HOLLYWOOD, CA, May 2, 2019 – While legacy analog media archives continue to age, new challenges come from the impact of the pace of technological change on more contemporary archives of digital media. At the recent Audio Engineering Society Convention in Dublin, Ireland, Iron Mountain Incorporated® Entertainment Services, the global leader in protection and preservation of entertainment content, was represented at a highlighted workshop titled “Media Preservation and Recovery” that took place on Friday, March 22.

Iron Mountain Audio Engineer Kelly Pribble served as the workshop’s chair/moderator, alongside the following panelists: Alex Tomlin of Bonded Services UK (an Iron Mountain Entertainment Services Company); Federica Bressan of Ghent University (Ghent, Belgium); and Brad McCoy of the Library of Congress (Culpeper, VA, USA). This workshop brought together leaders in the industry from a number of different disciplines to help guide attendees and give them practical information on how to save and preserve their most valued works. The workshop was also the first Western Europe AES event showcasing the combined efforts of Iron Mountain Entertainment Services and the Bonded Services Group, an international group of providers of media asset management services for global entertainment and media companies that was acquired by Iron Mountain in 2017.

“Each member of the workshop offered their expertise to the attendees,” stated Kelly Pribble. “My section was on mold remediation, storage issues and the degradation of tapes from the years 1975 to 1990 and all the problems facing us. Alex discussed the challenges confronting archivists, including dealing with old and rare recording equipment, hard drives that won’t spin up and the problems of recovering a full album of material that was only done digitally. Brad covered the 2018 AES International Conference on Audio Archiving, Preservation & Restoration hosted last summer by the Library of Congress’s National Audiovisual Conservation Center, as well as issues with lacquer discs. And finally Federica covered analog issues – when a tape needs to be baked, if it’s causing degradation of that tape, and what we have to go through with the sticky shed syndrome and issues like that. It was a very comprehensive workshop.”

Greg Parkin, Global Head of Partnerships & Industry Relations, Iron Mountain Entertainment Services, stated, “We are extremely proud to have Kelly and Alex participate at AES Dublin and share their extensive knowledge on archiving and preservation with AES attendees. Archiving is more important than ever, and as the global leader for storage and information management services, we can offer our expertise and perspective to the audio community to help ensure their works are preserved for the next generation.”
