Library Science Talk: «VisualAudio: saving the sound of broken records. Saving the audio heritage of a country»

17. Juni 2024 - 17:15 bis 18:15

The Swiss National Sound Archives (or Fonoteca) is based in Lugano and is a section of the Swiss National Library. Since 1987, the Fonoteca has been collecting, cataloguing, digitising and enhancing the audio heritage of Switzerland. Over the years, it has built an ideal infrastructure for the physical and digital preservation of all types of audio carriers and audio documents according to the international standards established by the IASA International Association of Sound and Audiovisual Archives. In parallel, it has developed technologies for reconditioning and restoring old audio carriers in cooperation with national and international institutions. In particular, the Fonoteca has developed a technology called VisualAudio that enables the extraction and saving of the sound of broken records.
