UNESCO chooses Gecko to finalize the preservation of its audio recordings

Within the framework of a project to safeguard the audio heritage recorded on magnetic tapes, Gecko was selected by UNESCO to finalize the preparation and carry out the mass digitization of difficult magnetic tapes.

The first stage of preparation requires the takeover of work partially carried out by another service provider. Gecko was able to process a large percentage of these magnetic tapes within a few weeks to allow the digitization work in their facilities. The UNESCO thus shows its confidence and confirms the technical quality of Gecko through this rework.

Our recognized expertise in the processing of complex media will also allow us to digitize the most difficult tapes in the near future. An adapted mass-digitization chain will be put in place in the coming weeks to guarantee the project’s completion within the given timeframe.
