FILE BACK-UP AND STORAGE TO MDISC ARCHIVAL PRESERVATION MEDIA

NOTHING OUTLASTS MDISC...NOTHING! We can take all of your "FILES" from your various types of media and back them up or copy them to MDISC (DVD) Archival Preservation MEDIA.

Don’t Think Years. Think Millennia. 1000 year Archival. Your life. Engraved in stone. M-Disc DVD will play on your DVD player or computer drive and is the longest lasting media available. Last longer than hard drives, thumb drives, memory sticks or ANY OTHER MEDIA.

M-DISC - DVD: M-DISC™ is designed to last for up to 1,000 years, which means once written, video, film, photos, audio and more can be read forever. Unlike computer hard-drives and regular/standard optical discs (CDs and DVDs), M-DISC™ preserves and protects your files by engraving your information into a patented rock-like layer, resistant to light, temperature, humidity, and more. In fact, The U.S. Department of Defense put this to the test, and M-DISC™ was the only solution that passed. The M-DISC™ cannot be overwritten, erased, or corrupted by natural processes. Best of all, it’s compatible with any DVD player, which means you can access your data anywhere and anytime.

The above chart is based on standard or regular type media. Some DVD discs are 100 year rated if using an "archival 100 year" rated disc. Hard drives and flash/thumb drives are very susceptible to damage by static, dropping, improper removal (unplugging) from a computer. Both hard drives and Flash/thumb drives are great for storing "volume" but not very good for long term archival storage.

RESTORING VIDEO & AUDIO TAPE - Video and audio tape restoration:

Dirt, dust, mold, damaged by being submerged in water as a result of a flood or disaster or has been exposed to other liquids or damaged caused by heat or high humidity, sticky-tape syndrome or heavy mold can be repaired depending on the tapes condition. There are several ways of restoring a tape and they should all be preformed by our professionals who have experience in dealing with problem tapes. Magnetic tape restoration can be defined as a process by which a video or audiotape, degraded by age, is temporarily or permanently transcribed to a playable condition and returned to its original state. The process is not meant to extend the tape's life, but to bring it back to a place where it can be played backed successfully and transferred to another media. The new master would be as faithful a reproduction of the original as possible without altering the quality. There are several options depending on the symptoms. We have cleaning machines that use tissue and fabric that has been found to be the safest, most-efficient way of cleaning a tape of chemical residue and debris. Sticky-tape syndrome, which occurs when a tape's binder layer begins to delaminate from the base material is the most difficult to restore. The process of bringing a tape back to a playable condition can be a complicated procedure. Tapes in this condition will not playback easily, if at all. If properly identified, these tapes can benefit from exposure to elevated temperatures (Baking) for several hours, which bakes the binder back onto the base material. This consolidation of binder and base stabilizes the tape system so that it can be played once while the information is copied on to a more stable format. Baking tapes is an extreme measure that irreversibly physically modifies the tape. The results from the baking process are not always successful.

Depending on what is required to get a stable & clean picture & audio. Cost is on a per hour basis and would be calculated upon inspection of the videotape. Discounts on volume.

MINIMUM CHARGE $75.00

$75.00 PER HOUR + PARTS IF REQUIRED; INCLUDES DVD MASTER
