Proposed workflow for CoEDL

The diagram below represents our proposed workflow model for file transfer. Ideally, you would upload your media (archive-ready audio and video files needing transcoding) as soon as you return from the field and have gotten your data a bit more organised. All of your working transcriptions, lexicons, and other files derived from this original material can be added to your collection at a later time. The transcoding process will transform your large video files to an archival format AND we will return to you compressed, smaller files to be used with ELAN, PowerPoint, etc.
