Questions about our Free Sample Offer

Can I get my sample reel, tape, or slides added to my full order? No. The sample is just that, a sample, not a free transfer or conversion. If you decide to send the rest of the order after you have inspected the sample we would just re-transfer/convert your video, film, slides or audio order.

How much of our film, slides, video or audio are we getting transferred for free?

- Film customers will receive a transfer from the beginning of a single reel, in the transfer method they require (with cleaning and lubrication). We transfer roughly 1 to 2 minutes of movie film.

DIGITAL MOTION PICTURE FILM SCANNING SAMPLE: transfer method (with cleaning and lubrication). Is limited to Motion JPEG (M-JPEG.MOV) FILE in SD. Approximate 1 to 2 minutes of a roll would be transferred and the file placed on a DVD for you to view on you computer or editing program. None of these files can be e-mailed do to the large file size.

- Video customers will receive approximately the first 2 minutes of VHS footage converted to DVD-R in High Quality M-PEG 2 Format or AVI file. None of these files can be e-mailed do to the large file size.

- Slide customer can send in 2 (TWO), 35mm slides and receive a data CD with the slides scanned in J-PEG format  and receive a sample of both slides with complete digital restoration and and RAW (no restoration). This way you can see the difference between the two options. The J-PEG files from the slides can be e-mailed. We would scan them at a size no bigger that 5MB for ease of e-mailing.

-Audio customer can send an audio cassette, 1/4" reel to reel or record and you will receive approximately 2 minutes of audio recorded to a CD with audio restoration included. The audio sample can be e-mailed.
