Transcript

  • 1. Digitising the Oral History and Radio Programmes
  • 2. The Reel to Reel Players
  • 3. The Laptops
  • 4. The Analogue/Digital Converters
  • 5. The Set Up
  • 6. Keeping it all clean
  • 7. Facts and Figures
    • Around 120 oral history interviews were digitised and put on My Leicestershire
    • Around 100 radio programmes were digitised and put on My Leicestershire
    • They were digitised at 48Khz 24bit rather than CD standard of 44.1Khz 16bit
    • They were then resampled to 64kbps .wma files for the website
  • 8. Lessons learnt
    • This takes a long time! Each interview is comprised of one or more tapes which hold 15 minutes per side (a few hold 30 minutes)
    • The longest interviews covered up to 16 sides of tape i.e. four hours or more
    • Adding metadata and ‘batch processing’ the files can also take quite a bit of time
    • The most I managed to get through in one day, using two machines, was around 40 sides of tape
    • My (limited) experience with community groups is that this can prove to be too much work
