Wire Recording to Digital Conversion Service
Wire audio recordings were an early media format which was the predecessor to the reel-to-reel. Audio was recorded magnetically on a reel of steel wire about the thickness of a human hair. Wire recordings were robust and durable as compared to other mediums such as records and wax recordings. Because of this, wire recording gained wide usage in military applications during the early 1900s and through Word War II. Public usage of the Wire Recording format was in its peak during 1940-1950 with over a million reels of wire sold in the USA.
