Measure Twice, Scan Once: Digitizing MiniDV and VHS

February 24th 2016 @ 9:00am to @ 10:30am
Scholars' Commons Digitization Lab (Wells E158)
Herman B Wells Library
Bloomington, IN 47405

Don’t let your bulky videos waste space and waste away! This workshop is an introduction to digitizing MiniDV tapes and VHS tapes to archival specifications. We will be discussing how to care for VHS and MiniDV tapes, how to salvage them from sub-optimal storage conditions like sitting on shelves or tossed into drawers collecting dust, how to scan them according to archival standards, and how to save them so they will be useful into a future where VCRs are a rarity.

 

Register for this workshop.
