Title:Considering JPEG2000 for Video Preservation: A Battle for Epistemic Ground
Author(s):Lischer-Katz, Zack
Subject(s):moving image preservation
preservation standards

Abstract:Digitization has become a widely adopted technique for preserving content stored on decaying physical carriers. Understanding the epistemic conditions within which digitization standards develop is an unexplored area of research. This project takes a case-study approach to look at the JPEG2000 standard and the discussion concerning its ability to support a suitable preservation format for analog video content. Following Keller's (2005) sociology of knowledge approach to discourse (SKAD) methodology, this project analyzed 433 messages gathered from the time period 2000 to 2013 on the public discussion board of the Association of Moving Image Archivists (AMIA). This research suggests that for this knowledge community, standards produce contested technological configurations. This research identifies two dominant competing interpretive frames: A frame of technological innovation, and a frame of institutional integration. The author suggests that considering epistemic registers provides a useful approach for understanding the process of adopting standards for preservation.
