Mass Productions digitizes over 500 videotapes for MIT

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.
