    Smile video library/video vault/film vault

    Good morning, I'm here again.

    What are the differences of video library/video vault/film vault? Do they refer to the same thing---a place for safekeeping of film?

    Please check out the following news:

    At a news conference, Los Angeles County fire Chief P. Michael Freeman said the fire began on what's described as the "New York street" set, moved on to the King Kong exhibit and then over to buildings housing a sound stage and video library.
    Various reports say either the video vault or the King Kong building are still burning as plumes of smoke continue to blacken the skies above L.A.
    Firefighters were able to rescue hundreds and hundreds of video canisters. An estimated 40,000 to 50,000 videos and reels were damaged.
    The fire did not affect another film vault, which contains archival footage.

    Thank you!

    A video library would be like an ordinary lending library, or your library at home, with copies of books, or DVDs, or videos.
    Studios keep their original master prints, and negatives, and rare footage - any material considered highly valuable and 'irreplaceable' in vaults, to guard against theft and fire.

    When Gone with the Wind was being shot, from January to September/October, then during the summer months in California, the building with the vault containing the completed footage was played over with hoses to keep the building cool to prevent it building catching fire - double assurance!
