This is a fun question. Off the top of my head and in no particular order, I would say leading (US) academic institutions are: Stanford, Columbia, MIT, University of Virginia, and UNC.
University of Michigan (especially the Bentley), Emory, UIUC, Maryland, and so many others are also notable, it's hard to pick a top five.
A little promotion of my own institution: Indiana University is pretty trailblazing in terms of A/V preservation - with our MDPI project we'll have 6.5PB of data very soon and this is leading us to work in the development of repository and storage solutions at scale.

Subject: Re: [NDSA-ALL] Long-term Digital Preservation PlanMake sure you get data that enables you to determine whether an institution is a true peer to your own. A “large” amount of digital holdings can mean anything from 3TB to 40 TB to half a petabyte or more depending on who you talk to. “Access” can mean things as different as a catalog record/finding aid or online delivery of holdings content. Format variety is another consideration factor.These come out of my own experiences looking for peers with which to compare notes.Best,RiccRiccardo Ferrante | Director of Digital Services & IT ArchivistSmithsonian Institution ArchivesPO Box 37012, MRC 507, Washington, DC 20013-7012Explore the Archives’ collections online.The Digital Preservation network is in production and accepting deposits for long term digital preservation. We have 60 member institutions, led by our preservation nodes at AP Trust, Hathi Trust, Chronopolis, The Texas Preservation Node, and the Stanford Digital Repository (www.dpn.org).
