Groninger AudioVisual Archives (GAVA) preserves audiovisual material as a historical source for reference or for use in creative productions. The extensive collection contains many different media formats such as VCR, U-matic, Betamax, VHS, Video 2000, and audio cassette tapes.
To increase storage capacity, the existing static racks were transformed into mobile shelving by mounting them on Compactus® Dynamic Pro XTR carriages. This maximised the storage capacity for GAVA. To provide the best protection for the historic media collection, the system includes ventilation control and an energy saving Stand-by mode. Thanks to the ‘Soft start – Soft stop’ system, all media remains safely in place.
