Digitization of the video collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York

To date, the Museum has over 1,600 video works—an astounding collection that documents the history of this medium used in artistic practice from its beginning. In 2007, the first media conservator arrived at MoMA. In 2011, the Museum undertook a large-scale digitization effort focusing on the analogue videos. During the digitization project, each analogue video work in MoMA’s collection was migrated to a digital video file.
