The skilled archivists at MAD Technologies accept old media and document formats via mail or in-store drop off, giving families and organizations a hassle-free means of preserving cherished content that happens to live on obsolete formats. Elderly books become digitized epics, and grainy home movies recorded onto Beta or 8mm film are reborn in pixels, all with customization options and lightning-quick turnaround. While digital material should last longer than its analog predecessors, MAD Technologies' staff plays it safe–technicians automatically archive and store all images and video, in the event that discs should be damaged or run away from home in their rebellious teenage years.
