WHAT IS MEDIA PRESERVATION?

Media Asset Preservation – MAP is a unique company that specializes in converting old media assets into contemporary digital formats, helping our clients store, manage, and utilize these new assets. We are a professional company and not a consumer company. We transfer any historical media the right way to give our clients the best quality possible.

WHO USES MEDIA ASSET PRESERVATION?

Any organization with a risky history of visual and/or audio documentation. MAP has worked with large corporations, museums, and non-profit agencies.

WHAT TYPE OF MEDIA ASSETS DOES MAP PRESERVE?

Just about everything from VHS videotape to 16mm film reels. As a production specialist with over 35 years experience, MAP has the technical capabilities to convert nearly any video format, just about every film format – both motion pictures and stills, as well as any audio format used over the last 100 years.

WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT PRESERVING MY ASSETS?

1.) Historical Documentation: For many companies, their media is an historical record of their growth, development and achievements. Historical documentation and media also represent a sizable investment.

2.) Safety: Magnetic Media – both video and audiotape – deteriorates over a relatively short period of time. Once degenerated, recreating a master is not cost effective. Film negatives also deteriorate but are much more likely to be destroyed by moisture, heat, or fire and once a master negative is gone, it can never be replaced.

3.) Cost Effective Storage: Digital media storage devices have a radically smaller storage footprint than tape and film.

4.) Usability: Once your old assets have been converted to digital assets by MAP, you have access to an easy-to-use search database, allowing you to see and hear any clip in your inventory on any computer connected to the internet.

5.) Redundant Backup: MAP provides each client with a 4-layered safety net. At any given time there are 4 different sets of masters, at two different locations, making the possibility of irrevocable destruction a non-factor.

t

should you ever digitize any videotape to a DVD?

No. You should never digitize any videotape to a DVD. You need to digitize the videotape to an archive quality digital file and then make a DVD to watch. When the DVD dies, you have a digital file to make another one without losing your history.
