Saw this on the lita list. I don't think it has made the rounds here - v. sorry if it has.
 I was interested in the lack of the word *copyright* in this opportunity. None the less, I'd attend if I could.

The following workshop is an in-person presentation that will be held at BCR’s Aurora offices, May 12, 2009, 9:00 am – 4:00 pm.
Analog-to-Digital Video Migration and All That Goes With It: Who does What, When, Where and How?

Whether you're the custodian of an enormous moving image library, a few shelves of videotapes or something in between, digitization is probably on your horizon if not already on your plate. Technology matters of course, but so does workflow and your role in it. This workshop condenses the lifecycle of a typical analog-to-digital conversion project into one workshop day so that you can get a feel for the workflows involved, ask technology questions along the way, and consider a migration project plan that will work for you and your stakeholders. By the end of the workshop, participants will be able to:
Draft a migration's workflow with corresponding staffing plan and job descriptions
Define a migration's technical requirements for Preservation, Mezzanine/Work, and Access copies
Estimate the technical resources required including storage and IT/networking
Draft a migration's project schedule including your role(s) and dependencies among stakeholders

Two subject matter experts will role-play as the Archivist and the Technologist to perform a migration project and simultaneously plan their next one. The Technologist will be played by Josef Marc, and the Archivist will be played by Steve Kwartek, both of Front Porch Digital (a.k.a. SAMMA). Josef is a member of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) and has been a senior technology and operations architect for DirecTV, Verizon FiOS, Sony Broadcast Electronics and Ascent Media. Steve is a longtime AMIA member and associate of SAMMA-founder Jim Lindner, and worked for years in a videotape-restoration facility.
 
This workshop is designed to introduce library, museum and archive staff to the issues involved with an analog-to-digital conversion project. Everyone who is contemplating a project of this nature is welcome to attend.
 
Fees:
BCR members -- $50.00 / Nonmembers -- $75.00
*1 BCR training voucher accepted as payment

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.
