Technical Information

Digital collection objects

Digital images

Using a scanner or a digital camera, high-resolution 300 dpi digital image files are created for each SA Memory object. These preservation quality digital images record the appearance and condition of the original item; the scans or photographs are not enhanced or manipulated.

For presentation on the website, low-resolution files at 72 dpi are created for 'thumbnail', 'detail' and 'enlarge' views. These low-resolution images available on SA Memory are suitable for immediate printing or downloading to provide good quality copies for study, research and creative activities.

High-resolution images are available for personal and professional use: see Permission to publish and Copying services.

Hardware

Any PC or Macintosh hardware should support this website, although it will run better with a faster computer.

Similarly, this website will load more quickly with a fast modem or other internet connection. However, it is designed so that nearly all pages will load within 20 seconds over a 56k connection.

Browsers

SA Memory is designed to work with a wide range of current browsers and will work best with Internet Explorer version 5.0 or above.

Cookies are used to customise your visit to SA Memory: they enable the website to provide personalised features like compiling My SA Memory selections, retrieving these selections when visiting the website at a later date, and Search History. You may clear images from your My SA Memory selections or your Search History at any time.

Where you voluntarily provide personal information (for example, through online forms), SA Memory will only use that information for the specific purpose stated. SA Memory will keep any such information secure and will not disclose it to any third parties.  View our Privacy statement here.

Musical scores - Sibelius Scorch

Some SA Music objects have digital scores available.

If you cannot view/listen to these scores go to the Sibelius website (http://www.sibelius.com/products/scorch/index.html) to download the Scorch plug in.

Sound and video - Quicktime

The Quicktime plug-in is required to play sound or video clips. The quality will vary depending on the connection speed to the internet, and does not necessarily reflect the quality of the original recordings. Although a 28k modem will play, a 56k modem or faster connection is recommended.
