reproduction, digitising, migration

We use a mixture of professional and domestic video tape recorders for video tape transfer to ensure the original analogue tapes play and transfer as accurately as possible.

We also use tools such as waveform monitors, vectorscopes, time base correctors, frame synchronisers, audio delay units and standards converters to migrate analogue video tape to digital formats.

video formats digitised and transferred

We can support and migrate a wide range of domestic, professional and broadcast video tape formats to digital files.
