Manager, Applied Pictures
June 7 , 2010
About the Lecture:
Applied Pictures of Portland, Oregon, intends to develop an innovative system to read the information from magnetic media without making physical contact with the original tape. The hope is that such a system would not be specific to any single current format, and thus may be usable well into the future. Brian Walker, one of the principals of the group, discussed the process Applied Pictures is using to achieve this result and their plans for future development.
