Preservation Vendor Identified

Vendor - Scene Savers


The HKG Archive undertook a comprehensive search for vendors that will be used for the preservation and digitization work in the Pilot Project. Proposals were obtained from Bay Area Video Coalition, and D. C. Video, both in California,  and Scene Savers in Covington, Kentucky across the river from Cincinnati.  All three submitted excellent proposals. Based on these proposals I would not hesitate recommending any of these companies for future work.

However, in the end we could only select one, and I am happy to inform you we we selected Scene Savers. They were the only company that could handle all the the formats we are looking to preserve in this Project in-house. John Walco, from Scene Savers, will be coming to conduct a media digitization/ preservation workshop in August. More information about the workshop will be posted soon.
