George Blood, L.P. is a leading provider of archival audio and moving image services, digitizing obsolete and deteriorating audio, video, and film media. Each month, George Blood, L.P. reformats approximately 1,000 hours of audio and video content.
Reformatting may be 1:1 preservation copies, or it may include conservation (recovering sound from failing or obsolete formats), and/or restoration (“enhancing” the sound, including improving intelligibility, removing noise, etc).
We have significant experience in a wide range of historic, obsolete or damaged audio and video formats, and in addressing collection-specific issues. Whether we’re working for a major symphony orchestra (clients include The Philadelphia Orchestra, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra) or working on oral histories (clients include the Museum of Jewish Heritage, the National Park Service, and the Library of Congress), whether your project is contained in a shoe-box or a truck, we can help you design and complete your archival audio, video, or motion picture film project.
Our expertise is brought to bear every day in our transfer studios. We also provide assessment and consultation services for your collections to help evaluate their needs, assess priorities and consider options (including designing in-house studios or deciding not to reformat!).
