• About

    It all started out as a small project converting a family’s history of slides, photos, LP’s and a vintage collection of 8 & 16mm Film to digital formats. The word got out and the rest is history. In no time, we were flooded with work.

     

    Today, the company has grown from strength to strength and serve a large number of corporate and private clients across South Africa, offering a vast range of media services all under one roof.

  • Most Common Questions

    Where is your offices and how do I get my videos & photo's to you?

    We are based in Stellenbosch in the Western Cape. If you are not too far from us you can drop it at our office or otherwise you can make use of a professional courier company. The courier option is after all very beneficial if you are in other areas of South Africa.

    Are my original videotapes, photos, negatives and slides sent back to me?

    Of course! Everything will be sent back to you shortly after it has been converted. If you send photo albums, they will be returned with your photos replaced in the album. If you send slide carousels, they will be returned empty with your originals in slide archive boxes.

    How long does it take?

    It takes 2-4 weeks from when we receive your video and photo memories until we have finished professionally preserving them. If you have an exceptionally large order, it might take a little longer.
