George Blood, L.P
"Preserving the Sound and Motion of History"®
George Blood Audio and Video, L.P. is a leading provider of audio and video preservation digitization. GBAV recovers, digitizes, and transcodes many types of historic, obsolete, and damaged audiovisual media, including virtually all analog formats, as well as early and current digital formats – from 2” quadruplex video and cylinders to born-digital formats. Our on-site storage facility provides climate-controlled storage for collections.
At our studios in Philadelphia we digitize thousands of hours of audio and video collections from around the country every month. For thirty years we have provided audio recording services, new recordings, climate-controlled storage and preservation to such institutions as The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Boston Symphony, the Boston Public Library, the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the Library of Congress, Library and Archives of Canada, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Curtis Institute of Music, the Church of Latter-day Saints, the UCLA, Pacifica Radio Archives, Smithsonian Institution, Dallas Museum of Art and Columbia University Libraries.
Staff are active in research into workflow, best practices, metadata, authentication, and interchangeability of digital information. Mr. Blood is an active teacher and presenter at conferences, sharing these findings with members of the trade and collections managers.
