Audiovisual heritage

The institute’s building at Hilversum’s Media Park, a short train ride from Amsterdam, stores a collection of millions of hours of radio, television, film, pictures and music recordings; the collection grows daily and the institute is committed to providing information on the collection and to making it widely accessible for diverse audiences, including media professionals, the creative sector, educational institutions and the general public. Through research and innovation, the institute has developed into a broad cultural institution that, with its accumulated knowledge and infrastructure, occupies a central position within the archive and media world.
