Media Preserve has been in business for over 40 years.  We may not always have been know by that name but we have been around for a very long time.  Our Production Studios “Illusion Productions” have been in operation since 1982 and we as a Media Preserve company have been in operation since 1976.

We specialize in preserving media that eventually will become too old to be useful.  Our process is State of the Art and actually enhances the quality of the original depending on how degraded the original is.  We never over process any media transfer but we do improve the audio and video signals to achieve a better clarity when needed.  Once the digital processing is done and we feel that we have captured the best possible representation of the original or better, we master the new information onto your choice of new media storage formats.  The most common formats for currently preserving restored and transferred media are the following:
