Audio and visual record digitizer in Varaamo
Pekuri Library has the device for digitizing cassette tapes and vinyl records onto a CD-R or CD-RW disc. Discs are sold in the library.
Maikkula Library has the device for digitizing film and VHS cassettes. Digitizing film takes longer due to the film being shot frame by frame. The digitization of a 3.5-minute film takes approximately 30 minutes. The end result is an mp4 file in HD-quality. Digitization of VHS cassettes occurs in real time, i.e. the tape has to be played through, and the video is recorded on CD-R or CD-RW. Discs are sold in the library.
You can reserve equipment via Varaamo or from the library customer service.
