Type of Date and Dates Different Date Sources: Video image (opening and/or closing credits) Disc label Container Accompanying material Different Bibliographic “Events”: Original production Release as motion picture Release as an earlier video format Release as a videodisc Copyrights of design or accompanying material
Type of Date and Dates Dates from the chief source (video image itself, cassette label, DVD label) are important, but other factors must be considered: U-matic cassettes: 1971 Beta cassettes: May 1975 VHS cassettes: September 1977 CAV laser optical discs: 1978 CLV laser optical discs: 1978 CED video discs: 1981 DVD discs: introduced March 1997 in U.S. (late 1996 in Japan) Dates for videos earlier than those obviously cannot be considered “publication” dates A later date from a unifying element such as container may be more important Such a later date may be used to infer a date of publication Account for other important dates in notes
Type of Date and Dates Relatively unadorned releases of the original motion picture: Type of Date/Publication Status (008/06, DtSt): p Date 1 (008/07-10): publication date of the DVD-Video Date 2 (008/11-14): date of the original theatrical release DVD-Video releases with substantial new or extra material: Type of Date/Publication Status (008/06, DtSt): s Date 1 (008/07-10): publication date of the DVD-Video Date 2 (008/11-14): blank Such substantial new or extra material might include: documentary material (“making-of”, interviews, biographies, etc.) multiple versions or cuts (director’s cut, alternate endings, restored scenes, both widescreen and pan-and-scan on same disc) Use judgment about what and how much new material qualifies as substantial Always include a note about date of original release in either case 500 Originally released as a motion picture in 1999.
Type of Date and Dates Release of a work with identical content in a different medium (for instance a film released on video) is not considered a “re-release” 008/06 (Type of Date/Publication Status: DtSt) Use Date Type “p” rather than “r”
538 Field 538: System Details Note Videorecording system (DVD, Blu-ray disc, etc.) Color broadcast system Region Aspect ratio Sound characteristics 538 DVD; PAL; Region 4; widescreen version (16:9); Dolby digital 5.1 surround sound or stereo. surround sound.
538 Field: Color Broadcast System NTSC (National Television Systems Committee) Used in US, Canada, Mexico, Japan, a few other places 525 horizontal lines PAL (Phase Alternation Line) Used in most of Western Europe (except France); China; India; Australia; New Zealand; parts of Africa, Asia, and South America Developed in Germany 625 horizontal lines SECAM (Séquential Couleur à Mémoire) Used in France, Russia, Eastern Europe, Francophone Africa, Middle East Developed in France 625 horizontal lines ATSC (Advanced Television Systems Committee) Used in U.S., Mexico, Canada, South Korea, various other places Digital format replaced NTSC on 2009 June 12 Supports various image sizes
538 Field: Region Information Regional restrictions indicated by code number superimposed on globe 0. All-region or multi-region 1. U.S., Canada, U.S. Territories 2. Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Middle East (including Egypt) 3. Southeast Asia and East Asia (including Hong Kong) 4. Australia, New Zealand, Pacific Islands, Central America, Mexico, South America, and the Caribbean 5. Eastern Europe (Former Soviet Union), Indian subcontinent, Africa, North Korea, and Mongolia 6. China 7. Reserved 8. Special international venues (airplanes, cruise ships, etc.)
538 Field: Aspect Ratio Aspect Ratio Horizontal Width of Image: Vertical Height of Image Often expressed as XX:1 or as XX:XX
538 Field: Aspect Ratio Identifying Letterboxed Versions Aspect ratio 1.5:1 and larger (commonly 1.66:1, 1.78:1, 1.85:1) Also called “Wide screen” or “Widescreen” Identifying “Standard” Versions Aspect ratio smaller than 1.5:1 (commonly 1.33:1, sometimes expressed as 4:3) Also called “Pan and Scan” or “Full screen” “Formatted to fit your TV screen”
538 Field: Aspect Ratio Options for aspect ratio: Separate 500 note 500 Aspect ratio 1.33:1; formatted from the original version to fit the television screen. Combine aspect ratio details with 538 System requirements note 538 DVD; NTSC; Region 1; widescreen (2.4:1) presentation; Dolby digital 5.1 surround. Presented as edition statement 250 Pan and scan ed. 250 Widescreen version.
