FAQ

How long does it take to convert our tapes?

Once your tapes have been received we aim for a 3day internal process before dispatch.

Dependant on workload it fluctuates, we will do our best to do things as fast as practical.

How do we make payment?

We issue a itemised invoice for each project that is valid for 30days.

Payment is by online bank transfer. Payment must be received before any processes start.

What will the old footage look like on our new TV?

Unless it was shot widescreen all those years ago it will look like image below on a new TV.

We can pan and scan footage to fill full frame with the 'Director' service at hourly rate. Scaling footage reduces the image quality, the method of 'Pillarboxing' black bars either side retains the full original image.

Can you do old 8mm film transfers?

Currently this is not a service we are in a positioned to offer.

If you have a large quantity of this format we would only consider on a pre-agreed basis.
