Highlight On: Creation Station
The Creation Station is an array of machines that can be used to preserve family memories that are on VHS tapes, cassette tapes, and vinyl album records.
The iCube has VHS to DVD transferring technology. This will allow archiving of your home movies from VHS tape to DVD. This recorder only copies onto DVD-R (Minus R DVD). It will not copy onto a DVD+R DVD. The iCube doesn't supply DVD's, so please make sure you bring the proper DVD.
iCube also has the technology available to digitize cassette tapes and vinyl LP's. This converter will record and you will be prompted to fill in the Artist, Album Name and Track Titles if applicable. You can then burn your tracks on to CD, flash drive, or upload them to a cloud storage.
The process converts in real time. If you have a 45 minute cassette tape it will take 45 minutes to transfer. When saving the project allow some extra time as well.
The Creation Station is a "GREEN" level usage. Green meaning it can be used without supervision for the
ourself projects. Instructions are located by the Creation Station.
Mondays, 3:30-5:30pm & 6-8:30pm
Fridays/Saturdays (Alternating), 10am-12pm & 2-5:30pm
Additional staff hours may be available. Please call the Library to inquire for each week.
