Digital Transfer Service


Our digital transfer service has been formed in response to the growing need for digital conversion, fostered by the rapid advancement and prevalence of digital and online media, and with it the equally rapid obsolescence of older, analogue formats.

Having previously undertaken projects for individuals and organisations that include ITN, Channel 4 and the Associated Press, as well as for educational institutions such as the Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust and the University of Westminster, we have a wealth of experience with which to meet your needs.

The service is open to both members and non-members alike, whether you are an individual with un-earthed family film stock, or an institution or company interested in converting a library for archival or online delivery purposes. Please click through the options below to learn more about the service and the formats we handle.

Our Digitisation Service handles a variety of digital and analogue formats, including 16mm film.
