Best Practice Guidelines for Digital Collections (2007)

  • Specific standards and guidelines, not just about digital video
  • Master vs access copies

  • Some institutions transfer to DigiBeta and store as preservation masters, has the potential drawback of misalignment of frame rates or the instability of magnetic video compared to film base and reduction in the quality of the image (37)
  • File size/storage requirements is one difficult in developing standard best practices for video (40)

States that the standard is having an MPEG2 master copy, but if there are enough resources for better quality have MPEG2 as sub-master copy.
