Condition: Video-pool submissions
We welcome submissions of original work*
for inclusion in future presentations
of the Video-pool Archive. Submissions
are 'single channel' videos.** [see
Mini-DV is the preferred
format because normally it would be the
best quality and the most reliable data
source. DVD video is also acceptable

DVD is the best available source. PAL
is preferred, if possible. Tapes and
discs must be clearly marked with your
name and the title. Do
not use sticky labels on discs.
