Does an RDF/XML version of VRA Core exist? I'd love to use it in Omeka-S.

Archival quality vs. when to settle? #digitizing_video #digipres (part2)
When I'm done with my practice material. I was thinking that I would back it up on dual copies of DL bluray-r, but that would be about 76 discs. I've thought about two sets of mirrored zfs pools, but I can't leave that many drives attached to my home system. So I'm wondering what would be the best way going forward? Should I keep these, or go with .H264, .H265, something else? Please advise.
Archival quality vs. when to settle? #digitizing_video #digipres (part1)
So I've been practicing capturing video using ffmpeg. I'm hoping to offer a vhs digitization service at my library as part of our digital archive. Have been practicing at home with my $12 capture card and the TBC (thanks @ashley ). Have been successfully capturing video in ffv1 with md5 frame hases. Now I'm starting to wonder, WTF do I do with all of these 1's and 0's??? I'm estimating I'll have 1.5 TB of video.
