Rugby: Bath Vs London Wasps 2004, Upscaled Before and After Example

The Clip below was taken from a job we have recently completed for BT Sports as part of a larger project to digitise their rugby archive which is stored on Digibeta tapes. Originally a Sky Broadcast in SD, the client requested the remastered version to be upscaled to High Definition in a broadcast-ready format.

The original recording was in 4-channel audio, with and without commentary. Alive Studios provided it to the client as 4 separate channels, enabling them to use just the live match sounds, over which they can re-record a new commentary, or use in future archive purposes like documentaries.

If you have video tapes you need digitising, from a single tape to a full archive, Alive Studios are the people to call.
