When AVPS was asked to contribute to the Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) online preservation resource by bringing clarity to the client/preservation vendor relationship, we gladly accepted. The client/vendor relationship and matching of audiovisual preservation goals with institutional capability is a primary activity of AVPS. Given the present state of audiovisual preservation standards and best practices, this is a topic worthy of much conversation for the sake of needed clarification.
We were happy to have the opportunity to lend a helping hand in navigating this difficult path. You can download the resource created by AVPS in the resources section of our website.
