If you are interested in digitising audio or video recordings and, or would like to know how to restore/remaster deteriorating audio or video recordings then you may be interested in three of our courses which we are running back to back in early May (you can book courses individually if you wish)
Digital Media Restoration – 11th May
Analogue media deteriorates at an alarming rate and few digitisation projects can hope to retrieve great signals from aged collections. In order to archive maximum usefulness some basic digital remastering is often required. Fortunately, today's digital tools mean we can easily remove unwanted 'defects' whether hisses and scratches from shellac discs or the distorted colours of old videotapes
N.B. This course covers digital restoration of audio-visual resources only. It does not cover restoration of still images
Digitising Analogue Video Recordings – 12th May
This workshop will investigate the challenges associated with the preservation of videotapes. Through practical exercises, you will look at how digitising materials to archival standards can both safeguard and help develop a collection. You will also look at the challenge of creating a sustainable digital collection. Quality assurance procedures and best practice will be referred to throughout.
Digitising Analogue Audio – 13th May
To meet the skills required by libraries, archives and institutions to digitise their existing analogue collections, this course aims to provide a complete introduction to the theory and practicalities of successfully digitising analogue audio resources. The workshop will provide hands-on tuition alongside presenting theoretical knowledge with group discussions of topics surrounding the digital lifecycle, in a digitisation project based context.
