Organizations are awash in media, yet some content is inherently more valuable. For help curating, managing and preserving those assets, remember LAC Group for media and archiving services:

  • How to make your collection easily accessible and protected from degradation, environmental hazards, unauthorized access and other threats.
  • Whether to ‘integrate-and-preserve’ or ‘digitize-and-destroy’ your film, tape or paper.
  • Curation decisions that consider cultural, historical, legal, branding and monetary goals and needs.

Our media and archive team has been entrusted with the care of many high-value collections, large and small: broadcast news footage, decades of major motion pictures, syndicated cartoons, corporate archives and historical archives of all kinds.

Comprehensive film and other media services, from creation to archive

We service the entire lifecycle, from cradle to grave—except we’ll make sure your content doesn’t end up in the graveyard.

Movies shot digitally or on film, streaming media, historical assets on nitrate stock or microfilm, videotape, audiotape, negatives, still images, documents and anything in-between.

  • We’ve seen it all—the good, bad and ugly of conditions—in collections ranging from several to several hundreds-of-thousands of items.
  • We do it all—for one-vendor convenience and security—or give us one piece of the puzzle. We’ll make sure it fits with the rest.

From needs assessment to planning and preparation to long-term, archival storage, we’ll help you design and build a solid foundation to preserve all your media assets.

Physical, born-digital or digitized media

  • Comprehensive film preservation services including inspection and restoration, organizing, scanning, metadata services and bar-coding.
  • Long-term physical storage in secure, climate-controlled warehouses and highly-specialized film vaults for cold, archival storage.
  • Digitization services including high-resolution flat-bed and film-reel scanning for motion pictures on the sophisticated Director 10K scanner by Lasergraphics.
