    *How many tapes do you need transfering?

    Use the quantity selector below to input your number of tapes. You can add a maximum of 40 tapes at a time. If your archive exceeds this, or you have tapes in more than one format, simply place multiple orders.

    What resolution would you like your tape(s) captured to?

    We can capture your tape(s) at their native resolution, or you can choose to have them up-scaled to full HD, 1920 x 1080 px (interlaced or progressive). Our up-scale HD transfer uses broadcast  hardware to resample, smooth and sharpen the standard definition picture. The SD to HD transfer removes blocky edges (typically seen in SD to HD upscaling), suppresses video noise and reduces flicker, resulting in a very high quality HD upscale. Broadcast quality time base correction is used to ensure a rocky steady smear-free transfer

    Do you want interlaced or progressive output?

    Please select below if you'd like the output interlaced or progressive output. If you're not sure what this means, just choose progressive as most editing workflows these days are progressive. Or select both for interlaced and progressive output - note this will double-up your data.
