Fonoteca Upkeeps Heritage With NOA

FrameLector efficiently manage video repertoire

The Swiss National Sound Archives, Fonoteca Nazionale Svizzera (Fonoteca) has replaced its older NOA N6000 audio ingest systems with two N7000C compact units featuring digital de-emphasis curve of historical audio files. It has also purchased the NOA FrameLector dual-stream video ingest software, featuring transfer quality control for SD-video legacy sources.

Fonoteca is safeguarding the country’s audio heritage with the help of AV digitizing and archiving specialist NOA GmbH. Lugano`s organization collects and catalogs audio documents relating to Swiss history and culture.

The institution, which has traditionally worked with a pure audio archive, now has the capacity to efficiently manage its video repertoire.

The Fonoteca’s recently installed NOA technology integrates with its complete MAM system, including existing NOA MediaButler transcoding processors and DB Scripters.

Fonoteca was created in 1987 as a foundation under private law. In January 2016 the foundation was dissolved and the Phonotheque was integrated into the Federal Office of Culture as Swiss National Sound Archives Section of the Swiss National Library. The Swiss National Sound Archives collects and catalogs audio documents that have a relationship with Swiss history and culture.
