Let KTV preserve your old tapes and films onto a DVD or MP4
IF you’ve got old tapes or cine films of your family and
friends back in the day gathering dust in the attic and under the stairs, then why
not let us preserve those memories with our digitisation service?
Obsolete tape formats such as VHS, mini DV or cine films
hold many precious memories that you have no way of playing, but we are able to
make all of this old media accessible again by transferring, and editing where
necessary, the footage to DVD or web compliant files known as MP4s.
Converting films shot on old and now defunct formats is just
one of the many services that we offer, and will help to ensure that they are future-proofed for upcoming
Tapes degrade over time and playback formats become superseded
by new technology (have you still got VHS player?) so viewing them then becomes
more difficult as machines break and spares become impossible to obtain.
MP4 is now the standard for most domestic and
commercial-style footage, and down the line as 4 and 8K gain traction there
will be a need to re-format old broadcast footage, and although you can’t
up-scale size or resolution we can get old analogue recordings into a more
acceptable digital format.
Our transfer service is available for a wide range of formats
including the ubiquitous VHS (standard and long play), VHS-C, SVHS, Betamax, Video
8, Hi 8, Digital 8, Umatic, Mini DV, Beta SP, DV Cam and DVC Pro.
This service is also extremely popular with our commercial
clients that want to archive their historical footage for future digital usage,
such as when there’s an important anniversary like having been in business for
Before tape of course there was film so we also convert old
8 and 16mm films, transfer 35mm slides, and photos and we can preserve audio
recordings from cassette or 1/4 inch spools onto a CD.
Once we have moved your old footage to a digital format,
copies can be quickly run off for family and friends.
Whatever the format, no matter how obscure, we can give it a
new life; we haven’t been beaten by an old tape yet! So isn’t it time you had a
root around to see if there are any old films hidden away just waiting to be
Digitisation is perfect for mums and dads looking to
preserve a bit of their history and to pass on to their children and
grandchildren (and, let’s be honest, a short movie of an offspring’s first day
at school is a great way to embarrass them on their wedding day!).
