Dedicated Archiving Facilities

An artist's catalogue is their most valuable asset

To ensure artists’ valuable catalogues are preserved for the future on secure hi-resolution formats, we have created proprietary systems to provide an unsurpassed service. Our highly skilled engineers oversee the transfer, preservation and restoration of material from a wide range of sources, from both analogue and digital formats.

Material is transferred to the highest possible technical specification while staying faithful to the original recorded sound. We can digitise a wide range of analogue media, including reel-to-reel magnetic tape, vinyl records, shellac 78s and metal masters as well as digital material such as DASH, Pro-Digi, DAT, U-matic and Exabyte tapes. Our engineers and support staff will devise bespoke solutions for each individual project to ensure the optimum results for the client.
