Information needs for the professional media industry

Companies in news, movies, television and publishing have long relied on home-grown solutions to manage their relentless flow of new content and a variety of archiving and accessibility requirements. But another resource is available, one with decades of experience working quietly behind the scenes in the media and entertainment industry—LAC Group.

LAC Group is one of the few providers of end-to-end content and information management services to address the needs of companies in news, movies, television and publishing. From research support and video ingestion for the news operations of a major broadcaster, to film preservation of historical movies for Hollywood’s biggest studios, you’ll find the content and information experts of LAC Group playing an important role.

Professional media libraries need professional librarians

Librarians are the true content management experts and with roots in library services, LAC Group employs hundreds of librarians, archivists and information management professionals working with film, video, paper and digital media in active and archived collections.

While content is increasingly born digital, most news and entertainment providers have valuable film and tape collections as well, and LAC Group can manage and optimize them all:

  • Film preservation and archiving expertise from PRO-TEK Vaults, former division of Eastman Kodak and industry leader in cinematic film preservation, part of LAC Group since 2013.
  • Cataloging, encoding, indexing, linking and other content ingestion tasks.
  • High-resolution motion picture film scanning using the Lasergraphics Director 10K, the most sophisticated system in the world.
