BIO
The EXPERIMENTAL TELEVISION CENTER was founded in 1971, an outgrowth of a media access program established by Ralph Hocking at Binghamton University in 1969. Today, the Center continues to provide informational services to the media arts community. For 40 years ETC offered an international residency Program, grants to individuals and media organizations, and sponsorship assistance for independent media and film artists.

In 2011 ETC elected to refocus our activities. We are now able to continue work in the area of preservation. We will be spending more time on developing support for the new preservation activities with our partner organizations at Migrating Media, among them Hallwalls, Squeaky Wheel and The Standby Program among others. We collaborate with other organizations in the media preservation field to offer conferences and symposia, and to develop informational resources.

In 2010 ETC completed Experimental Television Center: 1969 – 2009 (5 DVD set with catalog), is an anthology of video art works created through the Residency Program since its inception in 1969 and includes the works of about 100 media artists. The collection was featured in 2011 at Anthology Film Archives. It was named top 100 DVDs for 2010 by LUX, the influential arts organization in London, UK. In 2011 the collection was named by LUX as one of 50 essential moving-image artists DVDs in publication. The collection is available through the well-known distributor of contemporary art Electronic Arts Intermix.

The complete library of artists’ works at ETC is being archived at the Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media. Under the sponsorship of the Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections at the Carl Kroch Library at Cornell University, the archive is curated by Dr. Tim Murray, Director of Graduate Studies in Comparative Literature and Director for the Society for the Humanities at Cornell. The mission is to digitize the collection and provide multiple levels of access to the works and study materials for people internationally.

With the assistance of Blackhammer Productions, we have redesigned the ETC website, so if you haven’t visited in awhile, please take a look. The Video History Project site is now more dynamic and content-rich. Begun in 1994 the Video History Project provides information about the formative development of media art and community television. The Video History site functions as a both a dynamic and interactive on-going research collection and dissemination vehicle for media professionals, educators, and media programmers as well as the general public.

The Experimental Television Center is happy to announce that our electronic media arts grants programs have been given new homes. The Technical Assistance Program will be managed by free103point9.

ETC has been administering the Presentation Funds and Finishing Funds Programs since 1989, and the Technical Assistance Program since 1998.
