About
Ever wonder what kind of video treasures are sequestered in the depths of places like MOHAI, the Wing Luke Museum, or Seattle Art Museum? Join Moving Image Preservation of Puget Sound at the Forum and satisfy your curiosity!

MIPoPS (pronounced mee-pops) works with your favorite local libraries, museums, and archives to digitize the video treasures hidden in their collections. MIPoPS has the equipment and know-how to bring their old formats   U-matics, Betacam, DVCAM, LaserDiscs, VHS tapes, you name it  back to life. Partnerships between MIPoPS and local heritage organizations have brought hundreds of tapes from moldering, musty shelves back to the big (and small) screen! Video tape is a magnetic medium with a shelf life of less than 30 years. This means that any existing video tape is at critical risk of being lost to degradation  forever. MIPoPS is fighting the good fight against this magnetic media crisis, and they want to share the gems that theyve discovered in the process!

For more information about MIPoPS, please visit their website.
To view video digitized by MIPoPS, check out their collection on Internet Archive.
