RESTORATION SHOWREEL

 Example 1:  Unstable Betamax footage

This example shows footage from a poorly digitised Betamax video tape. The material is displaying severe chroma issues, detail loss, and intermittent loss of video and audio sync.  

We requested the original tape from our client, and used a customised VCR with manual tracking adjustments to optimise the attitude of the playback head in real time, as well as passing the signal through an array of broadcast-grade processors in order to resolve a stable, clear image and error-free soundtrack. 

 Example 2:  Mouldy VHS tape 

In this example we see a VHS video tape (circa 1988) that was brought to us by a client who had stored it for several decades in a tropical climate. As a result the tape had suffered severe mould contamination and could not be played. 

 

 Example 3:  Poorly digitised Super 8mm Film 

We were successful in removing all mould from the tape surface and edges. 100% of the footage was salvaged. 

 Example 3:  Poorly digitised Super 8 film 

This example shows one frame of footage from a poorly digitised 8mm film reel. We see unnatural colour, over exposure, excessive smoothing of detail, and cropping of the image.

After rescanning the film, we have restored the white balance and improved detail, as well as retrieved a significant amount of information that was missing from the edges of the original version.

 Example 4:  Noisy 78rpm vinyl record 

This is a raw capture of audio from a 78rpm record circa 1947. Signal to noise ratio is very poor.

Our noise reduction and voice enhancement processes have significantly improved the intelligibility of the voice.
