G2D can offer a full spectrum of digital restoration for image and audio. Since every client and library is different we will plan a different roadmap for each project. The client can tell us what is the end product needed and based on the available sources we can customize service that suits the needs and budget.
For instance maybe a client only needs to get the content ready to be available for HD TV or VOD services. Depending on the source material available we will probably want to do a grain/noise reduction for an image that modern consumers are familiar with. If it is a title that the customer wants also archive and preserve for the future we would recommend to keep the grain intact to be able to exhibit how the title looked when first released for a historical viewpoint.
A lot of times a title will be available on many different formats such as film, HD tape (HDCAMSR, D5, HDCAM), SD tape (digibeta, betacam) and other older tape formats. Depending on the client’s end product we will evaluate and recommend the source element and the digitization strategy.
