New York Archivist Roundtable Workshop On Moving Image And Sound Preservation

February 1, 2008

Serving as Education Coordinator for NYART, Chris Lacinak of Audiovisual Preservation Solutions hosted and participated as a speaker in a workshop titled “Preserving Your Moving Image and Sound Collections: An Overview of the Present with a View Toward the Future”.

The workshop featured an array of impressive speakers including Howard Besser, Director of the Moving Image and Preservation Masters Degree Program at NYU; Lee Shoulders, Getty Images; Joshua Ranger, NYU; Tanisha Jones, The New York Library for the Performing Arts, and Peter Kauffman, President of Intelligent TV.

Attending archivists from the New York Metropolitan area represented a wide array of commercial, academic, non-profit, governmental and arts institutions. While some attendees have been working with the preservation of their moving image and sound collections and were seeking to learn new developments in the field, others are just beginning to overcome the unique challenges posed by efforts at preserving dynamic media and content.

The workshop quickly reached maximum capacity early in the enrollment process. Initial feedback provided by the attendees indicates that the event was an overwhelming success.
