Mass Productions is currently busy digitizing over 500 videotapes for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The archive contains Umatic, Betacam, VHS, and Mini DV videotapes. The 3/4 umatic videotapes go back as far as 1977 and require baking and cleaning before transfer.
The videotapes contain a lot of historic footage of MIT. We restored a 1971 inauguration concert for Jerome Wiesner featuring a live performance by the late Pete Seeger! We are preserving the decaying videotapes to digital video files for archival storage.
