Our video restoration & enhancement service.


Video Restoration & Enhancement (service):



Restoration & Enhancement of (old or new) film and video material

Do you have film or video material that is not sharp, wobbly, vague, faded and/or played too fast or too slow?
If so, we can help you drastically improve this material in quality!

With the aid of special software we can significantly improve the quality of your digital image media, for example by:

  • Smart contrast and brightness correction..
  • Intelligent sharpening techniques.
  • Rigorous image stabilization.
  • Upscaling to a higher resolution (e.g. boosting to HD quality)
  • Speed correction (eg play old movies at the correct speed).
  • Linking multiple films/scenes.
  • Noise and flicker reduction.
  • All kinds of other filter and improvement techniques.
Video Restoration

Please note: This is a completely different kind of service than, for example, the digitization (putting on CD or DVD) of your old 8mm films.
