I am sure many of you can relate to this….. You turn your PC system off at night and all is well. You wake up, switch everything back on and you get the feeling that something has changed and not for the better.

Great news….. here at savethosememories we use wetransfer.com to shuffle files around the world for customers. Previously any single file could not be larger than 20GB which was only 90 minutes in Standard Definition (720 x 576i) and only 15 minutes in best quality HD cinefilm (1920 x 1080i). This 20Gb limit has now been removed…

The biggest problem I see facing archiving of home movies isn’t age…it’s decay. I see cinefilm from the 1950s look as good as it was on the day it was processed, or within a few percentage points anyway.

Everything is running so smoothly this month, the new players are behaving like a dream across all formats, the new CCTV system and security alarm is working perfectly.

A fair few new pieces of equipment in this month. Three new Super VHS machines and a new Hi8 / Video8 machine, all with Time Base Correction built in.

Everything I archive is irreplaceable. It is priceless to the owner / keeper of the material. Probably not a lot of monetary value but that isn’t what counts for 99.9% of my customers.

This month I will be celebrating 14 years of Save Those Memories, I am so glad to have saved so many archives for my customers, hopefully you will join us……

Happy New Year. The thing I have noticed overall in 2016 is the shift away from Bronze service DVD, the simplest of my DVD based services.

As of today I can’t archive any more Cinefilm before Christmas. And slots for Video tape are almost all gone, call me with your requirements, if you only have a few tapes I might JUST be able to fit you in..

Because I am being asked with increasing regularity to digitize audio tape cassettes I have upgraded my tape decks to Technics RS-TR373 which is a superb audio tape cassette deck.
