At the Preservation Studio inside NOPL at Brewerton you can convert your older, analog memories into digital formats.
Making an appointment is strongly recommended (see FAQs below). Call 676-7484 to schedule your appointment.
Digitize those precious family photos!
Our equipment can quickly scan through stacks of loose photos or photo album pages that include mounted photos (up to 50 photos per minute!). The digital photos will have a resolution of 300 dpi and can be saved to a CD, DVD or flash drive. See a video demonstration of the flatbed scanner and the photo-feed scanner on YouTube.
Convert VHS to DVD
Transfer your old VHS tapes to digital!
Transfer old home movies on VHS to DVD for your personal viewing pleasure. Please note that digitization happens in “real time”, so a 1 hour VHS will take about 1.5 hours to transfer to DVD. You will need a writeable DVD to save your work to. See a video demonstration of the VHS to DVD converter on YouTube.
Preserve your 35mm photo slides!
Rediscover and digitize that box of old loose slides or slide carousels. You’ll be able to scan up to 15 slides/minute and save your digitized copies to an SD card. Laptops with SD card readers are available if you wish to move your digitized slides to a DVD, CD or flash drive. See a video demonstration of the slide converter on YouTube.
Convert Film Negatives
Turn film negatives into digital images!
Convert all your film slides and negatives into digital images. All 35mm (photo & archive), 127, 126, 110 slides/negatives, regular 8mm and Super 8 film negatives can be converted into 20 megapixel digital JPEG images to share and preserve. See a video introduction for the film type digital converter on YouTube.
