Digital Conversion Interest Group Discussion/Interest group Dallas Convention Center
D171
Description :

Meeting of the PARS Digital Conversion Interest Group to present topics on interest. Preservation professionals are increasingly charged with varied and complex collections that include a growing amount of moving image material. Furthermore, limited resources and technical learning curves contribute to the challenge of preserving these materials.

This session will provide practical information on the preservation of moving image materials. A panel comprised of experienced professionals will address such topics as standards and technical specifications, file formats, codecs and wrappers, metadata, data storage, and delivery for access. The session will provide equal parts theory and application, with an eye to what small to mid-sized institutions can do to implement these strategies.

This will be an opportunity to learn more about general technical matters surrounding these complex challenges, as well as an opportunity to bring specific questions and success stories to what will be a mostly “town hall” style meeting.

Time will additionally be allotted at the end of the program for discussion of the Annual Meeting’s agenda.
