Many Formats - Independent video has utilized many different formats. In the late 60's Reel-to-Reel video was used than 3/4" cassettes tape replace that.Than came along BetaMax/VHS only to be replaced by 8mm and mini DV tapes.

Restoration - We examine your Master tapes for physical damage, mold, cracked case. etc. In some cases the tapes may need to be cleaned, lubricated, vacuumed or even baked before playback. Using professional video decks and Time Based Corrector's (TBC's) we can often completely stabilize playback and enhance the audio. Usually we immediately transfer your video tape to a computer hard drive, since many tapes will deteriorate rapidly with multiple playback attempts. Further enhancements can be made using sophisticated software based Video and Audio filters if needed or desired. Finally if a DVD/BD will be made we add chapters and edit out bad footage (if desired) and proceed to encode the video/audio for the finished DVD/BD or digital file for youtube, mobile, etc…. more

Restoration of Archival Video:
Jerry at Dreamtime Productions restored priceless 3/4" footage of former governor Pat Brown for us. He was able to do what I was beginning to think was impossible and did it in a prompt and professional manner. If you have tape footage you're thinking could be beyond saving, Jerry may be your only hope!

Recovery of Archival Video:
In 1988, I taped a 2-camera shoot on 3/4 Video. In 2015 I sent the tapes for Jerry to transfer and unbelievably he not only transferred them to a digital format but to High Definition; and the finished product looked and sounded better than the originals. Absolutely unbelievable!!! If Jerry can’t recover the tape, no one can.
