AVPS was honored to collaborate with the stellar team at the Image Permanence Institute (IPI) on their Magnetic Media Study. This study aims to find correlative and causal relationships between detectable degradation mechanisms and quality of reproduction. In finding such relationships, tools can be created similar to the IPI Acid Detection Strip, which will detect a known indicator of failure.
AVPS was proud to be asked to share our experience and knowledge on the matter of assessment and we are thankful to the Image Permanence Institute for the opportunity to work together. You can view the special thanks to AVPS, and more importantly the full report from the study in the coming months.
