Talking Movies – Film and sound archiving at the AMIA Annual Conference

This week we are catching up with our friends from the Association of Moving Image Archivists at the AMIA Annual Conference in Austin, Texas. Jeff Ollenburger and Kerry Sue Underwood will be in booth #14 November 16 through 18.

We will be joined by our partners at 2G Digital Post. You won’t want to miss the demonstrations of 2G’s patented 6D Virtual Library system.

The conference schedule is packed with great sessions on moving image preservation and archiving. These are right up our alley. We’ve grown to secure more film and sound elements than any company in the Western Hemisphere. It’s a wrap…send it to the Salt Mine, has become a familiar phrase in the film and television industry.

Film and sound archiving is a very specialized field. There are many factors to consider when developing an archiving plan, including:

  • Overall cost of storage
  • Ease of retrieval or alternative access
  • Disaster protection
  • Theft protection
  • Environmental barriers to preservation
