The University of Iowa has a dvd cleaner/resurfacing machine that we
have had good luck. The machine is the RTI Echo Senior Disc Chek. As for
mending them if you mean physically fix them if broken I haven't heard
of anything and yes we do throw them away....Pam

This brings up a question that we've been batting around here - how
many libraries perform this kind of cleaning/fixing of DVDs? When
we inherited the video collection from the campus Learning Resource

'nothing to be done' for damaged DVDs. Given the responses to

Subject: [Videolib] PPR for "The Crime of Padre Amaro"

Hello all,
I'm not having any luck finding a distributor who handles the
non-theatrical public performance rights for this film. Can anyone
direct me, please?

"The Crime of Padre Amaro" (also called El crimen del Padre Amaro, or
The Crime of Father Amaro), 2002, directed by Carlos Carrera.

The Internet Movie Database mentions Columbia Pictures, Samuel
Goldwyn LLC, and Sony Pictures Entertainment, and somewhere else I
found that the studio is Sony Pictures. However, even with all those
leads, I'm just going around in circles and haven't gotten any closer
to a distributor with PPR.

Thanks in advance for any information you can send me.

Sad. Not exactly an LRC in the know...

After reading Jim's article, comparing costs for purchase of DVD
cleaning equipment & staff time, we opted to send DVDs and CDs out to
one of the disc cleaning services, such as Rubberdisc, for the few
problem discs that we have.

Amy,

Many, many libraries use disc repair products, be it is RTI or others,
and
they are of varying quality. I have used RTI products (Eco Jr, etc.) in
a
few settings, and they are very effective.

The question of whether discs are able to be repaired depends upon the
extent and kind of damage. If the disc has minor surface scratches on
the
read side of the disc (the side that is "read" by the player's laser),
it is
almost guaranteed that these repair products will do the trick. If, on
the
other hand, there is severe damage such as a deep scratch, or damage to
the
protective layer on the non-read side of the disc, then the likelihood
of
repair is significantly reduced.

Most repair systems are based on the same concept: remove very small
layers
of the disc surface until the offending blemish is obliterated. Since
the
physical depth of discs (and they vary from type of disc--DVD, music CD,
book on CD, CD-R, etc.) is very shallow, only so much of the surface
material can be removed before it will begin to damage the digital
information stored on the disc...which explains why the severity of
damage
will determine the chances of success.

Hope this helps!

Eric

So far have chosen to outsource our repairs as well. We have considered

at times purchasing our own repair unit, although we don't have enough
data to show a financial benefit necessarily. We send ours out to
Rubberdisc, who does a very good job at doing the repairs, discs
generally come back looking like new. The main disadvantage is the
process of packing and sending in batches as opposed to just being able
to repair individual ones in house when needed. We decide which ones to

send out based on the level of damage, but short of cracks in the disc,
we have been able to repair everything.

They may have said there was nothing to be done based on using other
repair systems such as the Disc Doctor. As far as I'm concerned, those
cheap repair systems are useless, the difference between a professional
system (outsourced or in house) is dramatic.

Hi, All

I am trying to locate a program that aired on television sometime in
the last year or so. The information given to me is that it
concerned women trained as religious leaders in the Middle East to
counter male dominance in the country. That's all I have... any
thoughts or suggestions are welcomed. Thanks for your help with this.

According to Amazon the DVD is released by Fox
So should be Criterion ( the one near Chicago)

Some Thoughts on Digital Licensing for Video

Because Berkeley is on the cusp of trying out on-demand delivery of=20
portions of its video collection, I=92ve been doing a lot of talking
and=20
thinking about the issue of digital licensing of video content. It
is=20
apparent that the non-theatrical VOD marketplace is, at very best,
immature=
=20
and confused (and confusing) regarding economic models for VOD delivery.
A=
=20
number of models seem to be shaking out:

A. Content maintained on vendor=92s remote server and licensed annually
or=
=20
semi-annually based on number of titles selected, institutional
head-count,=
=20
or number of synchronous users. I=92m not aware of any vendors
offering=
flat=20
annual licenses for unlimited institutional access to vendor-maintained
VOD=
=20
servers.

