LOS ANGELES, March 9, 2016 - 

– The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) has announced

The Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) has announced May 4 as the date for the New York outing of its popular Digital Asset Symposium (DAS), a day of engaging and educational discussions on the most current challenges and breakthroughs in managing digital assets. This year the event will be held at the Victor Borge Theatre in Manhattan.

“DAS presents an uncommon opportunity to explore projects in a way that allows honest analysis and discussion,” noted Chris Lacinak, President of AVPreserve who serves as Program Chairman for DAS New York. “By building on a case study framework, DAS enables us to look at what works, what didn’t and what needs to be understood. DAS is aimed at the entire community of technical and creative users to share what they are working on, which helps raise the bar on knowledge and understanding. To be able to do so in this open and collegial environment, is a rare and wonderful experience.”

DAS brings together a cross-section of experts from different industries and disciplines sharing user perspectives and expert analysis to examine the full life cycle of the media asset – from content creation to rights management to assuring asset preservation. Programmed by leading professionals working in the field, it offers a unique perspective and an opportunity to exchange information with colleagues facing similar challenges.

Leading off this year’s edition of DAS, Facing History and Ourselves will present information on their approach to preserving its media collections. Facing History is an international educational and professional development organization that engages students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and antisemitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. Over the past four years, Facing History has successfully digitized its legacy media, established policies for born digital production, implemented and rolled out a DAM, established a taxonomy, and integrated with a web content management system and an online video platform. Eva Radding, Digital Archive and Library Systems Manager for Facing History, will talk about the process, challenges and value of this transformation, and what it has meant to Facing History.
