Digitizing / Video and Audio Conversion Services

Datarecovery.com provides professional video and audio digitization solutions with cutting-edge content management.

Under perfect conditions, broadcast cassette formats last for 20-30 years before losing a significant part of their magnetic signal. When video and audio fidelity is important, consumer digitizing services aren’t an appropriate solution. At-scale archival projects require expertise — and a working knowledge of legacy formats like Betacam, Beta SP, and U-Matic.

Digitize Your Professional Videos with Complete Peace of Mind.

Datarecovery.com’s technicians can address “sticky shed” syndrome and other physical issues that affect analog video cassettes in storage.

Unlike most digitization providers, Datarecovery.com has developed processes to handle projects at scale without sacrificing fidelity. Whether you have 1,000 Betacam cassettes or an extensive archive with tens of thousands of videos, we can help you form an appropriate archival strategy and keep digitized media organized with custom databases.

  • Betacam, Betacam SP, MPEG-IMX and Digital Betacam (DigiBeta)

Convert Analog Media to Digital Formats At Scale

Datarecovery.com does not offer consumer video digitization services. Our specialists deliver high-quality digital files while preserving your media in its original condition. By working in a controlled clean-room environment, we’re able to address the common issues that affect older formats, ensuring the highest possible fidelity.

And because we maintain hundreds of legacy devices, we’re able to offer fast turnaround times — even when media has degraded significantly.

AI Content Management System with Speech to Text

When processing tens of thousands of analog media, you need a content management system that makes sense.  Our customized web app digital content management system allows precise organization of your digital content. The CMS can be customized with an array of features including speech-to-text recognition, powered by state-of-the-art artificial intelligence.

Imagine searching through thousands of baseball broadcasts to find references to a player. With Datarecovery.com’s CMS, you could simply type in “Babe Ruth” (or “homerun,” or any other key phrase) to find all relevant video.

Our system can be modified with custom parameters to meet the specific needs of your project. And because our technicians input tape data during digitization, you can skip the spreadsheets — when you receive your files, you also receive an up-to-date database, ready to use.

The custom CMS is installed directly on your server and is compatible with all server operating systems. Client-side installation ensures the security of your media and long-term access to the industry’s most powerful media organization solution.
