Policies and Goals
Your Films, Videos, Photos and Sound Recordings
I appreciate the value you place upon your own memories and archival material, your original material while in my possession will be cared for as if it was my own. Your material is checked and cleaned and equipment is tested with my own material and cleaned before processing yours. My aim is to get the best possible transfer to computer and without causing damage to your original material.
Though I take utmost care I cannot make absolute guarantees against accidents, problems caused because material may be deteriorated in some way or be responsible for transport and shipping problems, though I do endeavour to minimise risks as much as absolutely possible.
Computer files for each project are retained for a short period should you feel there is a problem with your final CD/DVD and an electronic master copy of your finished disc/s will be kept in my archives for a reasonable period should you need more copies. But please, for your own safety, do not rely on my archive storage as your backup.
My primary goal and passion is to restore and preserve to as high a standard as possible my client's film, video, photographic and audio material and to be constantly researching and improving my equipment and processes, knowing that much original older media and recordings are rapidly degrading. Often these recordings are the only copy in existence and will be lost completely if nothing is done before it is too late.
Since about the mid 1990s multi media technology has totally changed including completely new developments in high definition video, digital sound, Internet media distribution and media with capabilities previously only dreamed of. I aim to keep up to date with latest developments, particularly where it helps with copying, restoration and conservation of older and mostly analogue audio and visual media.
If you have information to communicate or audio and visual media to deliver, there are now many new, exciting and effective opportunities for delivery to a potentially greater and more diverse audience that ever before. I am constantly researching new developments and opportunities I can offer to my clients.
As digital audio and video technology has continued to improve so has the technology developed to recover older recorded media and restore sound and visuals in ways previously not thought possible and in this also I am constantly researching ways to improve the services I offer.
Talk to me about your needs, I am here to help you and willing to listen, you will be surprised at the possibilities.
