Q: So, should I have this work done?
A: Certainly! Depending on what it is, old films, tapes, and other analog media can be easily damaged or become unreliable with age. Also, as analog technology gets harder to find and maintain, it gets more expensive. So the longer you wait, the pricier it becomes to transfer your precious memories.
Q: I have an item I don’t recognize, can you help me?
A: Of course! Just send us a picture by email or text, call and describe the item, or bring it to us at the store, and we will gladly help. Our experts can then give you options for the recovery of the item.
Q: Do you offer bulk discounts?
A: It depends. We do volume discounts for items such as 8-16mm film rolls, photo and slide scans, and duplications of discs, but not for transferring video or audio tapes because of the intense labor they take to do.
Q: Is this really the best quality I can get from my tapes or film?
A: There are places that offer full HD or 4K of VHS tape and film transfers, however, we have found that it just adds to the blurriness of the footage, and the gains are too small for the price. If you are interested in pursuing this level of quality, however, do let us know, and we can try to upscale and use AI for your footage at a higher but competitive cost.
Q: This is too expensive! Aren’t you just putting a tape to play and pushing a button?
A: There is a lot more to transferring footage than pushing buttons. We inspect the tapes for physical damage, dirt, and other factors, then transfer and inspect the footage. Then it is trimmed, and compressed to a portable format, and a copy is transferred to our servers. If it is burned to DVD or CD, we also make a label and choose an appropriate case for them. We then inspect all items to make sure they work before you have them.
