AMIA Conference 2014, October 8-11, Savannah, Georgia

This year’s AMIA conference was held, for the second time, in the historic city of Savannah, Georgia on the 8-11th October. The conference is a unique forum for colleagues from all over the field to meet, share information and work together, and is the world’s largest gathering of motion picture, recorded sound archivists and interested professionals. The objective of the conference is to develop, sustain and support the best practices in audiovisual archiving. dft is a generous sponsor of the event and is also very heavily involved in the organisation - in fact Colleen Simpson of the Los Angeles office is on the AMIA Board of Directors.

This year, the dft booth was in a prime location, close to the main entrance, and we promoted the Scanity HDR alongside the many archive restoration and scanning services offered by Prasad Corporation.

Interest came not only from the USA but from countries as far apart and diverse as Canada and Uruguay.
