Digest: Film scanning considerations

This PrestoCentre digest summarises the considerations and decisions made in the context of a large-scale film scanning operation by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.

Sound and Vision guarantees the sustain- able preservation of the Dutch national audio-visual heritage and makes it accessible to professionals, educational institutes and the general public.

The considerations presented by the authors (Tom de Smet and Harm Jan Triemstra) are of most relevance to institutions or companies with large quantities of (16mm) film material to be digitised and that face time and budget constraints.
