Opening May 7, 2018!
Thanks to a generous bequest from Northbook resident Howard Peltz, the Collaboratory houses a set of two new rooms that form the Peltz Digital Suite: the Peltz Digitization Room and the Peltz Digital Media Lab.
The Digitization Room allows you to turn your old analog media into digital. Bring in your vinyl, cassettes, VHS tapes, photos, slides, film, Super 8mm or 8mm film and create a digital copy.
Use of these rooms is first come, first served, and you must be present to monitor your project at all times. Speak to staff in the Collaboratory when you arrive, and they can sign you into a room.
- Tobin Telecine for Super 8mm and 8mm film
- Sony dual cassette deck
- Audio Technica AT-LP120BK-USB Direct-Drive Professional Turntable
- Funai VHS/DVD for use with Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus
- Epson Perfection V600 Photo Scanner for photos, film, slides and documents
Prefer to convert your VHS to DVD at home? You can check out a DVD/VCR recorder to take home.
