ImageHive Vestaviahills, Alabama
Imagine how you’ll feel, to at last see the faces and/or hear the voices of loved ones that’ve been locked up in an obsolete format and left untouched for years.
We’ll free your precious memories from those bygone repositories safely and restore them in your preferred digital format, preserving them for generations to come.
We do it all: film transfer, videotape conversion, 35mmslide/photo scanning, and audio digitization with nearly every format using the best available equipment. It’s all done in our secure A/V lab with just a few highly trained specialists. Customer cataloging is handled systematically to ensure that originals are linked to their digital transfers and both are kept confidential and safe until we personally hand them back to you.

Sweet Analog Sound – Easy Digital Playback
Vinyl: Originally called a gramophone record in 1887, it is also known as phonograph record, vinyl, LP or simply, record. There are three sizes: 12, 10, and 7 inches in diameter. Although it is a very old format, it is still highly regarded by many audiophiles for it’s sweet, warm sound.
Vinyl records are notoriously fragile and must be very carefully handled and stored to maintain the integrity of the recording. Still, we are often able to transfer a badly scratched record, but with a significant loss in fidelity. Once we have it in the digital domain, there are some restorative procedures we can take.
