DIGITISATION AT 301
Libraries, archives and cultural institutions are in a race against time to digitise their precious audio collections before the media of the 20th century becomes unplayable, and their content is lost forever.
Your organisation’s archives are invaluable. Digitising them needs to be entrusted to professionals who understand and respect their value, and who have the experience, skills and equipment to render them into a digital audio file format which will last for generations.
- Materials logging and secure, climate controlled storage
- Assessment of material. Due to age or damage, the materials may require extra treatment or unusual transfer methods to ensure a safe and high quality capture.
- Precision playback of the material and capture to our DAW’s
- File export
- Daily backup of all captured material
Many tapes suffer from “Sticky Shed Syndrome”, where a tape attracts moisture from the air and as a result starts to become sticky and fall apart – rendering the tape destroyed when played back on a tape machine. Tape baking draws out the moisture in the tape, allowing it to be safely played back. We have this process applied to most of the analogue audio tapes we digitise.
