Case study system for preserving digital motion picture materials l.jpg
Case-study system for preserving digital motion picture materials

The case-study system is based on an actual and historic digital collection to discover the operational realities of digital motion picture archival strategies.

The goals of the case-study system are to be a resource for:

  • cataloging and processing a sample digital motion picture collection

  • investigating and reporting on digital archival systems for motion pictures

  • investigating and reporting on metadata standards for cataloging and classifying digital motion picture materials

  • generating recommendations for cataloging and classifying digital motion picture materials

  • defining the role of the digital preservationist

Image data format specification development and standardization l.jpg
Image data format specification, development, and standardization

This project element will focus on the specification,

development, and standardization of a related set

of digital motion picture file formats.

The formats that will be developed are:

  • Image acquisition format

  • Mastering format

  • Archival format

Educational efforts l.jpg
Educational efforts standardization

The Academy has a long history of producing informative and educational public programs and materials that draw on its extraordinary membership and high public profile. The Digital Motion Picture Archive Framework Project is expected to produce a wealth of information to be shared with the industry and public at large.

Each of the project elements will have associated educational and/or publication components.

Research l.jpg
Research standardization

This project element will support research efforts, either performed at the Academy or directed by the Academy at appropriate universities and research labs. Initial topics for consideration include:

Development of methods for identifying early warning of the deterioration of physical media for digital moving image content

Suitability of data compression technologies for the digital motion picture archive

Archiving and preservation of content creation tools

Alternate image recording techniques and technologies for long-term archival use

Standardized digital archive test images sequences


Partners l.jpg
Partners standardization

The Council’s current work involves the participation of over 150 of the industry’s leading technologists, representing all of the major motion picture studios and major technology and service providers.

The Digital Motion Picture Framework Archive Project will draw from this pool of experts and others outside the motion picture industry as required.
