Videostation was established in 1979 converting film for the UK broadcast industry. Today we convert film, slides, video and audio tapes for museums, archives, producers and private individuals.
Film to Digital
If your old movies are over 40 years old the last thing you should contemplate is having them converted with any device that can damage or degrade your film. Many cheap domestic film scanners are available from Ebay, Trade Me and other outlets, but the results do not even begin to match those from a professional telecine machine.
Videostation will convert your Super 8, Standard 8, 16mm or even 9.5mm film to high quality images using our professional machines. These are the same type of machines that are used to transfer film for television. You can read more about professional film conversions on our FAQ page.
Our facilities can also colour correct, remove scratches, stableize shaky movies and convert audio from your movies including optical, magnetic or stereo sound. Have a look at the examples on this page.
Because we are based in Christchurch and not Auckland or Wellington our rates are also very competative. The images from the new machine are fantastic. You don't have to take our word for it. We will also transfer part of your film FREE as as sample. Just send us your film (marked sample) and we will convert part of it free of charge, or watch our video to see a demonstration of how we digitise 8mm home movies on our Flashscan Telecine machine.
