TCMediaNow was established in 2009 by Tom Oszman initially through colletions of video tapes would otherwise have been discarded video tapes of news and commercial footage. The tapes and film which many felt was not viewable or funcitonal in the digital age was found to contain hours of relevant local historical memories, stories, and vintage commercials from places, products, and technology of the past. From the Twins World Series Victory Parade, fearsome tornadoes, commercials for Dayton's and Donaldson's, highlights and low lights of the video age are captured for generations to come through the digitization process. Contributing to TCMediaNow provides continued sustainability to maintain and purchase vintage video and film equipment, and to expand the reach and velocity in which footage is able to be brought back to the public. Footage found and acquired by TCMediaNow has been used in University Research, Documentary Film, local education, and all four local commercial network affiliates.
