What's the format of the digital files?

 

Great question! 

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
