The Digital Dilemma 2
Interesting report just out from the US Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences on digital preservation challenges faced by independent filmmakers, documentarians and nonprofit audiovisual archives:

It follows an earlier 2007 report ("The Digital Dilemma") that focussed on digital preservation strategies for major Hollywood studios.
IASA is mentioned on page 57 of the 2012 report: "Archives interviewed in the case studies noted that the International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives (IASA) technical recommendations influenced their decisions on file format and technical parameters. These archives believed that there are established standards for audio digital preservation, whereas none yet exist for moving image digital preservation."
