We understand how precious your video tapes are, so work tirelessly to turn regular old video tapes into impressive movies. We transfer VHS, VHS-C, Betamax, Video8, Hi8, Mini DV, HDV, Digital 8 and Micro MV tapes. We can work with PAL or NTSC. This is no ordinary transfer. We carry out extensive restoration and repair work and always upscale your videos to HD. On top of the awesome technology, you’re employing your own dedicated editor to work with you.
Our team are all senior editors each having no less than 10 years experience in archive film. They will scrub through your footage, deleting blank areas where the screen goes blue, and editing out unwanted material like floor-filming, and lens-cap filming. They look out for obvious mistakes like TV shows taped over family movies, and so on. Our service always includes removing these obvious bloopers to make your films as tidy and professional as possible.
"Tell me what I'm paying for..."
With our money-back guarantee, you will only pay for tapes we can transfer, so in the unlikely event they are broken beyond repair, you won't pay a thing. We also don't charge for tapes which are blank or have been recorded over with unwanted footage.
We digitally remaster and repair your film through our professional editing decks and Teranex Processing units with extremely high quality de-interlacing and temporal recursive noise reduction. Your transfer will be carried out by a highly experienced editor.
"What kind of problems can you fix?..."
Customers are astonished to find that films that jump to the point of being unwatchable due to tracking problems and stretched, saggy tapes, can become viewable film once more. Worn out and degraded tapes which have washed out colours, orange skin tones, and white fuzzy flecks, are improved. Dark films with poor lighting cause horrible colour-noise issues - we have specialist filters to combat that problem. The technology alone is not enough - combining the amazing Teranex system with a highly skilled editor makes all the difference. If you have a large collection of tapes to transfer, why not sample the service on one tape to see just how much we can do for you - we're sure you'll be amazed!
