Previous digital transfer services

Here is a summary of our old scanning, digital transfer video editing services.

Media Memory used to handle a wide range of analogue film formats to export them in the format of choice: DVD, CD or key.

It was the digitalization and duplication of all media, the extraction of digital media from any medium: SD card or even very old ones like floppy disk and Iomega disk.

We still carry out video editing projects of events to correct colour and exposure, do compilations, summaries, reduction edits or photo slideshows. We still transcribe video into text for English translation and subtitling.

A summary of our services

We used to transfer analogue film, video cassettes, Normal 8 and Super 8 movies, cassettes and audio sources, slides, negatives and paper images to digital.

Example of Super 8 transfer

example of super 8 transfer

We used our telecinema to transfer Simple 8 and Super 8 movies.

We transferred our films using telecinemas, which, by transferring at a constant speed and without flickering, guarantee a quality image.

Sometimes people didn’t know how to identify the contents of their reels before recording, in which case we transferred the raw footage to DVD for evaluation prior to editing. We then edited the video and produced another copy of the DVD.

By default, we left recordings without sound on DVD, but we might edit in a voice or music on request.

Post Transfer Audio Editing

The first type of digital audio editing is simple cutting and cleaning. We can also edit a digital audio soundtrack associated with a video track.

Add a general music track

This type of audio editing can be done with any type of video whether the source is old or new.

Add a specific sound track

Including music that corresponds to video over several tracks or themes. This type of audio editing is most often done for video tracks from mute Super 8 reels.

Add voice commentary

The third type of audio editing from video is to add voice commentary. The main difference is that we collect your feelings and comments about the video in question beforehand. However, we suggest that we record your own comments on your films together to explain what was going on, the scenes, the people in order to create an unforgettable family archive.

We have done this (kind of) work for our clients, especially for a commemorative anniversary montage going through 18 years. The person filmed themselves on camera and we took on the editing. Unfortunately without the ability publishing the content online.

Colour correction

We ensure the quality of the image and perform colour correction when necessary. If we saw an obvious discolouration, we would correct it as an editing option.

correction de couleur

Colour correction of images depends on the level of quality sought. Very good results are possible frame by frame or per batch.

However, in batch processing, the best case is to have batches that are similar in colour profile.

When scanning slides and negatives, we apply the most suitable correction depending on the project. Colour correction is available as a video editing option.

Camera cassettes retain their colour in general. However, we might do in-depth colour correction on a dedicated video editing station.

We apply colour correction filters to video for contrast, brightness to improve colour depth if the colours in your recordings are bland.

This is not always necessary, but some films deserve in-depth colour correction. We can correct the colour of your videos We can correct the colour of your videos

Old films (Super 8) age differently over time (Kodak is better than Fuji) and can lose their original look, sometimes turning purple monochrome. For monochrome mauve, we tend to put everything in black and white.

If there is still some colour, but bland, we can work to improve saturation and exposure. Specific colorimetry correction can be detailed work, looking for the smallest duration where the color does not change.

Photo reconstruction

It is possible to reconstruct a badly damaged photo. The example opposite seems to have received ink splashes in several places. We managed to remove these defects, making the photo black and white and by partly rebuilding pixels outright, especially for the face of the man.

before and after

We are not graphic designers or artists, but we know how to use the relevant tools. For any advanced artistic work, it is always advisable to employ a specialist.

Transfer of video cassettes

Old hardware is increasingly difficult to find in good condition. We transferred souvenir cassettes to digital format for families to share with loved ones and future generations. We transferred all formats of video cassettes, including VHS, VHS-C, Hi-8, DV, HDV:

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 tapes, magnetic audio reels and vinyl disks onto audio CDs, MP3 or WAV on USB stick or hard drive.

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.

Digitizing slides in digital format

We scanned slides, paper photos and negatives onto CDs, DVDs, USB sticks or hard drives or could send them to customers using WeTransfer.

