Our Video Clips

In case you are not familiar with streaming audio and video, it provides audio and video by buffering the data being streamed from the server before playback.  The media can be encoded using several templates to provide optimal playback quality based on bandwidth. 

The video quality is insufficient to make out the details of transparencies. It is therefore recommended that you view the images of the scanned transparencies in your browser in parallel to the streaming audio/video transmission. As an alternative, you can also print them out beforehand using Adobe Acrobat Reader.
