Organizations such as the Association of Moving Image Archivists, the Society of American Archivists, the American Library Association and several others around the world, are the stewards of our media heritage. Whether the media is film, video, audio, paper or new digital assets, the preservation of, and access to our history, depends on the critical care that a special group of dedicated individuals and their teams provide. PRO-TEK and the LAC-Group are very proud to be able to provide support to our preservation partners through our very experienced technicians, our services and asset storage, and our sponsorship of several very important organizations. We admire and share your passion and we are committed to preserving history, one asset at a time.
AMIA is everyone. Our members come from everywhere – studios, small archives, giant archives, broadcasters, technology innovators, universities, filmmakers and technology companies – and they are in the trenches on these issues. I often hear that the digital future looks dark – that it will be difficult or impossible to preserve films digitally. And I always say – maybe you should hire a moving image archivist – your outlook will improve!
