The goal of this product is to serve as a master for distribution copies to satisfy most customer requests as well as to protect preservation elements from loss, theft, and mishandling. This product is the next best physical condition copy to the preservation master; therefore this product may substitute for the original record if the original record is no longer viable.
|Nature of Source Material|
For the most part, film-based product specifications are dictated by the source material’s film element type. There is some flexibility however in regards to combining separate picture and soundtrack reels into a composite reel. This can be done for convenience or space management without any compromise to product quality. Selected image improvements such as color correction and density correction are routinely performed during the reformatting process.
