One of Supaphoto's Proudest Moments - Mould Removal & Video Restoration

We were recently given some video tapes to convert from Belfast. They were taken at height of the troubles and bear witness to some of the terrible events that unfolded for all in this period.

We were given the task of making them playable again. They were heavily impregnated with mould.

We used our dedicated mould cleaning machine machines in conjunction with our humidity treatment technology to restore the tapes to the point were we were able to restore 99% of the material to the clients satisfaction. 

Converted, Preserved and Ready to Enjoy

Choose what you’ll get back. Sit back and soak it in!

Our Passion for Video Restoration

Women like people. Men like things. That’s what people say. We’re not sure it always rings true but depending on your age, you probably well remember the hours and hours of your dad or grandad perhaps playing with his new toy.

You watched as he bought the films. With cine film, it was often cartridges in the case of super 8 that needed loading into Super 8 cameras. Before that it was double 8 film in Standard 8 cine cameras. With the latter, You would have to do it in a darkened room.

Later followed the age of video cameras. The first portable video recorder your parents most likely purchased was either a VHS or Betamax  recorder. In so many respects these were exciting and new times. The new portable recorders had  many advantages over their predecessors. However, one could also argue that the picture quality was not always superior to old cine film. In fact, we have seen many video tapes with inferior quality images compared to footage captured on a good quality cine camera in good light.

As an aside, it’s often joked that the first generation of video recorders  were responsible for many pounds being lost by the camera person. This was because they invariably had a separate portable battery power supply hanging over the other shoulder which was jolly heavy and cumbersome. You get the idea!

Our Highly Recommended Video Restoration Service

When you look back you probably realise how valuable those recordings are. In fact they are truly irreplaceable. But this was perhaps 20 years ago and 3 times more if you include footage originally shot on old cine film!

But stop and consider for a second as to what happens to old VHS tapes over time. In short, they simply start to deteriorate. The worse part is that the same issue affects all magnetic type tape. This means that the aforementioned video tape formats will also be affected by the way. We see it all of the time. And it’s not just nature doing its work at play here. It’s also other elements such as poorly chosen storage locations which sometimes result in mould. Transferring them after our repair work to a digital format will help preserve those memories for many many years.    

But there’s no need to get too concerned since at Supaphoto. We’ve seen all of these issues before with our video restoration service and have had lots of experience dealing with them.  

Tape Restoration and Mould Treatment - for Your Video Cassette

Of course video restoration is far from easy and we’re not keen to over promise on outcomes without seeing your cassette tape first. But generally speaking we have good results and are passionate about making our customers happy.

Supaphoto’s high quality video digitisation services come highly recommended and will result in your films being restored where possible and digitally converted to a format of your choice. This could be a digital file or/and DVD. The digital video file – i.e . MP4 would be delivered to you via our Supaphoto Cloud so you can easily share it with friends and family..

We’ll update you regarding the status along the way for peace of mind.
