Ross Garrett, Team Leader Audio Services at the NFSA, shares the good news about recent upgrades to our audio services studios.
The NFSA recently upgraded its audio services studios. We can now do more, in less time.
Audio Services is the area where we preserve and restore all historic formats – from the oldest, such as wax cylinders and wire recordings, to more recent formats like analogue tape and optical and magnetic film. If it’s audio, we can do it!
There are seven studios centred around a server room, which digitises audio in real time. For more than ten years, we have maintained a studio environment that allowed us to produce flexible analogue and digital recording to a variety of external sources, previously by recording to DAT and CD and later to Studio workstation computers.
