Frequently Asked Questions
Take a look at the ‘What We Convert’ list at the top. If you can’t see your media type on the list or if you’re not sure what it is – don’t worry; it’s incredibly rare we receive something we can’t convert to digital. If you’ve got something particularly obscure to send us, feel free to contact us or just send it in your Memory Box. We love a challenge & there’s no charge if we can’t convert it.
You don’t need the exact amount for each package size. We leave plenty of extra space in each Memory Box for extra items and count up and send an invoice for any extras when they arrive here at the lab. The cost of any additional items is on the product page for each Memory Box package. This means you can simply get a smaller package size and add any additional items to the package once your Memory Box arrives with you.
Really, really good. We first pass your media through our cleaning & restoration department where we clean, repair and remove any build-up of dust & debris on a case by case basis. This cleaning process lessens any aged-based degradation of your media and is often responsible for the majority of the quality improvement. Once cleaned and return to its former glory, we use industry-grade scanning and recording equipment to obtain the best possible digital rendition of your old memories. All of our equipment is serviced bi-weekly and exclusively operated by trained experts. Finally, using software we developed in-house, we apply algorithms and processes to the digital files which brings them as close as possible to our high, modern standards.
You certainly can! We send a complete cataloguing system in your Memory Box that lets you tell us what to call all your new digital files and folders. If you don’t know what’s on your media, you can simply leave it blank and add your own names once you get your Memory Box back.
If you’re taking your filled Memory Box to a post office, please put it back in its protective postage box and put the sticky return label on the outside. If you’re having it collected, no need for the return label, just put the Memory Box back in the outer postage box and go to page 4 of your Welcome Guide for details on how to arrange doorstep collection.
Each memory stick contains the entire digital collection. You only need one memory stick for all the tapes, pictures, reels etc. you’re sending us; if you get multiple memory sticks, they will each contain a copy of the whole collection. Likewise, a DVD / CD set covers all the DVDs and CDs we need to make. Each tape, reel or cassette corresponds a CD / DVD, in its own jewel case, with the title you provided us printed onto it.
Any film photography – 35mm, medium format, negatives etc. are scanned at 3200 dots per inch (DPI). Any printed pictures are scanned at 1200 DPI. We first dust & clean each picture on a case by case basis to remove any debris that has built up over the years.
We send the originals, the new digital formats and a lab report back to you in your Memory Box.
We convert all kinds of cine film reel. However, we do not convert the audio line from cine film reels.
Due to the scarcity of properly recorded magnetic audio lines on the cine film reels, we do not have the facilities to convert it.
Our turnaround time does vary, but it usually takes under 2 weeks for your completed Memory Box to be returned (it can sometimes be a lot less!). If some elements of your order need substantial restoration, it may take us longer than 2 weeks. A great way to check our turnaround time is to look at our reviews, often our customers will say how long it took. Or, just send us a message, we’ll gladly let you know an expected turnaround time, based on your order size.
We convert your old memories to high quality MP4 video files. These digital videos are the most widely compatible both for watching and editing. You can just drag and drop your new digital videos into any video editing program to make your own edits.
