  • WHY DIGITIZE?

    Many users of magnetic media and film risk certain conditions that can compromise the quality and usability of their content. These include binder hydrolysis, chemical breakdown, failed splices, sticky shed syndrome, mold/dust/debris buildup, shrinkage and vinegar syndrome. With the life expectancy of analog media rapidly drawing to a close, digitization is the smart choice for those who want to not only preserve their content but also want the ability to conveniently share their content with a wider audience via multi-platform distribution. The benefits of digitizing your content are well worth the investment:

    PRESERVE AGING ASSETS

    INCREASE EXPOSURE & REVENUES

OUR PROCESS

Prior to digitizing, we will perform a complete assessment of your content, analyzing its condition and format, as well as your existing storage methods and practices. Our experts can determine alternative measures that might be more beneficial for your specific needs. We will then capture the footage, integrate, digitize and, if necessary, restore it where applicable. Our technicians use the most up to date recording systems in the business with superior video quality playback. Once your media/project is placed in our system, it can be accessed, transferred or distributed anytime, anywhere. Simply access your file(s) via our web portal.  We can also ship them to you directly.  Each file is catalogued using a unique barcode to ensure safekeeping and asset ID. We implement the best archive solutions that will allow your media to be transferred to the format that best suits your needs. In addition, our convenient archiving techniques will save you the time and expense of having to find your own storage.
