Audio & Visual Group

Audio is the conversion of analogue sound from vinyl records and cassette tapes, into digital format using software installed on the club's computers. The software is also used to remove any clicks or background hiss, which is usually associated with vinyls and cassettes. The sounds, usually music, is converted to MP3 and copied to a CD or DVD.

The second interest of the group is making slideshows and home movies, using both still photographs and videos. This usually involves scanning, and quite often rejuvenating old photos and slides by removing blemishes and spots. Digitised music from old records and cassettes can be added to slideshows along with other music and narration. The finished slideshows and home movies are copied to a VCD or DVD where they can beshown on a normal TV using a standard DVD player.
