The Experimental Television Center (ETC) was established in 1969 by Ralph Hocking at the State University of New York at Binghamton and is among the oldest continuously operating media arts centers. For over 40 years the ETC has supported electronic media artists with its incomparable toolset. This seminal media arts organization has dramatically influenced the field of media/video arts and has become a cherished resource to generations of artists.

In 1972, the ETC began a residency program, inviting artists such as Nam June Paik, Shikego Kubota, poet Jackson MacLow, and glass artist/video activist Rudi Stern to explore the center's tools. Engineer David Jones developed ETC's unique one of a kind image-processing system in 1974. This system laid the groundwork for subsequent innovations in artist-oriented software and tools, including Jones's frame buffer and two-dimensional print software. Over the years the Center's residency program gained international recognition through the works of visiting artists, among them Peter D'Agostino, Peer Bode, Shalom Gorewitz, Barbara Hammer, Ken Jacobs, and Gary Hill. In 1978 the Center relocated to Owego, New York, where it continues to operate today.

For it's 40th year anniversary, the ETC has released a DVD compilation of artists works created during ETC residencies. This enormous undertaking required digital restorations, and took three years to complete, resulting in a 20 hour compilation featuring over 100 artists.

Digitizing, restorations, and overall support: Bill Seery, Maria Venuto and the Standby Program.
Project manager and DVD author: Aaron Miller.
Art director: Diane Bertolo.
The DVD is accompanied by a 130-page catalog and is distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix

A 40-min compilation program focusing on historic works from the early beginnings will be introduced by Kathy High, Artist-in-Residence ETC 1984-88, 2003-08, Associate Professor of Video and New Media at the Department of the Arts at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY., and Founder and editor of FELIX: A JOURNAL OF MEDIA ARTS AND COMMUNICATION, media arts publication. She is currently at work on the publication “TOOLS: Video Machines and Media Arts Histories” with co-editors Sherry Miller Hocking (ETC) and Mona Jimenez (NYU, Moving Image Arching and Preservation Program). The basis of this project comes out of the archives of the Experimental Television Center.

Rebecca Cleman from Electronic Arts Intermix will present additional works of the selected artists created in the same time period from the EAI collection.

The screening will be followed by a small reception.
