Media Transfer / Edit /Archive
Over the years, image, audio, and video media have been preserved in many formats, from silver and vinyl, to analog, and to numerous digital formats. For reasons of commerce, research, or pleasure, it can be desirable to consolidate these media into one consistent, edited, organized, and viewable archived file.
- Sloppypilot can perform most of the necessary file transfers and edits, and will sub-contract particularly troublesome technologies to specialists. Media can be prepared and distributed as any web delivery format, podcast, CD, or DVD.
Sloppypilot is available for temporary project participation for writing, editing, & simple-styled explanations of complex ideas.
