What is MediaLector?
MediaLector is NOA’s ingest tool for quality-controlled mass migration of DATs and MiniDiscs from one to eight parallel stations.
Running on the N6073 host workstation, it is capable of transferring up to eight stereo sources in parallel at 44.1-48 kHz resolution, extracting the audio information, and annotating relevant subcode while scanning the signal using NOA’s algorithmic detection. MediaLector also constantly monitors the status of error-correction stages in the DAT drives and annotates the quality-relevant data synchronously to the audio stream with Sony DAT machines. The result is a 100% documented audio transfer with a digitization proof-stamp written to the database along with the audio material.
