Business need: Curate assets for monetization and preservation
Beginning in 2017, a major non-profit sports museum contracted LAC Group, and specifically the Media & Archive team, to curate nearly 10,000 mixed media assets.
The project began on location at the museum for several months as a team with extensive experience in asset identification, cataloging, and metadata skills, barcoded and applied minimum metadata to the assets in a secure Media Asset Management (MAM) system used by LAC Group.
Business solution: Thorough inspection of collection to prep for archive
After curating the collection onsite, the entire collection was moved to LAC Group’s Media & Archive service and vaulting location in Burbank, CA. Once there, with all the assets identified and secured in the cold vaults at 45F/25%RH, a more intensive inspection of all the assets was conducted over many months.
The purpose of the inspections was to identify the condition of the film assets, complete a full metadata schema, confirm any previously identified redundancies in the collection, and rehouse the assets in archival containers.
