> Thought I?d add my thoughts on gallery headphones to the discussion.  The
> norm at the MFA used to be $20 Sony headphones, but they broke constantly
> and were pretty much considered disposable.  They were cheap, but it was
> embarrassing to come to the gallery and find a twisted mess of cables and
> missing earcups. 
> For our exhibition ?Seeing Songs? which has a 6 month+ run, we reached out
> to Sennheiser who donated 3 pairs of HD 280 Pro headphones which have
> replaceable earcups and cables, and are very durable.  They are ?closed? so
> they do not leak out the music, and fully cover the ear, effectively
> blocking out most of the gallery noise (which includes a very loud set of 30
> televisions nearby).
> After about 5 months (in a hidden part of the gallery with less guard
> coverage), the coiled cables are a little stretched out and one ear in one
> pair is cutting out occasionally.  Unfortunately not fixable by replacing
> the cable or earcup so it will go out to be fixed.
> 
> So I can?t say that the Sennheiser?s are perfect, but they are comfortable,
> nice looking, and sound great for the price:

> Taxonomy plays a critical role in user experience, but how can it manage
> content when access and information needs differ across a vast user base?
> How do you effectively offer information and resources in a meaningful way,
> through one portal, and to all users?
> 
> Hear Stephanie Lemieux and Mike Doane discuss optimizing user satisfaction
> through leveraging taxonomy to catalog users in the same way we use
> taxonomies to classify knowledge assets. This session will address how to
> determine and prioritize differing content needs, push dynamic content
> through audience profiles in SharePoint, and present a customized
> information architecture that makes it intuitive for users to target the
> information that best serves their unique needs.

> Jumpstart Series: Digital Asset Management
> We are excited to announce a new Jumpstart webinar series on Digital Asset

> 
> San Diego Museums Deploy Front Porch Digital's
> SAMMA SoloT to Share Cultural Wealth
> 
> LOUISVILLE, Colo. - The 17 cultural institutions in San Diego's Balboa Park
> together have deployed a single Front Porch Digital SAMMA SoloT to migrate
> the content of their media collections from analog videotape to secure
> digital storage. Ultimately, the project will not only preserve the media,
> but also enable the museums to open their unique and irreplaceable archives
> to virtual visitors via the Web. So far, some 700 of about 4,000 videotapes
> have been processed, with subject matter ranging from test flights filmed in
> the 1950s, to performances of African drumming, to Tony Hawk's feats of
> skateboard derring-do.
> 
> Packaged in a compact, turnkey, single-stream solution, the SAMMA Solo
> automatically migrates content from videotape into secure, readily
> accessible digital files, monitoring the process and implementing quality
> standards frame by frame. Balboa Park's SAMMA Solo simultaneously digitizes
> content at real-time speeds into five formats: MXF-wrapped JPEG2000, high-
> and low-resolution AVC, AdobeR FlashR, and QuickTimeR. The SAMMA Solo system
> is run as many as 16 hours a day by two interns and three members of the
> facilities' staff, none of them with technical backgrounds.
> 
> "We're pretty amazed at the speed and at how smoothly the process has gone,"
> said Rich Cherry, director of the Balboa Park Online Collaborative. "These
> are smaller institutions that are very cost-conscious, so we did a careful
> analysis of the ROI before we invested. What we found was that sharing the
> SAMMA Solo makes the price per tape extremely low in comparison to any other
> method we might have tried."
> 
> Overseen by the eight-month-old Online Collaborative, the project has
> resulted in some unanticipated benefits. For example, the museums' current
> archivists did not know exactly what was on every shelved tape because in
> some cases they lacked the appropriate playback device for viewing it. Thus,
> the digitization project has not only made content available, but also made
> it identifiable. 
> 
> "It's not only large, well-heeled organizations such as broadcasters and
> name-brand museums that have media worth saving," said Mike Knaisch, Front
> Porch Digital president and CEO. "All over the world, there are smaller
> cultural organizations with unique and valuable collections equally subject
> to the ravages of time. As the Balboa Park institutions have discovered, the
> SAMMA Solo is the most cost-effective means of preserving and making
> accessible this priceless cultural record."
