This investment of around £100,000 by the facility has been prompted by demand from television clients. "An increasing number of producers have seen the benefit of restoring existing video footage for use in broadcast productions," said TMR managing director Danny Whybrow.
"The increase in broadcast TV channels in recent years has seen the demand for content reach new levels and archive footage plays a key part in an increasing number of high-profile productions," he added.
The kit will also be used to meet the film and HD and SD video restoration demands of archive clients and content owners. The addition of the Teranex Image Restore system means the company can now offer everything from physical film treatment processes and electronic HD and SD scratch and dirt removal to noise reduction, stabilisation and format/resolution conversion.
The facility has already picked up a number of projects on the back of the purchase, including feature film and documentary work.
