ADS performs professional digital restoration in all video resolutions using state-of-the-art technology for exceptional quality and efficiency. ADS meets your varied requirements for SD remastering, resulting from new and upcoming digital broadcast standards. We couple the latest advancements in restoration technology with a dedicated team characterized by experience, passion and a commitment to excellence.
For our master craftsmen” a perfect restoration is more than the sum of all its individual parts–from the subtleties and nuances in a frame of video to keeping the neutrality of an audio mix. The classics are their passion: from delicate films that were presumed lost over generations, to America’s favorite TV shows of years past, ADS specializes in their resurrection.
Once ADS receives your masters, our restoration team evaluates your material and recommends specific solutions that will best fit your needs. This process help us predetermine the incremental steps necessary to carry out your project, to eliminate sudden surprises, and deliver your job on time, on budget and at the highest quality level possible.
The Snell & Wilcox Archangel® is an extremely high quality real-time standard definition (SD) restoration process. Incorporating state-of-the-art tools, the system allows our experienced and talented craftsmen to make on-the-spot corrections ranging from noise and grain artifacts, scratches and dirt to most video dropouts. Archangel also features picture enhancement and minor color correction capabilities to help minimize slight video imperfections in your restoration project.
For projects requiring additional restoration, ADS employs DRS, a frame-by-frame restoration process in both HD and SD that can make corrections to video material that contains artifacts such as film bumps, splices or even major film damage.
