Christmas is coming as quickly as it ever does. Every year it seems to catch us by surprise. If you have work that needs to be completed for Christmas please do get it to me as quickly as you can, if at all possible do not leave it until December.
As I am regularly asked how to send your films to me I will always suggest Royal Mail Special Delivery at this time of year. Recorded delivery is fine as a minimum level of service but there is that extra level of security with Special Delivery - The Silver Stickered service from Royal Mail, it’s tracked all the way and, like recorded delivery, signed for on receipt.
It’s going to be a big few weeks here at savethosememories. Not only I am going 4k with my brand new Cine Film scanner but I have also invested in a brand new Rimage Everest Encore disc printer. I had 10 glorious years with the class leading Memory HD from CTM Debrie in Paris. I have decided to upgrade to the 4k version which is 10 years more up to date with smart new technology. I will go into further detail once it is here later in the month but with my ethos of only using the best available equipment I thought it was time to invest more money to keep to that principle. The Memory 4k Scanbox can create full 4k, 2k, HD and SD from your 16mm, 9.5mm standard and Super 8mm cinefilm with full sound capabilities as before. Everything else stays the same with my attention to detail, cleaning and repair and most of all the colour and exposure corrections happening BEFORE capture. That’s why I stayed with the Debrie technology, it just works. So please do get in touch and I will be happy to save your archives on a brand spanking new Memory 4k scanbox later next month. My lovely TEAC P55C disc printer was starting to give less than 100% print quality so rather than trying to nurse it through, I stuck to my ethos of only the best will do so I have bought a brand new Rimage Everest Encore disc printer. It is the class leading machine and will print my DVDs and Blu-Rays to perfection for the next decade or so.
Right, on with the detail…..
My name is Chris, I set up my company in February 2003 and I have now spent well over 16 years striving for the perfect digital image, taking every aspect of this business very seriously indeed. Whether it is a Cinefilm to DVD transfer, or any other format such as Camcorder tape transfer, Video tape transfer, Disc, Card, Photo or Slide. I aim to provide the best possible service using class leading equipment, such as the brand new for 2019 “Memory 4K Scanbox” for cine film or the Rimage Everest Encore Disc printer. Click on one of the boxes below and it will take you to all the information you need about your current archive format and how I will turn it into a digital format for you. I never, ever cut corners and every decision is made with quality in mind, right down to Daikin Air Conditioning system installed by Recoair. This is to keep the equipment (and me) running at peak performance and to maintain the perfect atmosphere for video tape and Cinefilm and so that my customers will know everything is as perfect as possible. Only I work here, you will only ever talk to me so you will get exactly what you want from my service, it will be tailored to your needs and hopefully your final archive will far exceed your expectations. I will always be upfront and tell you what equipment I use and how your films and videos will be digitized (No one else does that). I look forward to hearing from you.
