Toepassing: 

The NYU ViPIRS is a Microsoft Access database tool, developed for magnetic media, which includes modules for videotape, audiocassettes, and 1/4" reel-to-reel. It is designed for a wide range of users: from audiovisual novices to experts; from small institutions to large. It generates item-level, numerical scores on condition, playback ability and ease of conservation/reformatting based on a series of inspection points (derived from ISO 18933-2006 and AES 49-2005 handling and inspection standards). This score is coupled with a second value derived from a second software component, the playback analysis which is performed on a sample (if carrier allows). Taken together, the scores produce an overall rating to be used in preservation planning. Thirdly, it collects the metadata necessary for the planning and pricing of preservation efforts.
