Vienna, Austria (March 18, 2010)–Paris-based VectraCom has instituted NOA Audio Solutions technology to provide digital migration services for media enterprises with substantial audio archives.
With the NOA equipment installed in January, VectraCom will now be able to digitize and preserve large amounts of audio and video archives for major archive owners. A reason for VectraCom’s selection was that the NOA solution had been pre-certified as meeting the requirements of its agreement with Institut national de l’ audiovisuel (INA).
VectraCom, founded in 1991, specializes in library and archive work. Besides INA, its clients include the CitÈ des Sciences and the BibliothËque nationale de France.
VectraCom’s NOA technology today consists of two NOA Record stations, including A-to-D converters and re-player communication modules, to enable simultaneous digitization of six parallel stereo ingest streams from analog carriers; NOA WaveButler to provide advanced, near real-time audio transcoding; and the NOA Job Database Workflow System.
“Previously, VectraCom had relied primarily on the integration of different tools from the market to digitize analog audio recordings,” said Bruno Burtre, VectraCom director of sales operations. “This was a limited solution for us, however, because it did not enable easy integration of digital media into a managed digital workflow. Having had only positive experience with NOA in my previous position at Sony, I was confident in our decision to implement the company’s technology on behalf of our clients. The NOA Record and Job Database Workflow System are today enabling VectraCom, to do an even better job of supporting our clients’ ability to preserve, retrieve, and repurpose their valuable media assets.”
The NOA Record system is a combined hardware and software solution that enables simultaneous migration of multiple parallel ingest streams. The NOA Job Database Workflow System enables coordinated transcription of ingested data to an existing media asset management (MAM) system.
