Chris Lacinak Joins The Technical Committees Of IASA And ARSC

July 2, 2007

Chris Lacinak, founder of AudioVisual Preservation Solutions (AVPS), has been accepted into the technical committees of the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) and Association of Recorded Sound Collections (ARSC).

As chair of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) Technical Committee on Archiving Restoration and Digital Libraries (TCARDL), Chris now contributes as a member to all of the relevant organizations which develop best practices and standards for sound archiving and preservation.

The IASA technical committee has produced extremely important and definitive publications for sound preservation over past years. Chris looks forward to contributing to current efforts, and will begin with the revision of TC-04: Guidelines on the Production and Preservation of Digital Objects, which places a heavy emphasis on metadata for sound preservation.

The ARSC technical committee has served the field for many years. There is currently a very important project in process to produce the ultimate archival storage container for cylinders at a cost effective price, which is led by Bill Klinger. Chris looks forward to working with Bill and the other knowledgeable and respected members of the ARSC technical committee.
