First Person Arts

First Person Arts The archivist of this center city non-profit Arts organization approached Under Design with a cardboard box full of assorted media that all needed to be digitized - a surprising amount of Minidiscs, a stack of Video-DVD's, as well as some ancient video tapes. We delivered full-resolution audio files, and compressed video files on dual redundant external USB drives for quick and simple integration into their own digital library, and possible web publication.

Peter Pan Records

Peter Pan Music This family-owned and operated record label was looking to take decades of classic vinyl releases (many with long-lost masters) and convert them to digital formats for eventual online resale, rekindling fans memories with 40-50 year old childhood tunes brought back from the vinyl prisons. Our high-quality conversion service fulfilled their needs, with digital new cleaned masters being delivered chock full of ID3 tags, ready to be re-compressed to their final form by third-party distributors.
