Making digital copies of audio or video recordings can be a complex operation, but it's the only way to preserve the content of fragile media.
We have a dedicated AV digitisation suite which can produce digital copies of many older media formats. Technical staff are available to carry out work on a cost-recovery basis. Researchers with the prerequisite technical skills are welcome to contact us and discuss direct access to the suite. Digitisation of some formats (2” videotape for example) is better outsourced to external agencies, contact us to discuss.
