USC Digital Repository to Preserve Half-Century of Oscar Telecasts 

LOS ANGELES — The University of Southern California Digital Repository, in partnership with the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (the Academy), will manage and preserve a 320-terabyte collection of audiovisual materials created by the Academy over the last 50 years.

The Academy collection covers thousands of hours of video footage documenting the Academy Awards® ceremony, and other programs and events that comprise the institutional history of the Academy. The collection also includes the Academy Film Archive’s digital restoration elements of film preservation projects. Highlights of recent digital restorations include feature films such as The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp, The Big Country and Rashomon, as well as numerous animated films, documentaries and silent era shorts.
