Forbes Features Starchive’s Work with the Bob Dylan Music Company
Our work with our first client, the Bob Dylan Music Company, caught the attention of Forbes. Starchive, the latest in media asset management, enabled Dylan’s team to easily organize and play audio, video, and photo files, in addition to records of physical notebooks and lyric sheets.
Starchive excels in tapping the potential of all types of digital assets. The archive included footage from Dylan’s 1965 and 1966 tours, and we turned the footage into still frames, rendered in high-res TIF files. Previously, few high-quality images of Dylan’s life were accessible. Now, high-quality audio, photo, and video are at the company’s fingertips, and the original file metadata, or information about permission and dates, stays intact.
Our CEO, Richard Averitt, says: “Even the folks that have worked with Dylan for years have said, ‘oh wow’ at emerging material that has changed or enriched their ideas and helped round out the story.”