Volume Slide Scanner

Many customers rediscovered photos taken in the 80s or 90s before digital devices were widely available.

Scanning photos allowed customers to relive past events, categorise them and share them with friends and family.

plustek 7200 for definition slide scanning

Most consumer scanners are able to scan between 4 and 6 images and therefore slide scanning can take a long time.

We used a volume scanner loaded with 100 slides enabling us to scan efficiently and at high resolution.

After-scan treatment

We cleaned, loaded and unloaded the slides, thus saving time for our customers.

We made sure images were oriented before delivery. We corrected the scan colour of slides per batch. It is possible to perform an optional colour correction, if you are looking for a quality rendition.

Make it an album

Some customers converted their photos into printed photo albums. What better way to relive your photos than to offer them as a birthday or Christmas present?

We scanned at resolutions of up to 5000 dpi allowing customers to enlarge and print scanned images up to A3. You could even make a poster.

Digitalization of negatives


We digitize digital negatives on CD, DVD, USB key, hard drive or send them by WeTransfer.

We scanned negatives and positives sometimes not even printed as paper photos.

Digital scanning photos allows you to relive past events and share them with friends and family.

Scanning of paper photos


We scanned paper photos digitally. Once scanned, photos can be adjusted to improve or restore their colour. Scanned photos can easily be included in family photo libraries.

You can also create a printed album or animated slideshow of photos set to music. This slideshow traced the history of a family from old paper photos, glass plates, mixed with scanned images of slides, negatives and recent 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 to keep and store them in a cloud 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.

Digitization of Glass Plates

We restored them as black and white digital photos after correcting the contrast and exposure.

The example below is from a private collection.

DVD duplication

We duplicated DVDs for schools and several theatre companies that had filmed events to distribute to the public. We duplicated DVDs for a public institution that needed to distribute documents. We provide you with as many copies as required with dust jacket, case or printed booklet.

We provided several options for cases: 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.

We provided specific quotes including graphic design or not depending on the project.

We duplicated DVDs in small quantities to distribute to your loved ones.

If you transferred your tapes or reels, you may want a backup copy that remains in the archives, or to give a friend or loved one.

Digital Media File Conversion

We offer digital media file conversion of your digital audio and video sources into other file formats.

Converting video formats

We convert between formats to move between editing platforms. We offer this service so that we can receive any audio or video input format and can output in any format.


Converting audio formats

Compression means that more sound can be stored on media, but may also mean lower quality. Despite this, MP3 can do the job, depending on the application, but for hi-fi and sound enthusiasts it just won’t cut it, the quality out depends on the quality in. We can extract or export sound from either WAV, MP3, or Audio CDs.

Upload to YouTube

You may wish to export, view or retain your media on YouTube. We can do this for you.

Hard and Optical disks

We handle corrupted hard disks and damaged optical disks. We have the connectors to take any media and the software to recover damaged hard drives and hardware to resurface optical disks.

Digital Video and Data Services

Récupération de multiples supports numériques

Digital video services are not limited to data manipulation, although many skills are similar.

Technical video editing requires excellent management of data tables to ensure that the right piece of video is in the right place.

Some projects aimed to arrange a very mixed set of videos chronologically.

Digital video services can be developed into other activities such as digital streaming or even other media/multimedia activities.

Data Management Services

Data is of course inherent to any computer system, whether it’s managing installation files and disks, drivers, backing up databases, converting log archives across generations of software, or managing a data warehouse.

Data management has many aspects, from the small personal scale to the data centre, I can’t claim to have seen them all, and all situations are unique anyway.

The key factor is to have technical knowledge of the container structure, sufficient awareness of the problems and know-how in physical data management.

Data management is therefore, like development, specific to bespoke environments.

Projects are evaluated on the basis of environmental analysis as a minimum, even to make a sales estimate. The size, scope and sensitivity of the environment, combined with the exact requirements and resources, help define the project or role.
