Most of our recent digital audio, photo, and video is both captured on our smartphones. Immediately accessible, shared on social media, and played wirelessly at home. Modern viewing through new media is convenient. In a day "long ago", specific machines were required to both record and play old 16 mm, 8 mm home movie film reels, vhs videotapes, audio cassette tapes, and slide reversal photo film. These types of older media that you'd find in a box or on the shelf at your grandparents' place; waiting to be played again with a simple request. Hopefully that is the case. Or maybe it is, but you just can't locate the box they were last seen in 15 years ago. But when we do find these "old" treasures, it's an experience that unravels wonderful personal memories deserving to be always there with us like the new media today. The unfortunate surprise some people can find though is wear and tear. Old movie films, video tapes, and picture slides might still look okay from the outside but the film itself deteriorates over time. As time passes with older media sitting in a box, the more problems can develop.
Over the years, our London, Ontario slide photo transfer service has proved some unfortunate issues with old film. Digitize work can reveal picture damage on photo slides with a bright red picture due to ink fade deterioration over time. Or with our 8 mm film transfer service; old home movie film can get exposed to moisture and break down. This type of old film is even found in audio cassettes and videotapes. Transfer of media at Peel Productions allows the preservation to digitize your film. "Digitize" the film means to convert old physical media formats such as: reels, films, tapes, and slides to a new digital file format. It's the same format you have on your smartphone and computer. The files created from this conversion process provide a more convenient viewing experience vs. the older original. Peel Productions also can improve picture clarity, fix dark scenes, and improve colour from your originals when needed. For whatever old media you have, we look forward to helping you through this process with experienced care and best possible results through our London, Ontario, film transfer service.
