Digital Image restoration
The purpose of image restoration is to "compensate for" or "undo" defects which degrade an image. Degradation comes in many forms such as motion blur, noise and camera misfocus.
Furthermore, when going back in time, one can find little "diamonds" from the bygone era that are evergreen. However, due to aging the picture quality of these films start deteriorating with scratches, grains and other such marks. With the process of digital restoration, the quality of these films can be restored and also upgraded in many cases.
Get the results you deserve with this quality service that includes manual frame by frame restoration using world-class technology. Our qualified team of professionals bring their experience and know-how with them on every job with attention to detail and receptiveness to the unique needs of each client.
