T3Media, Inc. (formerly Thought Equity Motion), a leading provider of cloud-based video management and licensing services, announced today that the Defense Imagery Management Operations Center (DIMOC) has awarded the company a 5 year contract to digitize, store and provide access to the Department of Defense’s (DoD) visual information archive.
“By leveraging T3Media’s enterprise-scale video management platform and T3 Library Manager product, we’re able to open up the DoD archive for a wider range of uses and focus on our mission—to serve as the official DoD visual information records center,” said Michael Edrington, Director of the Defense Imagery Management Operations Center. “Due to the sheer volume of the DoD visual information library, it was cost prohibitive to undertake this digitization and storage project internally. T3Media’s scale and experience digitizing, storing and licensing content for the world’s largest media companies made them a logical fit to work with for this project.”
DIMOC will leverage the company’s T3 Library Manager solution to provide online access to more than 1 million unclassified and released DoD assets including, video, audio, photographs and documents. The archive ranges from wartime footage and photographs of personnel and military equipment to World War II audio communications and instructional military videos. As content is digitized, T3Media will be adding the DoD archive to its footage licensing site, www.t3licensing.com.
“Under this partnership, designated users within various government departments will be able to login to their T3 Library Manager accounts and search and download current and historic DoD multimedia with just a few clicks,” said Frank Cardello, General Manager, Platform Services at T3Media. “In addition to providing the United States Government with enhanced access to the archive, we are looking forward to sharing DoD videos, photographs, and audio with the global production community.”
