Welcome to the video library and archives of the Experimental Television Center.
Since its founding in 1969, the Experimental Television Center has served one of North America's preeminent centers for experimental video art. Its residency program allowed over 1500 media artists to use the Center’s Owego studio, unique image processing tools, and video library.
In 2011, Cornell's Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art became the repository for ETC’s collection of over 3000 media artworks on videotape and DVD from the Owego studio. Many of these artworks have been digitized for preservation and access, and all are available upon advanced request to the research community and the public through Cornell University Library's Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections. Users must request digitization of non-digitized tapes in advance of consultation.
For information about the Experimental Television Center, its history, its mission, and its ongoing activities, please see the ETC website.
