We also produce independent film for festival screening and music videos. We are a mutliple award winning production house (see Awards).
What is media transfer? Over the years, many forms of media have developed and evolved. Audio has ¼" reel to reel, vinyl LPs and 45s, cassette, DAT (4 mm) Tape, CD and even 8-track cartridges. Video has VHS, S-VHS, 8 mm, Mini DV ,AVI and other numerous digital formats. We can transfer your old format to a newer one…or analog to digital. For example, LP to CD, or reel to reel to CD. It all adds up to archiving...transferring that important or cherished media to another type.
Equipment : We utilize MACKIE DESIGN mixers, STEWART amplification, TASCAM, TEAC and PIONEER reel to reels (both quarter track and half track) , DELL Workstations, YAMAHA, ROLAND and E-MU synthesis/samplers/modules, PANASONIC and SONY analog and digital camcorders, and PreSonus, Aphex, ART, dbx, Alesis, Lexicon, Peavey, Ashley ,Furman, JL Cooper and Opcode processors.
