The Castle’s Lord

Born in 1963 in Switzerland, and having graduated in mathematics and computer science, Reto Kromer became involved in audio-visual conservation and restoration as early as 1986. From 1998 to 2003 he was head of preservation at the Swiss Film Archive, in charge of cataloguing, conservation and restoration of the film collection. Since 2004 he has been running his own preservation companies reto.ch and AV Preservation by reto.ch, providing comprehensive services that encompass the whole range of moving image preservation. He is currently a lecturer at the University of Lausanne, the Bern University of Applied Sciences and the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. His courses cover the conservation and restoration not only of audio-visual content but also audio-visual carriers, usually with a focus on movie picture film and technical issues. He is also author of articles for renown journals, actively engaged in the leading national and international professional bodies, and on AMIA’s Board of Directors.


I’m inventing the YUV color separation film print for those preserving video tape to film.
Consists on a 35 mm print with two 16 mm prints.
