We are amidst a renaissance for the distribution and consumption of rich media content, yet essentially all of the world’s audiovisual content is at risk. From new born digital files to legacy film and tape assets, valuable content will expire without a content strategy. Our years of experience have shown us that no off-the-shelf product meets all the needs of audiovisual preservation.
When it comes to digitizing media collections, time is not on your side. The fact is there are more tapes in the world than there are machines available to transfer them. Content that exists only on magnetic tape is facing a game of musical chairs. When all of the decks of a given format are worn out, the music stops, and that content is lost forever.
BOTTOM LINE: You may only get one shot at digitizing your collections. That’s why the most respected organizations in the world have entrusted this critical task to Crawford LIFT.
