While we are happy to provide you with a DVD/ BluRay/ CD version of your media, you should know that these types of “containers” have an average life span of 7 – 10 years before they begin to chemically decompose (resulting in the corruption of the data on the disc), notwithstanding the inherent risk of actual loss or damage to the “container” itself. As we transition into the digital age these formats are quickly becoming impractical and will eventually become obsolete. If you want to be able to easily share, edit, and make unlimited copies of your media, regardless of the type, then you require the digital file(s) for your computer.
Each individual piece of media we convert (video tape, audio tape, 8mm/16mm film, photo/negative/slide) becomes a unique digital file that can be returned to you on either a data disc, USB, external hard drive, or via dropbox/ the cloud. We keep a copy of your digital files on our backup servers for 30-days post completion providing an additional layer of safety for both you and us. Of course, we are happy to transfer your digital files to one of your devices but otherwise keep a wide variety of USB’s and external hard drives in-stock should you require.
There are a wide variety of digital file formats specific to video, audio and images and we have the capability to output to all of them:
Each format has unique characteristics that are best suited for a variety of potential needs. We will always take the time to walk-you-through the solution that makes the most sense for you – both current and future.
We have a very rigorous Quality Control process which gives us the confidence to say that we completely stand behind our work and guarantee the results. If there are any issues with the quality or performance of the digital materials created (not having to do with the physical condition of your media) we will reprocess those materials at our expense, no questions / no hassles.
We are overwhelmingly committed to ensuring the Safety, Security and Privacy of our clients information:
“Working with Digital Treasures was a great experience from start to finish. Our company needed to get some digital conversion work done quickly and at high quality and DT delivered on both accounts. They made the whole process simple and stress-free and provided us with a great quality product. We’re already planning to do repeat business converting our old video archive and I would highly recommend their services to others.”
“The David Suzuki Foundation turned 25 years old this week! The Foundation trusted Digital Treasures with 25 years’ worth of irreplaceable archival video footage. Marc and team were a pleasure to work with every step of the way. Professional, trustworthy and an outstanding finished product. Expectations exceeded.
Thank you for helping to preserve and share our history.”
“I have this afternoon received the return of my film and your digital scans. A quick look and I'm thrilled! Thank you so much for the clearly considered attention to my requests.
I'm also recommending you to friends at the Vancouver Art Gallery Imaging Department. More to come, with again sincere thanks for this.”
