What's the format of the digital files?

To clear up any confusion, Data and Digital Files are the same thing! They are special files made for editing and sharing on your computer or mobile device.

We encode videos in MPEG-4, mirroring the quality of your original media as closely as possible. Audio tapes and reel-to-reels are saved as WAV files, while photos are saved as JPEG images.

The MPEG-4, or MP4, files are a common video format used with computers and other devices, including editing software. They'll work great on any computer or mobile device.

For the techies, here are some specifics:

  • MPEG-4
  • 2500 kbps
  • 128 kbps AAC audio
  • Estimated file size: 1 GB/hr
