    Slides/Negatives/Photos/Videos/Archiving

    We have scanning stations instore to scan negatives (cut or roll), slides, prints (up to A3) or even your entire photo albums. Larger images can be scanned and stitched as an additional service. These can then be printed, or stored on digital media such as USB or SSD/HDD or DVD's. We also transfer VHS to these media and can outsource other types of tape to digital as well.

    We all seem to remember our videos and photos looking much better years ago than they might present now. This may be due to natural aging of the substrate, exposure to the elements, storage choices or handling. Especially the case for magnetic media (video and audio tapes) the natural aging of the magnetic particle alignment means that over time the iron particles realign as first produced and that means to us that they images appear grainy or at worst, like a fresh un-recorded tape. This is why it is important to store correctly and maybe play the tapes periodically to maintain the data.

    Did you know that the best form of archive over the last 150 years for photographic images, has been film based products such as glass plate, cellulose film and photographic paper that have all been developed using the Silver Halide process.
