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.
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
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.
