As part of Decibel Studios’ array of professional services, we offer a video transfer service from analog to digital formats. Please note that we do not transfer reel-reel audio or Betamax video.
We’re based in Momument Park, Pretoria but offer our service countrywide via PostNet. See our list of services and pricing below.

Do you have some precious memories stuck in a drawer somewhere on any of these analog formats?

  • Audio cassettes
  • DVD
  • MiniDV
  • Hi8
  • VHS-C
  • VHS
  • 8mm film
  • Super 8mm film
  • Photo prints
  • Slides
  • Developed negatives
  • Documents

We can help you get all your memories digitized and send it to you via WeTransfer, or you can bring us a USB stick, blank DVDs or an external hard drive after we’ve taken care of your old format media. Our best advice is for you to eventually store all these precious moments on the cloud.

In the case of digitizing silent 8mm and Super8mm films, we can add some music and titles if required, charged extra.

Contact 079 582 4827 if you would like us to take care of your analog media.
