We will let you know an estimated delivery when we receive your tapes. All tapes have to be captured in real time.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located on Gertrude Street, Fitzroy. The Hollywood End. We are a part of KEWL x Banalarama Studios
CAN YOU UPSCALE THE FOOTAGE TO 4K?
We take your Standard Definition (SD) tapes, usually 720 x 576 PAL, and apply a size conversion during capture, creating a Digital HD File, without losing any quality of the original recording. Upscaling does not mean your old VHS footage will have that crisp quality of a Netflix show, it just means the frame is bigger and can be viewed in HD size on your TV or monitor.
WHAT FORMAT DO I GET THE VIDEOS?
Videos will be MP4 (Mpeg4), which is the most versatile and commonly used video file format on the internet. However we can create any file format you need, just add the file format you require in the checkout notes
HOW DO YOU DIGITISE TAPES?
We digitise a range of tape formats using professional tape decks, time base correctors, high-end converters and digital video capture cards. Essentially taking any analogue video, like a Standard Definition VHS tape, playing it through a professional broadcast VCR, then output through a time base corrector (to stabilise and clean the video), to a digital video capture card. The result is a high quality video file.
WHAT TECH DO YOU USE?
We use Professional Super VHS (S-VHS) decks with a time base corrector for the best analogue signal capture possible. We then digitally convert that signal using a video capture card. We also use various other video capture cards, vhs decks, convertors, up scalers and external time base correctors.
CAN YOU TRANSFER SUPER 8 AND 16MM FILM?
CAN YOU EDIT MY HOURS OF TAPE FOOTAGE INTO A FUN EDIT?
Absolutely! We are a full Video Production Studio with some incredibly talented editors. Let us comb through the 15 hours of Uncles feet footage and turn it into a real wedding video. An enjoyable and watchable 10min professional edit.
WHAT TYPE OF VIDEO FORMATS CAN YOU COPY?
Pretty much all formats! We have a lot of weird and wonderful legacy equipment from the 70's 80's 90's and 2000's! From obscure home camcorders to broadcast DV decks.
