6th July 2020 - Half way through the year, where did that go?
Covid19 - A quick note. We are still up and running so if you need your video tapes or cine films saved please do still get in touch. Give me a call to talk through what you have and what you want.
Well, here we are, well into our 18th year of savethosememories! It made me realise how old our video tapes really are. Early camcorder users will have video tapes that are over 30 years old. Video tapes are not designed for longevity and as I say to all my customers who have both Cine Film and Video Tape “your old camcorder tapes need to be saved to digital first”. So make this the year you save your old video tapes, whether large VHS or the smaller VHS-c, Video8, Hi-8, Digital 8, MiniDV or microMV, they are falling off a cliff compared to cine film.
It’s going to be a big year here at savethosememories. Not only I am going 4k with my brand new Cine Film scanner (once lockdown is over and it can be shipped from Paris and installed) but I have also invested in a brand new Rimage Everest Encore disc printer. I’ve had 11 glorious years with the class leading Memory HD from CTM Debrie in Paris. The Memory 4k Scanbox can create full 4k, 2k, HD and SD from your 16mm, 9.5mm, standard 8mm 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. My lovely TEAC P55C thermal 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 over 17 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 2020 “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. 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.
