I have been involved with media, in some way, for most of my professional life. Here are some of the projects and ideas I have worked with. There is some Background about archiving. A solution to these problems is demonstrated with the DADS - TIMS project. Another demonstration of the concept occurred at DEC World in 1992. The system, evolved and expanded to be fully facile with all media types and integrating high performance computing with traditional media technologies was  shown at the National Association of Broadcasters show in 1993.
