The media pros at Hourglass Media transform old recordings and photographs into high-quality digital files with their advanced, onsite equipment. During film transfers, a technician converts 8-milimetre and Super 8 film to uncompressed files on DVD, ensuring picture fidelity with 700 lines of resolution. Analog media such as audio cassettes, VHS tapes, and vinyl LPs metamorphose into any digital file format, allowing patrons to load old songs onto iPods, share home movies over the internet, and replace every sound on the family computer with an old recording of grandpa snoring. Slide and photo transfers pull the same trick with old pictures and custom video editing further polishes heirloom moving pictures or important present-day footage.
