Digitising

 

The use of modern, fully digital workflows now provides us with the potential to make our physical archive of tapes and film truly accessible. Many companies are just beginning to realise the true value of the archival materials which they hold, and yet, as materials fast degrade towards the end of their lifespans, these companies are increasingly faced with the prospect of losing this content forever. Digitisation is the first step toward preserving these important resources, and beginning to unlock their potential and their value within the context of a modern digital world.

Doxa Productions has built up a collection of state-of-the-art tape cleaning, restoration and digitising equipment to bring your archival footage into the 21st century, making it easily accessible and readily available for years to come. We maintain a wide variety of tape players, from DigiBeta Players through to older formats such as UMatic, while our professional tape cleaning equipment allows us to restore many tapes which are no longer playable due to damage, wear and tear, or dirt build up.

Through our experiences in digitising large collections, we have acquired a solid understanding of real-world archival processes, and have perfected a workflow that meets the highest international digitisation standards while remaining flexible enough to meet your budget and needs. Doxa has built up numerous strong relationships over the years with both local and international archiving organisations and experts, creating  a network of some of the most experienced people worldwide and ensuring that with us, your material will be safe and accessible for years to come.
