Hi Jae,

Thanks for the input. I hadn't heard of this company or its products
before. It looks very promising. Thanks for telling me about it and
giving me great, useful information on it. I really appreciate your
response.

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
