AudioVisual Preservation Solutions released its sixth annual original greeting card for the 2011 holiday season. This year's card features an illustration of the first commercially available 3/4" U-matic deck in commemoration of the 40th anniversary of its initial release to consumers and significance in the wider adoption of videotape beyond the television studio.
Also available for viewing now is the 2010 holiday card, which features a punch-hole design of the AVPS logo in recognition of the history of punch cards in the development of modern digital technologies.
As in past years, the cards are inspired by the field that we work in and its history. As audiovisual and digital media become a more ingrained part of society, we often forget the moments of origin or the amazing advancements they represented. The original art work is created by Stephanie Housley, a New York based artist/designer.
We are pleased to send these greetings to our clients and all of the other members of our community who are dedicated to the preservation of our audiovisual heritage. We are especially delighted to note that we often see the cards posted in the archives we work in long after the holiday season has ended.
