Heritage films

With the emergence of new digital restoration methods, new requirements have arisen. The digitization of film restoration now imperatively requires 2K/4K re-mastering of your heritage films.

Heritage film restoration

Built around a SAN architecture, this infrastructure enables us to optimise interaction between the grading and restoration processes by working simultaneously on the same DPX image suites.

Our added value is to offer a complete chain: mechanical restoration, digitisation, digital image and sound restoration, colour-grading through to PAD or DCP files.

It is this respect for the work and our technical experience that our customers come to us for, with the certainty that they are working with the best equipment available.

Mechanical film restoration

Mechanical restoration prior to transfer is sometimes necessary. This reduces video restoration times by removing any dust, traces of glue or defective adhesives beforehand. Vectracom has this equipment in Paris as well as a subsidiary based in Morocco (Sauvecom) specialising in film archive processing.
