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 movie are over 40 years old the last thing you should contemplate is having them converted with any device that can damage or degrade film.
Many domestic machines for transferring movies are available from photo outlets or on-line auctions, 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 tyransfer 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 transfer part of your film FREE of charge, just send us a reel of film and we will convert part of it to drop-box free of charge.
You can also click video to see a demonstration of how we digitise domestic movies on our Flashscan Telecine machine. This is without a doubt the ultimate choice for the conversion of small format film if you value your archive film and don't want to break your budjet.
