Primetime Media has all the facilities required to transfer your home movies to DVD or high definition* digital formats for very reasonable prices. Please see our video clip for an indication of the quality that can be extracted from cine film stocks of 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5 or 16mm.
Our studios are also equipped with broadcast quality video tape suites for transferring VHS, BetaMax, S-VHS, Video 8mm, Hi-8,DV/DVCam, BetaSP, BetaSX and DigiBeta formats. If you have any tapes that can’t be played, or that are in danger of being unuseable in a few years (which is the possibility with all video tape formats today as technical support for the players are no longer available from the manufacturers) then call us on 01205 750055 to talk about preserving these files digitally. Unfortunately we cannot transfer files that are copyright protected – for example TV recordings or commercially produced VHS films – unless written permission has been received from the producers of the programme or feature film.
*Tapes that are originally standard definition (ie VHS, 720 x 576 PAL 4×3) can be upscaled to high definition pillarbox but the quality cannot be greatly enhanced – unlike original cine film stocks. Please speak with our team for more advice.
