Typically, you would send us your tape, disk, cartridge, DAT, DLT, optical, mainframe 9-track spool, 3490 etc... (see supported data formats). Or you could send in your video format (see supported video formats). We would then restore the data or encode the video from your input media and send it back to you on a CD, DVD-R, DLT, Betacam or any other preferred media. If the data format itself is not compatible with your new system, we would also be able to translate from one file type to another. For example, an Oracle Dump file to csv, Filemaker to Access, Packed Fixed Length to ASCII CSV, Pagemaker / Quarkxpress to PDF, Ebcdic to Ascii and many hundreds more.... For video formats we can encode to a range of different specs to suite your playback needs.
