National Museum of Australia (NMA)

Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI) at Federation Square
Under Tim Handfield’s direction, icorp consolidated was the successful tenderer to provide all of the video production systems for ACMI. The tender involved the supply, installation, training and project management with a total cost of around $2 million.

This project included three main elements

2. The Digital Classroom – A facility for groups of up to 70 people at a time to experience hands on video production and editing. With an emphasis on using new media to tell stories, the digital classroom provides school students and community groups with access to the latest video technologies to turn their own stories into finished videos and to take video production skills back to their schools and community organisations.

3. The Digital Studio – A high-end video, animation and special effects studio used by ACMI staff and visiting artists to create content for the Screen Gallery, the world’s first public art gallery dedicated to screen based arts.

State Library of Victoria (SLV) – Digital workflow consultancy
Tim Handfield was commissioned to carry out a consultancy for the SLV to analyse requirements and make recommendations on an appropriate digitising solution for the scanning and digital photography of items from the SLV collection.

The recommendations of the report were subsequently carried out and form the basis of the digitising processes in place at the SLV today.

National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) Digitising Project
Under Tim Handfield’s direction, icorp consolidated was commissioned to provide the technology and services for the NGV to carry out a digitising project to create 20,000 high-resolution digital images of artworks from its collection.

The project included the specification and supply of digital photography equipment, special lighting and integrated digital workflow software for the NGV’s staff photographers to create new digital photographs of 10,000 works in the collection.

Included in the project responsibilities were the creation of technical specifications and quality standards for scanning and digital photography and the integration of metadata between the Gallery’s Vernon Collection Management System and the scanning and photography workflow systems.
