Project: Music Archive System
Sonoma State University, Sonoma, CA — The Performing Arts Department of Sonoma State University sought a way to improve the delivery of concert audio recordings to staff and students who requested them. The existing system involved manually locating CD-ROMs, duplicating and sending them via campus mail. The turnaround time was often measured in weeks, depending on demand and staffing.
Exit 445 designed and built a 100% web-based system, with FileMaker as the back end, that allows audio engineers to create online events and populate the events with audio files and program notes. Separately, we added a front-end that allows end users to login, search the music events, listen to audio tracks, put audio tracks into a shopping cart and then download the desired audio. The turnaround time of delivering audio files went from weeks to minutes and eliminated staff from to manually process requests.
