Overview:  Professional services from parent company Cintrex AV for basic conversion of your “physical” analog and earlier digital media recordings to new digital copies returned to you via web-download links, or placed in your LightJar account.  The new files are suitable for sharing across the WEB or continued storage within LightJar.

Convert video and movie film to mobile-friendly MP4 files, images to JPG files, and audio recordings to MP3 files.  The services are applicable for:

  1. Home movies on 8mm/16mm film, video tapes, DVDs, Blu-ray Discs, Camcorder Hard-drives, and SD Memory Cards;
  2. Video recordings on broadcast tapes such as Betacam, DVCPRO, DVCAM or U-matic tapes;
  3. Images on prints, photos, 35mm slides, and negatives; and
  4. Audio recordings on cassettes, vinyl LPs and CDs.

Service Delivery:  From start to finish, the process takes 2 to 3 weeks.  Upon completion, Cintrex will email you web links to your new digital files, or notify you when the new digital copies are placed in your LightJar cloud storage account.  You will be able to download the files, share them across the web, post them online, or save them long term for future editing.  Always make a backup copy of your files when you download them.
