Photos

Turn your old photos into lasting digital keepsakes. We have transferred thousands of photos, some dating back to the 1890’s for clients. Photos are scanned at 300 dpi; we can also scan at 600 dpi at extra cost. Client receives either a flash drive or digital download.

Video Tapes

Video tapes continue to represent one of the most used {in the past} means of capturing family events and memories. We maintain the latest equipment used for this transfer work. Client receives a video file as an MPEG 4 (H.264) file.

Reel to Reel

Although not very popular in many homes, reel to reel was used for voice and music recordings. Religious event preparation and concerts often had voice or musical placed on this magnetic tape. Reel to reel systems, which first Used recorded reel to reel tapes are still available on-line.

Audio

Although sales of prerecorded music cassettes in the US had dropped dramatically between 1990 and 2007, there are still significant numbers held by consumers. In addition, there were increases in cassette tape production from 2016-2018. Many of these audio cassette tapes were used to record speeches. Our unique equipment is able to transfer both sides of a tape simultaneously. We recently completed the transfer of approximately 1,000 tapes for a well known speaker.

Micro cassette

Micro cassettes have mostly been used for recording voice. In particular, they are commonly used in dictation machines and answering machines. Micro cassettes have also been used in computer data storage

Slides

In photography, reversal film or slide film is a type of photographic film that produces a positive image on a transparent base. Advantages of slides when being digitized include more accurate color translation. At Scan A Lot, we have digitized slides for residential clientele as well as a former magazine editor. For train aficionados, we have considerable experience in producing high quality digital train images.

8mm Film

8 mm and Super 8 mm Film: All 8 mm and Super 8 mm movie film is transferred using sprocket-less equipment and LED light source, to avoid damaging the film.

Records

A phonograph disc record (also known as a gramophone disc record, especially in British English), or simply a phonograph record, gramophone record, disc record or record, is an analog sound storage medium in the form of a flat disc with an inscribed, modulated spiral groove. The groove usually starts near the periphery and ends near the center of the disc. At first, the discs were commonly made from shellac, with earlier records having a fine abrasive filler mixed in. Starting in the 1940s polyvinyl chloride became common, hence the name “vinyl”. In the mid-2000s, gradually, records made of any material began to be called vinyl disc records, also known as vinyl records or vinyl for short.

Negatives

a negative is an image, usually on a strip or sheet of transparent plastic film, in which the lightest areas of the photographed subject appear darkest and the darkest areas appear lightest. This reversed order occurs because the extremely light-sensitive chemicals a camera film must use to capture an image quickly enough for ordinary picture-taking are darkened, rather than bleached, by exposure to light and subsequent photographic processing.
