In addition to documentary archives, many institutions and organisations also have a large archive of audiovisual material such as films, LPs, CDs and cassette tapes. Part of the trend towards switching from analogue to digital involves digitizing these as well.

The digitalization of archives


Before we start the digitization process, we inventory the collection. We discuss the wishes and requirements in detail. We involve our specialists in the process, all of whom provide their input based on their respective disciplines.

2Project plan

After making inventory, we draw up a project plan tailored to the project at hand. Each project is different and so is every project plan. This will be done in consultation with the client.


After the approval of both parties, we will start digitizing. GMS supervises the digitization by doing either a random check or a 1:1 check. GMS has developed an integrated checking procedure to prevent the occurrence of digitization errors.


The digitized files will be edited and incorporated in a report according to the wishes and requirements of the client. The source materials will be returned on the agreed-upon date together with the digitized files.

Digitise audiovisual material

Audiovisual archives are under heavy pressure. It is expected that various audio and video supports will no longer be usable within 10 to 15 years. Now is the time to have your audiovisual archive digitized. These collections offer a special view of the past.
