Hello Everyone-
I have to transfer about 50 3//4 inch tapes which will end up on DVD, we are planning on donating the tapes to a university or museum after we archive (they are the raw interview footage of hiroshima survivors from the 1980's).
For our own archives we are planning on dumping to dvd and collectively know very little about digital archiving. If any one has any suggestions about file formats, brands of archival media etc.we would gretaly appreciate your advice.
