We're Easy to Deal With

Understanding your goals and future-proofing your decision

When a customer is gracious enough to make an enquiry, we don’t leapt to any conclusions as to their end goal. That’s because we’ve learnt over time that people make initial enquiries with a variety of objectives in mind. Understanding this helps get things right first time and help future-proof their decision. Without this initial consultation, it’s easy to leave the client in a position where certain undiscussed goals might not be met.  Sometimes clients ask for the videos to be enhanced. It’s often the case that the problem lies not with their video and more with their deck. In cases like this, the client is saved from spending more money than they need to. Sometimes the client wants the film in a format that enables them to share it online with their family or even edit on a computer. In this case we’ll supply a digital video file. That’s one of the reasons why we’re different as Supaphoto – We’re determined to understand and meet your needs first time around, whether they are small or large in ambition.

Commonly Requested Options

i) MP4 Digital Video file
Here we simply upload these files for you to our Secure Supaphoto Cloud where you can easily download your films and share your films online with all your friends and family. These digital video files are easy to play, can’t get scratched. Also, if you like the idea, it allows you to have fun easily creating your own home movie editing projects in your own time and at your own cost instead of getting someone else to do this. Many people also upload films to their personal social media or family archival sites.

ii) Copy on a USB memory stick or DVD
Here we supply your files on a USB Memory Stick. All you need to do is insert it into your computer. Once copied, you can also share your films with all your friends and family. These digital files are also easy to play. Most Clients also ask for a DVD set too. These come with an attractive presentation case which also protects the disc from accidental damage.

iii) DVD
DVDs are great for playing and act as an ideal hard copy backup of your films. They are also great for giving as presents on special occasions.

Advanced Service

We are sometimes are asked for our advanced service which works best for older tapes – these typically result in sharper, brighter, more vivid colours with improved image stabilising.

This service costs a little more and takes a bit longer.

Either way, at Supaphoto, we are happy to customise our service to suit you.

Video tape repairs, video restoration and video editing

And don’t worry, we also provide video tape repairs, video restoration and video editing services. We know how important this is for older tapes.

Formats we convert to

We invariably convert your videos to digital video files such as MP4 but can supply DVDs in lovely presentation cases too. In general, we tend to output any videotapes to MP4 files which are smaller than raw files and have the benefit of being generally playable on both PCs and Macs. They are also easy to share and fully editable. On request too, we are happy to output your files to AVI too, or MPEG-2 if desired.

The great thing is that most smart TVs have a USB port on them so you simply have to insert your USB stick into your TV to watch your newly digitised home movies.

We can also create beautiful looking DVDs in cases for your home videos. We tend to convert each tape to its own DVD to maintain quality.

At times we’ll use larger capacity DVDs that can hold up to 4 hours of footage, for added convenience too.

One of Supaphoto's Proudest Moments

Being Chosen to Scan Sir Richard Attenborogh's Personal Collection of Film

Yes, we’re especially proud to have been chosen by Virgin Atlantic. Their prestigious sets of films, featuring Sir Richard Branson in the early days, catalogues their history and includes their early promotional films. The films show just how much the company has grown since the early days. The collection also included rare formats of broadcast grade video film together with produced 35mm cine film. We digitalised it all and remain very proud to have done so. But of course, we’ve also converted and improved thousands of weddings, christenings, holiday and school play VHS tapes too!

Preserving

Old media decays over time, by transferring it soon you can save your memories from fading away

i) Preserving their material

The magic of videos is that they truly capture the special events in your life – from when your child is born to its first steps and onto school.

VHS cassettes for example, were never meant to last forever. In fact, most forms of media can degrade over time and in even well-maintained, dry conditions of storage. Switching over to digital files or DVDs will mean that you can more easily store the video files on your computer, as well. Creating a back-up of different types of storage is always the best way to make sure your home movies have a long lifespan. The physical wear and tear and crinkled film that can happen when VHS tapes are played or rewound is something that we also see more and more. You should also consider the temperature tapes are kept in. Video images simply don’t last forever and can easily fade and deteriorate, losing the rich colours and details they once had. The only way to truly preserve these wonderful moments in time is to convert your videos to digital.

Sharing

If you digitise your media and put it on formats where it can be viewed, you can share your media with friends and loved ones.

ii) Sharing

Sometimes it’s a simple as being able to view your films again. You can also easily share your films over the internet at zero cost so there’s often no need at all to make expensive copies. It’s also so much more convenient to view your images on a large TV screen or computer!

Our services are also often used when people are considering giving gifts. We frequently see customers create videos for special birthdays or other events. Often it’s for weddings or Christmas presents. The list goes on. Whatever your idea, with a little bit of planning, you’ll be able impress your friends and family with a film gift that’s unique. Make your family’s smiles last for many years to come!

Finally, videos in boxes always take up a lot of space and create clutter. Digitalising them will quickly address this issue out too! Instead of taking up the space of a large suitcase, one of our recent customers is now overjoyed at the ability to simply took at them on her tablet!

Enjoying

Once your media is in digital format you can have fun editing it!

iii) Enjoying

There’s so much fun that you can have once your videos have been digitalised. You can really take control over your family archive!

Looking at old films that make your smile can only have a positive effect on your health and help bring your friends and family together to trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body!

Here’s just a few of the most common projects that our customers have fun with:

– Organising your films into logical groups
