How to Choose what kind of box is best for Long Term Archiving of your precious photos?
Photo storage boxes are a popular storage option for photos and other items around the house, but how good are they for long term storage? If you have a lot of prints that you want to store for future use you may wonder what is the best way to do this. Should you put them in an album? Should you put them in photo storage boxes? Make sure that choose to save your photos in an acid free box. Any photo storage with acid will eat away at your photos instead of preserving them.
Your best best is the STiL Media & Photo Storage Box! Compared to cardboard, polypropylene will keep its physical structure for decades. Cardboard will disintegrate, and also generates acids and are not recommended for extended-term storage. Our design allows ventilation, gives a strong physical protection and increases stability.

Moreover, Kodak has introduced a new motion picture film:KODAK Color Asset Protection Film 2332 is optimized for content owners who originate or finish their productions on digital formats and want to protect their valuable media for the future. The stock offers over a century of dye stability when stored in recommended environments.
The company plans to add a black-and-white separation film to its asset-protection portfolio later this year.
“File-based projects often end up stored on tapes or drives, which need to be continually re-mastered or migrated, and run the risk of format obsolescence,” says Kim Snyder, president of Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging Division. “Our goal was to create an affordable film option - designed for content owners working on television programs, independent features, and documentaries - to assure long-term access to, and preservation of, their valuable content.”

The cultural institution includes 70 years of programming with their digital platforms garnering more than 20 million views globally according to Deborah Drisdell, Director General of Accessibility and Digital Enterprises, who spoke at Canada 3.0 last week. Drisdell said the cultural institution has been looking at documentaries, animation, and interactive content to add on to existing categories.

An N.F.L. Films cameraman on the sidelines last month
There’s only so much that happens on any given Sunday of the football season, but there is a seemingly insatiable appetite for it on television. So the assignment for N.F.L. Films is “to take the same material and make it entertaining in different ways for different shows, for different styles of fans,” said Ross Ketover, who along with Pat Kelleher is a senior coordinating producer and oversees the 65 producers who slice and dice games for the division. They said they created a thousand hours of new programming last year.
While television networks focus on the live events each week, their division films the games - yes, much is still on actual 16-millimeter film - for an array of future purposes. They are simultaneously documenting the history of the sport, promoting the National Football League and providing an important revenue source.
“I’ve always felt that a camera is an instrument of realism - and a creator of myth,” said Steve Sabol, whose father, Ed, founded what became N.F.L. Films in 1962. All together, the decades of films have given football a mythology that no other American sport has matched.
Some of N.F.L. Films’ footage is woven into films, commercials, and future installments of “Football Follies,” the blooper reels that Johnny Carson helped make famous on “The Tonight Show.” But much of it - like that of Mr. Tebow on Dec. 11 - is turned around much more quickly so it can be shown on TV before next week’s games. The unit has special couriers who rush raw film from stadiums to its building in Mount Laurel, N.J., near Philadelphia, where it is processed. In essence, the shows keep fans entertained on the days when games are not played.
I came across this article today and wanted to share with you. It’s amazing how long Kodak has been a pioneer in our industry!
With a simple slogan of “you press the button, we do the rest,” the fabled Kodak company has given Americans memories to hold onto for 132 years.

With more than 7,000 jobs at stake, Kodak executives are hoping to pull out of a $6.8 billion hole. In recent years, the company has focused on home photo printers and commercial inkjet printers that are finally on the verge of turning a profit.

“Kodak played a role in pretty much everyone’s life in the 20th century because it was the company we entrusted our most treasured possession to — our memories,” Robert Burley, a photography professor at Ryerson University in Toronto, told The Associated Press.
