Before the content of the DMI archives can be transcribed and encoded it must have a time-code window burned into a low res DVD copy of the raw footage. 117 dvds are now ready for transcription and encoding. A $200,000.00 process is now a necessary expense for the 650 hours of footage to become a searchable database. Online accessibility costs price most disability endeavors into non-existence. We must find a way to overcome these hurdles for our voices to be heard. Any support to achieve this goal are welcome.

Over 600 hours of dialogue and 50 hours 
of disability archival footage have been 
time-code embeded with this DVCAM Deck.
