It seems to mean we can watch the digitized collection online without going to Lincoln Center. I am sure there's software to prevent videos from being downloaded.

I was poking around this archive recently. You still have to be at the library but now you don't have to request these items from the research library and have them load it on a machine. I plan on checking it out the next time I'm there. Maybe one day they will allow it to stream to private computers but not now. Still, not having to be set up etc...will make watching these more convenient.

Editing to add that there are a few videos available for home viewing but most have a little lock on the video to show that you must be on site to watch. But some great photo collections are up.

Thanks, mussel! I’ve just watched (although only on a small Quicktime screen) a performance I was present in the theater for.
