May / June 2017
Pleasantly there is always plenty to do here. So many archives across so many formats to save. Cinefilm is currently running at least a three week delay to get your film to the front of the queue for cleaning. It is not a quick process, I can't apologize for that as I would rather take my time and get it absolutely, accurately, perfect rather than skimp, rush and miss things. Do it once and do it properly is my motto and I stand by that. I could never just do something "quick and dirty" by throwing it up on a projector. It'll take a month, but it will be brilliant....I assure you it is worth the wait. Video tape never takes as long so if you need a quicker turnaround on video tape that is never a problem.
Lots of new machinery for June. I have two new professional super-VHS decks and a new Hi8 deck last month's two new Sony HVR M25 MiniDV decks have been brilliant. As I mentioned in May I am so glad I built an extra Self-Edit computer file VHS / Camcorder tape capture station. More and more customers move towards DV AVI or QT MOV computer files rather than DVD archiving. Editing is great fun and it seems many more people are giving it a go ... Oh and the new Air-con is worth it's weight in Gold!
Right, on with the detail.....
My name is Chris and I have spent the last 14 years striving for the perfect digital image. Whether it is a Cinefilm to DVD transfer, or any other format such as Video, Disc, Card, Photo or Slide. I aim to provide the best possible service using class leading equipment, such as the "Memory HD" for cinefilm. Click on one of the boxes below and it will take you to all the information you need about your current archive format and how I will turn it into a digital format for you. I never, ever cut corners and every decision is made with quality in mind, right down to investing in the newly installed Daikin Air Conditioning, a full burglar alarm and full 4K CCTV system installed by Recosecurity. This is to keep the equipment running at peak performance and to maintain the perfect atmosphere for video tape and Cinefilm and so that my customers will know everything is secure. Only I work here, you will only ever talk to me so you will get exactly what you want from my service, it will be tailored to your needs and hopefully your final archive will far exceed your expectations. I will always be upfront and tell you what equipment I use and how your films and videos will be digitized. I look forward to hearing from you.
