The Reel Thing XXXV - technical symposium: Aug 20 -22 - call for papers | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"...the 35th edition of the ongoing technical symposium, The Reel Thing, to take place in Los Angelesover the course of three days, August 20 – 22, 2015 including an opening night reception and screening on August 20. The event will take place at the Linwood Dunn Theater in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Pickford Center for Motion Picture Study, 1313 Vine St., in Hollywood.

As with all editions of The Reel Thing, we focus on the wide range of critical issues facing archivists, technicians, asset managers and curators of image and sound in the current media/digital landscape. Problems and solutions involving digital creation workflows (2K/4K/6K/8K), data storage access and recovery, image scanning and recording, image resolution metrics, traditional video and audio preservation and restoration issues are topics of interest. Of particular interest are the preservation and archiving issues surrounding Digital Intermediate and Digital Production workflows for motion pictures and television/streaming. If you have been working in these or related areas of interest, we invite you to propose a presentation summarizing the technical, theoretical and practical facets of your work/"

Opening Up the Archives: Part 2- Keeping Ahead of Obsolescence / BBC - video

Opening Up the Archives: Part 2- Keeping Ahead of Obsolescence / BBC - video | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Ant Miller (BBC Research and Development Blog):

"In this second part of the Archive Research film we take a look at the key challenges addressed by the 'preservation' work of R&D and the BBC Information & Archives teams.  With interviews from Dr Richard Wright, Adrian Williams of I&A and others, Alex Mansfield gets to the bottom of the latest technologies being used to ensure that the critical challenge of obsolescence is handled, and handled effectively and efficiency.

With huge files, and critical quality checks essential to preserving the legacy of the archive, the best efforts of engineers and archivists are being applied to saving this content for the future."
