    • Archiving Digital Audio Files Victoria Sloyan futureArch Project Graduate Library Trainee Scheme Project Showcase 7 th July 2010
    • Aims
      • Select a container format
      • Determine best way to capture audio
      • Decide how to deliver audio to users
    • Types of format
      • Uncompressed: Sound and silence are encoded at the same number of bits/second
      • Lossless: Use fewer bits/second to encode silence. Sound data is an exact replica, but the file size is reduced
      • Lossy: Entire file is compressed. The result is very similar, but not identical to the pre-compressed data. File size is significantly reduced
    • Which file format?
      • Uncompressed
      • Open source
      • Standardised
      • Recommended by Library of Congress and British Library
