WE HAVE BEEN PRESERVING HISTORICAL SPEECHES FROM THE LATE SIR STIRLING MOSS! and many other important historical footage and audio of historical and academic value.
It takes between 10-15 years for audio and video content to start the degradation and become format obsolete. Many libraries, archives and museums currently hold enormous time based media. Consider environmental issues surrounding storage and this becomes a major issue. Quite frightening when the historical content could be lost forever.
It doesn't have to be though. Our team are here to support.
Audio and video materials of significant cultural and historical value can sometimes fall under the hands of people who lack specialised training. At Oxford Digitisation Centre we understand the challenges of preserving time based media. We support collections from several units to the 1000's expertly handling the contents and converting them to formats suitable for archiving and online viewing.
TIME IS RUNNING OUT!
We understand the costs of preservation can be high but at our studio we support clients with cost effective solutions to help ensure these collections are not put off to another time. It must be noted that time is running out and working with us we can support all your digitisation needs.
WALTER HAYES CBE
Examples of our works include Walter Hayes CBE of whom is well known for being appointed Chairman of Aston Martin which he saved from extinction through conceiving and taking into production the DB7.
We were responsible for the audio restoration of many historical speeches from Sir Jackie Stewart, Sir Stirling Moss, The Rt. Hon. Peter Brooke CH MP and Richard Hayes himself who contacted us to restore the works.
You will find our restorations on https://walterhayes.co.uk.
Definitely worth a good read and listen!
Other examples include:
- · Pitt Rivers Museum converting their motion and cine film of indigenous cultures.
- · Early radio broadcast tapes.
- · Live recordings of musical performances, speeches and lectures.
- · Unique recordings of historical content
- · Recordings on fragile carriers
We believe strongly that now is the time to look into your collections and start the process of digitising your historical and even personal archives. Our services also include photographic and film scanning, duplication and printing.
