Two major updates this month.
a) Along with the newer and bigger HP Z820 PC system I have also invested more in the G-TECH Raid storage systems I use to protect my customer's data. I have added another 64TB making a total of 152TB of raid protected data storage across my systems which means I will be able to hold onto Cinefilm data for up to two years and video data for 6 months. So if you have a disaster or want something changed months after the archive has been completed I will be able to get you sorted. No other company of my size offers this kind of safety net. So if your PC or Mac drives go POP! There is no need to panic over your family or historical archive. I regularly get asked to retrieve something from months ago so it is a worthwhile investment.
b) I have just invested in another broadcast quality Sony DV deck, this time with the capability to reproduce progressive tape playback. So I can now do both normal Interlaced or "i" and now "p" tapes. so, for example if you have something recorded in 1080p it can be retrieved.
Thanks to all of my customers for a very varied "Spring" going back to 1926 in one case and as recent as cinefilm film shot only in March 2015 at the other end of the scale.
