High Speed Documentary / Archive Videotape Capture w/ Teranex (Valencia)

Networks are hungry thanks to the strikes and COVID-19! Tape-based documentary projects are on the rise, and many old features and series are being re-sold. We specialize in capturing and restoring old series and films!

We can capture with over *20* capture stations, and every legacy deck under the sun, with as many as 12 decks in each of the major formats. This allows us to deliver your captures far faster, yet at competitive rates. We can digitize:

- Betacam / Beta SP, Digibeta (all variants)
- U-Matic / U-Matic SP (best U-Matic transfer system in LA, happy to tell you why);
- HDCAM & HDCAM SR;
- D2, D5, and D9 (Digital-S);
- VHS, VHS-C, Super-VHS;
- Video 8, Hi8 and Digital8;
- miniDV, DVCAM, DVCPro, HDV, DVCProHD;
- DVD and Blu-Ray;
- many formats can be captured as PAL or NTSC.

We also offer professional baking services for U-Matic, Betacam, and other tapes that suffer from Sticky Shed Syndrome.

RECOMMENDED SERVICE: TERANEX UPCONVERT / DEINTERLACE TO HD OR 4K! With 100% or more detail and resolution than software methods, Teranex is the gold standard used by broadcasters for upconverting and deinterlacing.

We can also use award-winning iZotope RX software to clean up the sound on your tapes, for an extra $5/tape.

We can capture as 10-bit ProRes or in an Avid codec. For larger jobs (1,000+ tapes) we can add even more capture stations. We also rent out decks and capture stations if you'd rather do it yourself.

Please contact us for rates on much larger libraries. We recently captured 14,000 tapes in 10 weeks flat for a large educational foundation. Our clients have included the late Betty White, rock bands Maroon 5 and The Grateful Dead, the US Army, and billionaire Michael Milken.

Scanning services for 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and 35mm film up to 4K also available, as well as 35mm slides, negatives and prints up to 5,000 dpi.

We service the TV/film industry and specialize in re-mastering of old TV series and films, so have the best equipment available and only deliver the highest quality possible.

FINDER'S FEE -- if you refer us to a large (1000+ tape) documentary, tape library, or archive, we'll pay a 10% finder's fee. This can add up to thousands of dollars!
