Many projects are at 96/24, some are multitrack. I'm not sure if that
hurts/helps your argument. To put this in perspective, multiple
archives in North America even archive spoken-word cassettes at
96/24. They claim IASA TC-04 requires this, but a careful reading of
TC-04 does not support that.
I am not in favor of hard drives on the shelf by any means. I'm not
sure who is in this discussion. BUT when I say "hard drive" I mean a
kit in an enclosure, its own power supply, and a USB/FW interface
with eSATA coming soon.
My drives all spin and are checked. I have yet to implement MD5, but
will on the next project.
The last bit of this discussion has centred around institutional
repositories of various natures and "other cost saving methods".
What you state is true for EMI, but I do not see archives with
smaller digitization projects investing in any technology like NAS
RAIDs, LTO, or whatever and migrating them. That's my concern--the
migration in the hands of the smaller archive. SOME of the people
with content don't have the in-house capability of moving forward
without some type of outside help IMHO. That is why I am pushing for
partnering where the partner worries about the SAN RAID, the LTO or
whatever--and the archive/client on the system is a small piece of
the overall collection.
