Is your organization facing a collection of aging a/v formats that you wish to digitize for preservation or access, and you’re not sure how to proceed? UWM Archives A/V Project Archivist Charlies Hosale and WHS Audio Archivist Dana Gerber-Margie share their respective experiences with vendor based and in-house digitization of audio and visual materials such as VHS, 35mm film, audiocassettes, and vinyl. Dana will discuss the innovative in-house digitization initiatives at the Wisconsin Historical Society. Charles will present UWM’s quality control workflow for A/V materials that utilizes open source programs, such as Sonic Visualizer, QCTools, MediaInfo, and Fixity to ensure the fidelity of digitized records. Attendees will leave with an introduction to current A/V digitization and quality control topics and techniques, practical understanding of and exposure to relevant software and resources, an implementable A/V digitization workflow designed for use in small and middle-sized cultural heritage institutions, and the feeling that they too can tackle A/V materials without being format and digitization experts.
