Day 2: Kodak's presence at AMIA
Kodak attendees at the Kodak Booth at the AMIA Vendor Cafe: Diane Carroll-Yacoby, Nicole Phillips, Rick Utley
We're continuing our Kodak presence at the Association of Moving Image Archivists conference this week in Austin, TX. Kodak has sponsored a booth in the popular Vendor Cafe at the Austin Hyatt Regency Downtown. We've had a lot of Kodak friends stop by to inquire about our presentation at The Reel Thing on Wednesday, where we discussed KODAK Asset Protection Films for the future. Additionally, many have inquired on our KODAK Media Asset Management Solutions Service, which we are currently beta testing. A panel discussion with the George Eastman House, describing the Case Study which was done for this offering, is scheduled for tomorrow Saturday, November 19.
Day 1: Opening Night Reception at AMIA

Diane Carroll-Yacoby, reporting here from Austin, TX, where the 21st annual Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA) Conference was kicked off yesterday with an Opening Night Reception, hosted by Kodak.
Approximately 500 delegates are here - representing a cross section of Studios, Post Houses, Colleges, Libraries, Non-Profit Institutions, and Manufacturers. The preservation, restoration, and management of motion content is the common passion in this group and attendees are here to expand their learning, network with colleagues, and celebrate our heritage through moving images.
“The Reel Thing”, a non-profit group supported by the professional archival community, held a symposium on November 16 at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. Approximately 350 delegates attended the afternoon program, which included 9 presentations – all on restoration, preservation, and management of motion content.
Rick Utley, VP of Preservation at ProTek Vaults (a Kodak subsidiary) & I presented for KODAK - on Asset Protection Films for the future. The report was warmly received and we’ve already had some great individual discussions on the report afterwards. We’ll be here in the Vendor Café for the next two days – supporting this community of passionate preservationists.
