Stanford Media Group

The SMG is a vibrant community of individuals from across the campus involved in video and audio media. We come together to share and foster best practices, expose and address common needs, and propose and implement solutions -- all in the interest of supporting teaching, learning, and research at Stanford University. All are welcome to join.

Upcoming SMG meetings

Date: September 11, 2015

Time: 3:30 PM

Location: 425 Broadway, Redwood City, CA 

Topic: Visit to the Media Preservation Lab

The Stanford Media Preservation Lab (SMPL) serves to preserve and enhance access to original sound and moving image collection materials held by Stanford University Libraries. The lab’s core operations are centered around creating a high-quality copy of the original content in digital formats that are easily accessed by researchers and others, and that enable ongoing, long-term management of the content for future users. We work closely with curators, archivists, conservators and other staff responsible for the care and management of special collections and archival materials.
