Vienna, Austria - Nov 2, 2010 - Brussels-based Memnon Archiving Services S.A. has digitized one-half million audio recordings relying on NOA systems. Memnon customers include Danish Radio, Bibliotheque nationale de France (BnF), the British Library, Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT) and the European Parliament.

NOA systems support multiple Memnon projects, including migration of 250,000 digital audio tapes for Danish Radio and 350,000 CDs for BnF. Memnon has elected to rely on NOA over competing systems because NOA's Job Database is capable of managing 60 stereo channels in a single central workflow system.

At Memnon, NOA MediaLector ingest tools perform quality controlled mass migration of DATs and CDs under control of the NOA Job Database workflow system. NOA MediaLector software running on the N6073 host is capable of transferring eight stereo sources in parallel with up to 24-bit, 44.1kHz/48kHz quality. Additionally, MediaLector constantly monitors the status of the DAT drives' error correction stages and annotates the quality-relevant status data synchronously to the audio stream with Sony PCM 7040 and NOA-adapted R500 DAT. The result is a documented audio transfer with a digitization proof stamp written to the database along with the audio material.
