Preserving stories from the past.

Time is running out for your old audio and video recordings, films, slides and prints. Not only are movie projectors, tape recorders, slide projectors and VCRs becoming harder to find, some tapes and films are deteriorating as they sit in your closet. Soon they will not be playable at all. Now is the time to preserve those memories before it’s to late.

With close to 50 years in the media production business, over half of that time in the analog era, we know the best way to handle film, tape and vinyl conversions. Each conversion job is customized to fit the condition of the source and your digital archiving needs.

New! Multi-Image Restoration

If you have a multi-projector slide show from the 70s thru early 90s, it can be an important historical record. We at Advent Media, Inc. have perfected a system to restore a Multi-Image show, now matter how many projectors or screens, to its full fidelity in 4K video. The service requires the original slides and a VHS or other low resolution video of the show with the soundtrack. We will transfer the slides at higher than 4K resolution, then sync them to the original soundtrack using the video as a reference, reproducing graphics, using video transitions and, if desired, adding special effects like pans and zooms. Then  we deliver on DVD, Blu-Ray or any high definition file format up to 4K. Learn More >
