Oxford Duplication Centre hold an established 10 years of experience in the fields of video tape conversion. Highly recommended in Oxfordshire and surrounding areas by leading corporate companies incuding B4 Business, Blenheim Palace, Educational Facilities and many 1000's of private clients.

Our services include full archival support to convert and transfer PAL and NTSC video tapes to digital formats to suit your archival requirements. All files will be ready to play on any platform and suitable for editing purposes. Videos can be repaired prior to transfer, professionally edited, enhanced and colour corrected as requested. All audio is encoded in Dolby digital.

The purpose of a preservation/archival copy is to create a high quality duplicate of the original. This ensures if the original deteriorates to the point of no use, then its copy can take its place. A preservation copy will last for many years and from that copy many other copies in required formats can be obtained.

The purpose of keeping an 'access copy' is to ensure that the original is preserved. The access copy is a copy that you can use and play back for your purposes. MPEG4 and DVDs can be prepared from these to allow you to playback on any device or player. We provide preservation copies and access copies as part of our service.

 

HIGH QUALITY ARCHIVING AND PRESERVATION OF YOUR VIDEO TAPES

We offer video tape digitising, archiving and preservation for individuals, institutions and archives in Oxfordshire and the UK. Working with video has its many complications. Our computers and conversion systems are robust and perfectly able to handle large data throughput. We are experienced in handling fragile and deteriorating videos and can support the baking of tapes.

At Oxford Duplication Centre we prepare video preservation copies with high resolution, high bitrate, no compression or certainly very little depending on requirements, and open or non-proprietary formats. It is important to undertand that access copies will have reduced resolution, a low bitrate and be fairly compressed. We will deliver the completed preservation and access copies, if required, on hard drive or whichever method that suits you. If you require transcoding in any format then we can support all your requirements. We can support you with incorporting metadata into your digital files. This information is data that can include a title, date, location and any other information you require.

THE IMPORTANCE OF UNDERSTANDING VIDEO TAPE AND FORMATS

  • Acetate (1950s-1970s): tape base that deteriorates over time by drying out. The tape will be very brittle and may have a distinct smell of vinegar; the breakdown of the acetate is often referred to as vinegar syndrome.
  • PVC (1950s-early 1970s): inexpensive plastic tape base that was not widely used.
  • Polyester (early 1950s-present): also referred to as Mylar or PET. Chemically stable tape base that became the norm for videotape manufacturing by the 1970s.
