The TAPE project has issued an overview of audio and video carriers
by Dietrich Schuller of the Phonogrammarchiv, Austrian Academy of
Sciences. The text systematically describes recording principles,
storage and handling, maintenance of equipment, format and equipment
obsolescence, for each type of carrier, and includes a list of
recommended reading. It provides a solid, non-technical introduction
for all those professionally managing sound and video collections.

The overview is a full text version of presentations used in TAPE
workshops by Dietrich Schuller and Albrecht Haefner. It is available


The TAPE project, Training for Audiovisual Preservation in Europe,

2000-programme of the EU.