B. Content encoded by vendor in one or more of several formats
(Windows=20
Media, QuickTime, mpeg4, etc.), and licensed for in-perpetuity use for
a=20
flat fee (e.g. Films Media Group). Variable licensing fees based on=20
whether or not the institution has bought the licensed title in
previous=20
formats (tape or DVD). In some instances, fees may be based on number
of=20
titles licensed. In this model, client is responsible for uploading
and=20
maintaining these files on local server. (Client may also be required
to=20
transcode files=ADe.g. from mpeg4 to a streamable format).

C. Above model but with term licensing: licensing for a set period
of=20
time, usually one to five years. At the end of the term, licenses must
be=
=20
renegotiated.

D. Distributor offers digital licensing rights alone=ADi.e. without=20
supplying the source files. Institution is responsible for encoding off
of=
=20
DVD or tape and uploading to local server. Either in-perpetuity or
term=20
licensing.

E. Jon Miller of First Run/Icarus has suggested a model in which an
entire=
=20
catalog of a distributor (including new additions) is licensed annually
for=
=20
a flat fee. Not aware that one is actually putting this model into play

F. Content encoded and delivered to client by an outside vendor which
does=
=20
not have control or rights over the content. Annual or per-title
service=
=20
costs. Examples of this type of service is CDigix=20
(http://www.cdigix.com/). These types of firms seem to be geared
largely=20
toward the delivery of content (including feature films) for higher
ed=20
teaching and learning (course reserve viewing, learning management
systems,=
=20
etc.). Many of these firms claim such use constitutes fair use or
throw=20
the issue of rights clearance on the shoulders of the client.

Since I think that, at least in the short run, the models C or D above
are=
=20
likely to be the most common, I=92d like to offer a few opinions
about=20
it. In my book, the requirement for periodic licensing of video
content=20
(as opposed to in-perpetuity licensing) is both impractical and
unwarranted=
=20
in terms of fair market practices. I=92ve occasionally heard vendors=
compare=20
term licensing of VOD content to licensing of journal databases and
other=20
online text resources. There really is no direct comparison.
Journal=20
databases, which offer indexing and full-text journals, are
maintained=20
remotely by a vendor and offer a content base which is continually=20
growing. In some instances, online access to specific ejournals or=20
aggregates of ejournals is provided at no cost if an institution
subscribes=
=20
to the print version of the publication(s). The licensing model for=20
ejournals varies widely, from being on institutional head-count to flat
fee=
=20
annual licensing.

VOD licensing is a considerably different matter. Once purchased by
an=20
institution, a physical tape or DVD, may be circulated or shown ad=20
infinitum (or until the physical piece disintegrates) to individual
viewers=
=20
and classroom groups. If I need to show this to groups outside of the=20
classroom, I can purchase PPR=ADa one shot cost. In most cases, once
a=20
distributor sells a title (or a few copies of it) to an institution,
that=92=
s=20
pretty much the end of that sale (except for replacements, and these
are=20
usually discounted). It is, consequently, unclear to me why I would
be=20
expected to =93re-buy=94 the same title every year or two or three in=
digital=20
form, particularly if I already own a tape or DVD of the titles in=20
question. It=92s not as if digital distribution is cutting into
potential=
=20
future sales of that title to my institution. There is no continuing=20
maintenance or labor cost to the distributor for titles licensed for=20
VOD. (There ARE, however, substantial costs to the client in model D=20
above: the institution must invest in technology and staff to=20
locally-encode and serve the material). In fact, the cost to
distributors=
=20
of tracking and administering term licenses would seem to be
substantially=
=20
higher than the one-time gambit of in-perpetuity licensing.

Unlike ejournal databases, the only added value to the digital product
from=
=20
year to year is the convenience of 24/7 access. (I could go into a
long=20
and tedious screed here about the current inferiority of=20
digitally-delivered images compared to DVD or even tape, but I=92ll=20
refrain). I have a feeling that in many cases the model of term VOD=20
licensing has been put into play simply because digital sounds new and
sexy=
=20
and that period licenses sound economically safer than licensing the
files=
=20
=93forever=94. I also think that there is yawning gap between the needs
and=
=20
outlook of video librarians vested with selecting, maintaining, and=20
delivering standing collections and the needs of instructional tech
players=
=20
on campuses vested with =93point-of-need=94 delivery of classroom=20
content. (The latter probably wouldn=92t blink at the concept of
term=20
licensing).

In any case, your thoughts and comments would be interesting and=
appreciated!
