As with all editions of The Reel Thing, this special edition will focus on the wide range of critical issues facing archivists, technicians, asset managers and curators of image and sound in the current media/digital landscape.  Problems and solutions involving digital creation workflows (2K/4K/6K/8K), data storage access and recovery, image scanning and recording, image resolution metrics, traditional video and audio preservation and restoration issues are topics of interest.  Of particular interest are the preservation and archiving issues surrounding Digital Intermediate and Digital Production workflows for motion pictures and television/streaming.
