  • Flood and water damage for which we have developed techniques to clean, dry, and re-lubricate tapes.
  • Fire, smoke, and heat damage in which we replace plastic parts of the case and clean all contaminants from the tape's surface. We then re-lubricate the oxide so that it can be played and transferred to new stock.

Archival Footage Consultants

We also work as archival footage consultants. We can help you decide the best course of action for your specific circumstances. We use different measures depending on whether your project requires disaster recovery, preventative maintenance, inspection, storage, or duplication.

We determine our hourly consulting fee by the type of recovery undertaken (if applicable), the amount of research involved, and the amount of time required to set up equipment. We frequently consult on how to implement the best procedures for handling and to protect critical audio/video inventory.


Recovering data starts with an unrivaled understanding of the formats and recording devices that you own. Our team has the resources and experience needed to retrieve as much as possible from your damaged or degraded device.

As our elders continue to age and our memories fade, these devices and tape formats are all that connect us to those moments we cherish. The onward march of time takes a toll on physical tape formats, and damage to the camera may make it difficult to remove the photos and transfer those moments to modern digital drives. Our team has worked with 8 mm and open film formats, and we have developed techniques that have been proven to work in a broad array of instances.

Archive Retrieval

We implement an archive retrieval system for videotape libraries that is cost-effective. We thoroughly inspect both the tape conditions and storage conditions.

Video Tape Duplication

It’s no secret that VHS and similar physical formats have a limited lifespan. While every tape varies, you can typically expect some deterioration after a decade, and the quality only gets worse from there. Save your old footage with our videotape duplication services. You can also count on us to make copies of your newer footage with the highest quality possible.

We transfer video tapes from obsolete formats to formats that are either analog or digital. We also perform NTSC, PAL, and SECAM format transfers. Not all aging tapes need transference to modern storage. It's best to know which tapes in your archives are in danger of being immediately lost and which can wait for transferal in a gradual, timely, and cost-effective manner.

Whether you have one tape to duplicate or hundreds, you can count on our team to provide the right solution for you. Contact us today for a consultation about our videotape duplication services. We’ll be happy to work with you to identify which of your tapes are most urgently in need of duplication and create a project plan to save all your footage.

Bringing Memories Back to Life

Recovering data from a broad array of video formats is now possible when you work with a team that utilizes advanced technology and techniques. Bring in the tapes and videos you have and analyze each for duplication and recovery whenever needed. We work with video and offer audio recovery as well. We’re here to provide you with solutions that make sense and provide answers to all of your questions.
