  • Would you like to learn more about video and magnetic media preservation?  Join us for an afternoon workshop with Morgan Morel, Preservation Manager at the Bay Area Video Coalition in San Francisco.  Morgan will discuss current methods for transferring old video formats such as mini DV, Hi8, Beta, VHS, Umatic and 1/2″ Open Reel Video, and demonstrate the current digitization workflow being implemented in VSW’s new Media Conversion Lab. Participants may bring a video of their own to convert to a digital file (15 minutes or less).

    Seating is limited.  Tickets can be purchased in advance through the VSW Bookstore.


    This project is made possible with funds from the NYSCA EMF in Partnership with Wave Farm: Media Arts Assistance Fund, with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
