Video Restoration Services

The average video tape is 15-20 years old. Since it was recorded, the colors and exposure have deteriorated and there is more video noise (white snowy speckles) then there was originally. That why you remember the video looking better than it does now.

Our broadcast restoration machines will correct the color and exposure as much as possible and will reduce the amount of video noise on the tape. In addition, these broadcast machines can correct tape tacking/rolling issues in most cases.

Below, we are showing the difference between the original video and the video after restoration. The SD process does not include restoration and will produce video that looks like the original tape. The Pro SD/Pro HD process include color/exposure restoration and tracking/rolling correction. What we are using below is video tapes in average condition so you can get an honest idea of what to expect.

The Restoration Difference

Original Video
(SD Process)

Color / Exposure
(Pro SD/HD Process)

Color/Exposure Enhancement: Some video tapes need color and exposure correction based on age of the tape. The older the tape, the more correction it will most likely need. Not all color and exposure issues can be fixed. The above example shows a uniform color/exposure shift. This can be fixed. However, some video tapes show green or red flaring around people or objects and is not a uniform color shift. These types of issues cannot be fixed.

Tracking / Rolling
(Pro SD/HD Process)

Tracking Correction: Not all tracking/rolling issues can be fixed by the Pro SD or Pro HD process. In practice we see the broadcast decks reduce tracking/rolling issues by about 75%. This example includes color/exposure correction as well.

*Quality of restoration is dependent upon condition of existing videotape; severely deteriorated original materials may be beyond the reach of even the most sophisticated restoration methods.
