FrameLector lets institution efficiently manage video repertoire
The Swiss National Sound Archives, Fonoteca Nazionale Svizzera (Fonoteca) is safeguarding the country’s audio heritage with the help of AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA GmbH.
Headquartered in Lugano, the organization which collects and catalogs audio documents relating to Swiss history and culture, has replaced its older NOA N6000 audio ingest systems with two N7000C compact units featuring digital de-emphasis curve of historical audio files. It has also purchased the NOA FrameLector dual-stream video ingest software, featuring transfer quality control for SD-video legacy sources.
This move is a major step for Fonoteca (the first Swiss company to employ the NOA FrameLector) and means the institution, which has traditionally worked with a pure audio archive, now has the capacity to efficiently manage its video repertoire.
“Our partnership goes back some 14 years, and we are delighted that NOA has devised a practical video solution as well as a comprehensive way to annotate digital emphasis curves in audio files,” said Stefano Cavaglieri, CTO and CIO for Fonoteca.
The Fonoteca’s recently installed NOA technology integrates with its complete MAM system, including existing NOA MediaButler transcoding processors and DB Scripters.
“We are happy that Fonoteca in Lugano, which also has a large video collection, has chosen FrameLector as part of its solution for legacy video ingest material,” said Jean-Christophe Kummer, managing partner of NOA. This will certainly have an optimal effect on the organization’s workflow and maximizes its archiving possibilities.”
Fonoteca was created in 1987 as a foundation under private law. In January 2016 the foundation was dissolved and the Phonotheque was integrated into the Federal Office of Culture as Swiss National Sound Archives Section of the Swiss National Library. The Swiss National Sound Archives collects and catalogs audio documents that have a relationship with Swiss history and culture.
