Paul R. Beck
As the Museum's curator and archivist Paul R. Beck is a driving force for the MBT as well as a dedicated and well-informed technology collector of many years. Paul worked 10 years in broadcast television, 8 years in corporate television, and another 25 years in the higher education communication & broadcast community. Paul brings a broad and detailed perspective of technology history to the museum and its work that stems from his many years as an accomplished technologist in the industry.
Paul has also pioneered several novel methods and techniques for the handling, recovery and re-mastering of old small-format videotapes and for transferring early video programs to modern digital formats. He has also developed an optical wet-gate transfer process for 8mm, Super 8mm and 16mm films.
Beck also serves as Film & Video Archivist for the New Haven Railroad Historical and Technical Association, producing many new releases that feature the images and history of a bygone era.
