Duplication and Migration
If you don't have the expertise or machinery to access or duplicate the recordings on your older tapes, SPECS BROS can do it for you. SPECS BROS. has the experience needed to optimize your duplication and migration needs. We can migrate virtually any obsolete tape to any modern analog or digital format. Our preservation experts can also advise you on migration paths.
The concept of Access Based Preservation, first coined by SPECS BROS., has an ever-increasing following in the worldwide archival community. As archivists and collectors try to deal with the increasingly complex issues of preserving magnetic recordings, Access Based Preservation is being recognized as the approach with the greatest likelihood of success.
Access Based Preservation asks the archivist to answer these simple questions:
Quite simply, if you can't access the recordings, they have not been preserved! If you have old tapes but no machinery to play them on, you have an access problem that will get worse as time passes.
Obsolescence is a serious problem in the recording industry. Older machines are breaking down or being thrown out. Obsolete equipment is already hard to find in many markets and will become harder to find in the future. Just as serious as the rapidly shrinking supply of older equipment is the shrinking number of trained operators and engineers available who know how to use the old machinery properly.
Once your tapes have been restored to playable condition, you will want your new copies or masters made on well maintained equipment by operators who are experienced with the format. Migration of older tapes to new, modern formats is not simply a matter of pressing a few buttons. Don't wait until the machinery and experience necessary to access your older tapes is no longer available.
We would be happy to discuss the benefits of Access Based Preservation with you. Our duplication and remastering services, tailored to your specific requirements, will help preserve your valuable collections…for this generation and future generations, too!
