There are two methods for adding media to a Keeping Culture archive – Public Folder and Simple Upload. Each have their advantages and disadvantages.
The Simple Upload screen provides a streamlined method for ingesting media into a Keeping Culture Archive without the need to upload files via FTP or access the administration pages. Access to the Simple Upload screen is governed by the user, groups and permissions systems on both mobile and desktop interfaces.
Encoding and compressing movie files can be time consuming. It is unrealistic to expect users to wait for their files to encode during the upload process. As such, a workflow and Transcoder component has been devised to allow movies to be ingested into the archive and processed with minimal fuss and delay.
Attributes of Archive Item or Archive View classes can have a default value assigned to them. For most attributes this is unlikely to be needed. However, attributes like Conditions of Use, Copyright and Intellectual Property usually contain a generic statement that rarely changes.

Transmit is a Mac file transfer tool which supports a number of protocols, including S3 and FTP. While there are other file transfer tools that support S3 for the Mac, like Cyberduck, in our opinion Transmit is the simplest and easiest to use. Transmit can be trialled for 7 days before requiring registration.
All customer content is backed up on Amazon S3 storage. If you are a customer on the Community or Multi-Community plans, then you are able to access and download your archive content using a S3 file transfer client, like Transmit on Mac and S3 Browser on Windows. Alternatively you could use Amazon’s own AWS CLIRead more
