There are two processes to Restoration. Manual and Automated. We use the Digital Phoenix software to carry out the automated work, this includes stabilisation of the image as well as removal of dirt, flicker and scratches. We can also remove grain if required. After the automated pass we will then go over each frame by frame to manually remove anything the automated pass hasn’t.
We also hold the video tools option which allows us to restore material that has originated from tape.
