An evening with Matthew White: The Digital Future of Moving Image Archives

Wednesday, March 1, 2006 7:00 PM
924 E. 57th St. Room #205
Biological Sciences Learning Center
University of Chicago Campus
Admission is free.

An eye-opening evening is in store with media archives expert Matthew White, who will discuss his extensive work using new technologies to successfully transform analog moving image collections into accessible digital archives. White has been involved in visual media for over 20 years, as a producer of programming, as a writer, and most recently as a media executive.

During his tenure as Executive Vice President for Digital Markets for National Geographic Ventures, White became a leading advocate for the digitization of film archives throughout the world. He was recently appointed to an ad-hoc committee for the United Nations to determine how distressed film and video archives in developing countries can be protected and commercialized via digital media. He will present examples of this work and discuss ways to digitize and commercialize moving image archives.

Anyone interested in how technology and new media are shaping the future of moving image archives will not want to miss this event. Q & A and a reception will follow the presentation.
