E104 Sound Transfer / Helpdesk supports a variety of audio and video formats, both analog and digital, for transfer or digital conversion.
Audio files may be created from CD, MiniDisc, DAT, Cassette, 33/45 rpm phonographic records, 16/35mm magnetic film, and 1/4” tape (Nagra, 1/2 track, and 1/4 track) for use in Pro Tools, or other digital audio workstations. Video may be captured from Laser Disc, Digital BetaCam, BetaCam SP, DVCAM, 3/4” (“U-matic”), VHS, and HDV tapes.
Although all of these formats are currently available in E104 Sound Transfer / Helpdesk, they are not guaranteed. These decks are no longer manufactured and servicing them may no longer be possible.
Media for transfer may be delivered to E104 Sound Transfer / Helpdesk Room during Helpdesk hours. A Transfer Work Order must be filled out before a Sound Student Technician can begin the transfer. Be as specific as possible about source and destination transfer formats in order to ensure proper conversion for synchronization or other project- specific needs. When transferring between formats, be sure to bring blank media along with the master material. Label everything. Depending on the time of year, transfers can take between 2-3 workdays. The fee for transfers is $6/hour with a $2 minimum. Transferred files can be delivered to a hard / thumb drive or to your FVCentral Depositbox after payment is made.
