public will have greater access to some of the memorable interviews we have conducted over the years." Philadelphia libraries, universities, media and government archives are marking Archives Month with a long list of public tours, workshops, screenings, exhibits, and lectures.

TelVue is upgrading the archive platform and application built for WHYY a few years ago based on PBCore, the Public Broadcasting Metadata standard developed by the public broadcasting community. TelVue, WHYY, the Fresh Air team, and metadata and library science specialists from Drexel University are currently working on enhancements to streamline metadata entry, and to make the audio and metadata more widely available for research and scholarship. The enhancements make it more efficient to keep the enormous collection catalogued for easier access.

"It's a great public service to archive the thoughts of so many prominent people over the past 30 years," said TelVue President and CEO Jesse Lerman. "TelVue's track record in broadcast and cloud video technology gives us a deep understanding of digital media archiving and workflows. We're excited to be working with WHYY to make sure the Fresh Air interviews are accessible to the public and to future generations."

Fresh Air, produced by WHYY in Philadelphia and distributed by NPR, reaches nearly 5 million radio listeners each week along with 3 million podcast downloads.
