We believe you only want to have your old video tapes digitized once, and to have it done right. That's why our technicans capture and edit them by hand, rather than running them through a machine. Yet our prices give you the best value for your money.

Our approach to movie film begins with physical cleaning, then an HD scan at SD prices, and adds--at no charge--color correction and digital dust & scratch reduction, two things which are rarely available at any price. You can use the table below to see that for a typical project--1 hour of 8mm movie film--we could save you as much as $300, and still give you the best all-in quality available.
