VIAA awards Gecko its 6,800 cassettes digitization project

We are pleased to announce the imminent start-up of the VIAA-led audio cassettes digitization project.

announcer-316587_1280This batch, one of the two offered by VIAA (one audio and one video) consists of media collected from 28 content partners, with a total of almost 6,800 audio cassettes, to be processed in our facilities for one year.

Our team, trained and experienced in the handling, transport and processing of unique documents are key assets that ensure proper organization of the project.

The parallelized digitization chain linked to our internally-developed database control and management software, combined with our capacity to process more than 20,000 cassettes a year, will also enable us to efficiently meet the technical requirements of the project, as soon as practicable.
