Regardless of the scope of a film conversion project, rediscovery of history can feel sublime. At Herman ProAV we offer a number of analog-to-digital conversion tools to make obsolete reels, video and audio tape become fresh portals for memory and imagination.
AV breakthrough events thus far in 2012 include a revival of the Titanic: newly digitized footage from 1985 undersea explorations provides both a haunting and thrilling update of the iconic shipwreck. Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada unveiled their ongoing project to convert this archival treasure in a special showing on flat panel screens in the library.
The digitization project commemorates the 100th anniversary of the luxury liner´s collision with a monstrous iceberg off the Newfoundland coast. Also through audio analog-to-digital, conversations can now be clearly heard among the Russian diving crew who filmed at sea bottom under the technical direction of explorer and donor of the Ryerson collection, Dr. Joseph Macinnis. His pioneering undersea works contributed to creation of the blockbuster epic, Titanic.
