SUSTAINABLE AUDIOVISUAL COLLECTIONS THROUGH COLLABORATION
7th-9th MARCH, 2016
The Joint Technical Symposium (JTS) explores the technical issues affecting the long term survival and accessibility of audiovisual collections. JTS is an international symposium and brings together the world’s foremost research and thinking regarding the preservation and accessibility of moving image and recorded sound collections, from 19th century endeavours to the most recent digital technologies.
Since the last JTS in 2010 the audiovisual archiving world has seen many dramatic changes and advancements in the technologies that enable preservation. The rate and magnitude of these changes requires a collaborative approach to enable all archives to make sense of the best way to keep collections alive for future generations.
The theme of JTS 2016 “Sustainable Audiovisual Collections Through Collaboration” addresses this dynamic landscape. The papers presented at JTS 2016 will cover the ongoing technological viability of audiovisual collections both as individual items and holistically, as well as every aspect of audiovisual media preservation and access such as conservation and restoration, harvesting and accessing collection information – including metadata and intellectual property.
JTS 2016 is organised under the auspices of UNESCO affiliate the Co-ordinating Council of Audiovisual Archives Associations (CCAAA) and its members’ Technical Committees. The event is hosted by the South East Asia-Pacific Audio Visual Archive Association (SEAPAVAA) and the National Archives of Singapore (NAS).

About the JTS 2016 Logotype
The JTS has previously used a logotype and JTS 2016 continues this direction, with some adaptations within the limits permitted by the CCAAA Board.
The concept was to convey some sense of differentiation from the previous JTS’ identities. The JTS 2016 version has a fresh look , with hint of an Asian theme in the typeface to reflect that the event is being held in Asia. It is the first time since the inception of JTS in 1983, that it is held in this region. Previous JTS took place in North America & Europe.
The typeface (Bradley Hand ITC) was chosen as it is reminiscent of Asian calligraphic brush strokes without being blatantly so.
Red and white was chosen as a strong, eye catching combination with the contrasting dark blue text below providing good legibility, even with the smaller font.
The JTS 2016 logotype comes in two forms – one with a faux 3-D effect to be used on the website, and a flat text form for any printed information, T-shirts, bags, etc.
In summary, the JTS 2016 logotype is essentially about a simple, individual and effective graphic.
The logotype is designed by Mick Newnham.
