Media Digitization

We can convert many types of physical and digital source material into a broad range of industry-standard digital formats.


  • We digitize common film, audio, and video formats, and we have mass-digitization robots for high-volume collections.
  • We can digitize books, paper documents, and photographs, and we have specialized facilities for rare documents, manuscripts, and high-resolution imagery.
  • We are able to ingest digital files online, on hard drives, or from digital media such as LTO tapes, and we can then perform any needed restoration.
  • Quality-control monitoring is performed consistently on all encoding projects to ensure accurate file creation and reproduction.

Cataloging & Metadata

  • USCDR metadata librarians provide expertise with the selection of appropriate metadata schema, standards, and controlled vocabularies.
  • We can import and export associated XML with all files.
  • We are able to provide detailed quality assurance data created during our proprietary file review process.
