‘Screening the future conference 2012: play, pause and press forward'

May 21, 2012 - May 23, 2012

Los Angeles, CA, USA

An event entitled 'Screening the future conference 2012: play, pause and press forward' will take place from 21 to 23 May 2012 in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Traditionally, audiovisual archives have been built around particular media such as moving pictures, radio or television, or hardware. Digital archives, though, can incorporate every type of media, and consolidate all media and hardware concerns in a single system. Institutionally, many entities are still dealing with the challenges and opportunities posed by this new platform.
Re-orienting operations around data requires changes not just in technology, but in management and culture. These issues and the questions they raise have been answered differently in the commercial and non-commercial sector.
The event will look at the current status of audiovisual archives, the main challenges that archives and producers face in terms of technology, institutional positioning, changes in use and market, and future readiness.
The event will feature a seminar on knowledge exchange between North American and European stakeholders.