Captioning, Subtitling, Audio Enhancement Captions traditionally: Were accessible only with special equipment; with DVDs, it’s now usually just another menu choice Were intended for those unable to hear audio; now also commonly used in noisy places such as bars and restaurants Included non-textual data: identification of speakers, indications of laughter, applause, nonverbal sounds, sound effects Tended toward verbatim transcription; often using rolling text bars, non-proportional fonts against black background, usually the same language as that being spoken
Captioning, Subtitling, Audio Enhancement Subtitles traditionally: Were accessible without special equipment; with DVDs, they are now usually just another menu choice Were intended for those who can hear audio Do not include non-textual data Tend toward a condensed essence of text; not usually a word-for-word translation
Captioning, Subtitling, Audio Enhancement SDH: “Subtitles for the Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing” Combines features of traditional captions and traditional subtitles: Usually in proportional fonts and displayed (without black bars) in a fashion similar to traditional subtitles Hides less of the video image than captioning did with the black bars Includes non-textual cues and identification of speakers 546 Subtitles for the deaf and hard of hearing (SDH).
Captioning, Subtitling, Audio Enhancement Audio Enhancement: Audio description of videos for the visually impaired Scenery Action Costumes Gestures Other visual elements Voiceovers that do not interfere with existing dialog 546 Audio-described.
Captioning, Subtitling, Audio Enhancement Publishers often provide: Data chart/grid on back of container Option menu when disc begins 008/35-37: eng eng ǂ a fre ǂ j eng ǂ j fre ǂ h eng 546 In English, with dubbed French, and optional subtitles in English or French.
Statements of Responsibility For moving images, various types of statements of responsibility are commonly distributed over at least three fields: 245 Subfield $c (Statement of responsibility, etc.) 508 (Creation/Production Credits Note) 511 (Participant or Performer Note) Use of 511 for “participants, players, narrators, presenters, or performers” fairly straightforward Generally, a film’s “cast”
Statements of Responsibility Field 245 Subfield $c Record those with “some degree of overall responsibility” Producers Directors Writers
Statements of Responsibility Don’t agonize over making exceptions for inclusion in 245 subfield $c, especially when the responsibility is important in relation to the content of the work Performer starring in a performance video, despite responsibility being limited to performance Composer in a music video Choreographer in a video of choreography Chief animator for animated film
Statements of Responsibility Those responsible for only one segment or aspect of the work go in field 508: Photographers Cinematographers Animators Artists, illustrators Film editors Music/composers Consultants, advisers
Statements of Responsibility: Relation to Added Entries Follow LCRI 21.29D “Make added entries for all openly named persons or corporate bodies who have contributed to the creation of the item” (producers, directors, writers), except: Don’t make added entries for persons if there is a production company with an added entry, unless person’s contributions are significant If a person is the main entry, don’t trace other persons unless their contributions are known to be significant
Statements of Responsibility: Relation to Added Entries “Make added entry headings for all corporate bodies named in the publication, distribution, etc. area” “Make added entries for all featured players, performers, and narrators,” except: If main entry is for a performing group, don’t trace individuals in the group unless the name appears in conjunction with, preceding, or following the group name If there are many players, trace only the most prominent Make added entries for interviewers, interviewees, lecturers, etc. who are not the main entry

Genre/Form Headings Field 655 contains terms from standard lists that indicate the genre and/or form of the materials being described Form A characteristic of works with a particular format and/or purpose Documentary films sh Made-for-TV movies sh Short films sh Genre A category of works characterized by recognizable conventions (themes, plot formulas, character- types, settings, situations) Disaster films sh Film noir sh Science fiction films sh
Genre/Form Headings LC’s Moving Image Materials: Genre Terms (MIM) by Martha M.

Streaming Media Internet data transfer technique that allows the user immediately to hear audio files, and to hear and see video files, without lengthy download times before playback. The host or source "streams" small packets of information over the Internet to the user, who can access the content as it is received. Those temporary files are gone once the playback is complete.
Streaming Media: Not Streaming media will never be on a tangible medium (such as disc, cassette, etc.). To distinguish different types of remotely-accessed resources, non-streaming files are generally those downloaded from the Internet to reside on a local hard drive. Some characteristics: File is downloaded in its entirety Playback cannot begin until complete file is downloaded to local system Playback is not in “real time” Playback does not require a persistent connection to a remote server User has access to downloaded content after its initial playback User will often have ability to manipulate or edit content, “burn” it onto a tangible medium, etc.
Streaming Media: History Streaming technology developed during the mid-1990s but initially had extremely limited availability. RealPlayer (RealAudio Player) introduced in April 1995 supported streaming media Predecessor of Windows Media Player first supported streaming in May 1996 Apple’s QuickTime 4.0, released in June 1999, was the first version to support streaming technology iTunes player, released in January 2001, supported streaming For most practical purposes, what we know today as streaming media became available to the general market in 1999 It would be extremely rare for any streaming audio file or streaming video file to have a publication date earlier than 1999
