RTÉ (Ireland’s National Broadcaster) Wants to Digitally Archive 20,000 Tapes of its Radio Programmes Between 1988 and 2008
RTÉ is seeking to award a contract to digitise and archive over 20,000 audio tapes created over a 20-year span.
It said that these recordings were created between 1988 and 2008, and contain a mixture of studio and field recordings that were originally produced for radio programming.
The tapes RTÉ has on file, however, do vary in quality and duration.
They want the successful contractor to collect the tapes that will be bar-coded and boxed in RTÉ in Donnybrook.
