The National Park Service’s Harpers Ferry Center’s (HFC) Audiovisual (AV) Arts group offers a voice and a vision for the service to inform and inspire the public. The AV programs range from large-format, surround-sound films to silent exhibit videos; from oral histories to multichannel soundscapes; from touch-screen interactive programs to expanded websites.
In addition, the AV Equipment Services branch designs, installs, and maintains audiovisual systems in theaters and as components of museum exhibits throughout the parks. The branch also works with the audiovisual depot system to maintain standard equipment with user-friendly replacements that keep audiovisual programs in the National Parks up and running.
HFC uses its website to inform potential users of the range of AV services offered by the center including cost estimates, contract specifications, scopes of work, treatment development, production planning, research, scriptwriting and review, location filming, video editing, electronic graphics production and web development.
For using the Internet to inform government and museum producers of what it has to offer, HFC’s Audiovisual Arts group is Government Video’s Website of the Week.
