Our studio is equipped with professional Blackmagic and live steaming encoder /transcoders complying with The National Archives Standards.   We transfer analogue and digital Pro-video tapes   PAL & NTSC from SD to HD for inclusion in your broadcast projects or archival purposes. Our systems convert to all digital formats with outstanding noise reduction, excellent quality upscaling & output, frame rate and aspect ratio conversions. 

TAPE BAKING STICKY SHED SYNDROME

Tape baking: Some tapes may require baking to remove moisture caused by Sticky Shed Syndrome.  This is usually experienced with U-matic tapes and associated due to a breakdown in the glue (binder) that holds the oxide atoms onto the tape. Typical signs are squealing as the tape passes through the head. Without baking this will transmit through the ouput and will damage the tape and/or players.
