FotoBridge, the national photo scanning service picked by New York Magazine as “Best Photo Digitizer”, recently completed a significant photo scanning engagement to digitize NBCUniversal’s corporate photographic archives.
Based at Rockefeller Center, in mid-town Manhattan, NBCUniversal is a collection of some of today’s most valuable media assets owned by Comcast and General Electric (51% and 49% respectively). The company traces its’ history back to predecessor companies Vivendi Universal and MCA Inc. Formed in 2004 through the merger of GE’s NBC with Vivendi’s Universal Entertainment and subsequent buyout by Comcast in 2009. Today, the NBCUniversal family of brands include NBC, Universal Pictures, NBCUniversal Television Group, NBC News, CNBC, MSNBC, Bravo, The Weather Channel and Hulu.
The most recent photo scanning effort included digitizing nearly 40,000 – 35mm slides from the NBCUniversal archives. The collection included one-of-a-kind images of studio leaders, executives, staff, production facilities, costumes, offices, marketing campaigns and events. Now digitally preserved, backed-up and accessible – the collection can be easily leveraged for future events, publications, internal communications, and public relations purposes, among others.NBC
Georgia Tech Research Institute engaged FotoBridge to arrange, organize, classify and digitize a large collection of photographic prints, transparencies and other items. The resulting digital content helped form a robust photo and historical document archive, now available through the GTRI online site. As part of this effort, GTRI chose FotoBridge’s Text Note Archiving service to capture and index archive metadata.Georgia Tech
