Technology, process and people
Depending the initial carriers may first require a preparation task incluning baking, cleaning or/and ultrasonic cleaning.
Depending the carriers and the size of project, various solutions are proposed.
As a first approach, we can describe the various available solutions as :
- Mass Audio Digitization
- Mass Video Digitization
- Mass Film Digitization
- Stand Alone Audio Digitization Desk
- Stand Alone Video Digitization Desk
- High Quality Scanning
We have all the machines, the processes, the skill and the people to take care of most of the projects, whatever the format and the volume that needs to be managed.
The Digitization tasks are achieved in the premises of our company or at the location of the archive.
It’s obvious that valuable archives are in danger and adding transportation doesn’t help preserving them.
For the same reason, restoration is usually not considered as part of the preservation process but this is sometimes required.
