Here is a summary of our old scanning, digital transfer and video editing services.
We transferred a wide range of analogue and film formats to digital to export in the format of choice: DVD, CD or key.
We converted and duplicated all digital media, extracting them from any medium: SD cards or even very old formats like floppy disc and Iomega disc. We then converted them for viewing on-screen or a digital frame.
A summary of our services
We used to transfer analogue formats such as video cassettes, Normal and Super 8 movies, cassettes and other audio sources, slides, negatives and paper images.
Digital transfer services
Super 8 and Single 8 transfer
We transferred 8mm reels to DVD in MPEG 2 or USB stick format in QuickTime or AVI format using one of our two telecinemas. We automatically removed the joins between film reels in digital video post-editing.
Example of Super 8 transfer
Sometimes people didn’t know how to identify the contents of their reels before recording. We transferred the set and exported to DVD for evaluation. We edit and re-edit your DVD. By default, we leave silent recordings on DVD, but we can add a voice or music on demand by audio editing.
Benefits of a telecinema
We transfer our films through telecinemas, which have the advantage of transferring at a constant speed and without flickering, to guarantee you good image quality.
We look after the quality of your image and make the correct colours when necessary. If we see an obvious discolouration, we correct it quickly if possible, but a deep colour correction is an editing option.
Camera cassettes retain their colour in general. However, we do the colour correction if necessary, optional mounting on a dedicated station.
Transfer of video cassettes
Old hardware is increasingly difficult to find in good condition. Have your souvenir cassettes transferred to digital format to share with your family, loved ones and future generations.
We used to transfer all formats of video cassettes including:
Transfer your camcorder cassettes to digital DVDs, AVI or QuickTime formats to USB sticks or hard drives.
We used to transfer camcorder cassettes digitally to DVD, USB key or hard drive.
Transfer of audio tapes and cassettes
We scanned your audio cassettes, dictaphone cassettes, magnetic audio and vinyl tapes on audio CDs, USB sticks and hard drives
We transferred audio cassettes, tapes or vinyl records either to digital audio CDs, WAV files or converted directly into MP3 on a hard key or hard drive.
You could listen to your vinyl records, your grandmother’s recording or your favourite 80s audio cassette on an audio CD, on your phone or in a car in MP3.
Slides scanned to digital images
We scanned slides, paper photos and negatives on CDs, DVDs, USB sticks or hard drives or send them through WeTransfer.
Most consumer scanners take between 4 and 6 images and therefore the slide scan can indeed take a long time.
We used a scanner loaded with 100 slides and therefore scans were completed efficiently, quickly and at high resolution. Not only that, but we’re doing it for you!!
We offered customers the possibility to rediscover photos taken in the 80s or 90s before digital devices were widely available.
Digital photos will allow you to relive past events, classify your photos and share them with your children and family.
We made sure images were oriented before delivery. We corrected the colour of the slides per batch. We included an optional colour correction for a particular quality.
Make it an album
Some customers converted their photos into printed photo albums. A printed photo album creation service is available on monalbumphoto.fr.
What better way to relive your photos and give them as a birthday present or for Christmas.
We scanned up to a resolution of 5000 dpi allowing customers to enlarge scanned images up to an A3 print. You could even make a poster with Poster XXL.
Digital scanning of negatives
We scanned negatives digitally to CD, DVD, USB stick or hard drive or sent them to customers via WeTransfer.
Our high-resolution scanner for images not yet printed as paper photos.
Digital photos scanning allowed customers to relive past events, classify them and share them with friends and family.
Paper photo scan
We scanned paper photos digitally. Once scanned, photos can be adjusted to improve or restore their colours. Scanned photos can easily be included in family photo libraries.
If you can create a library of your family’s photos, you can also create a printed album or slideshow of animated photos to music. This slideshow can trace a family history starting with old paper photos or glass plates, mix with scanned images of slides and negatives, and end with recent digital photos.
A library of digital photos
Scan your paper photos to create a photo library, printed album or animated slideshow. You could also upload your photos to a digital frame and display them in your office or living space.
You may want to save not only photos, but important documents that you need to keep and want to transfer to an online service such as Evernote. You may simply need to have documents backed up on your computer for safety reasons, fire, or simply for ease of consultation.
We took back the glass plates by a digital process. Here are for posterity some of the containers of the plates, which needed cleaning because of caustic deposits of dried bromide.
Unfortunately we couldn’t keep the images coming out, but following digital processing we made them come back in black and white photo, corrected the contrast and exposure, except a few edges eaten and images stung.
Here, on the other hand, is another collection of glass plates from Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon dating from the end of the 19th century, which has a certain historical value.
If you needed small amounts of your DVDs to back up or to distribute to your loved ones.
If we’ve transferred your tapes or reels, you may want to have a backup copy that remains in the well-protected archives, or you’d like to give a friend or loved one a digital film.
You may be a school or theatre company that has filmed an event that you want to duplicate and distribute to the public, a public institution that needs to distribute documents. We provide multiple copies with a jacket, case or printed booklet.
There are case options: CD, slim, slim DVD, full-size DVD. The price of printing varies depending on the type of case and the extent of your project or whether or not you want to print on the DVD itself.
Please contact us for a specific quote depending on your project including graphic design or not.
