Digitising audio formats for the future to disc or hard drive

While photographs and videos are important memories to keep for the future, there's also a vast number of important audio recordings on various formats to be saved.

ProCopy digitises and enhances audio from old formats such as 78 inch records including World War 2 message discs, Vinyl LPs, singles and acetates. 

We can also transfer a variety of Reel to Reel tapes including 1/4inch, Half track, 1/4 Track, stereo or mono and audio cassettes.

We'll assess your recordings and advise on the best way to proceed with digitising your collection of audio recordings. We usually recommend digitising to the highest quality possible (CD Audio standard or the equivalent Wav file format) and then providing "down converted" audio as Mp3 or similar for your personal devices or sharing via email or storing in "the cloud". Files can also be transferred to USB flash drives so that you can play them in modern car media players.

Note: many companies and a lot of home based equipment produce direct conversions to Mp3 or other compressed audio formats and you will lose the quality of your original recordings. It takes longer to do the job properly but it does produce the best results.

We are happy to receive records and tapes via post to our PO Box but highly recommend that you send via a trackable service such as Express Post and make sure that the audio tapes, records or reels are securely packaged to prevent possible damage in transit. 

For further details call or email our staff on 08 9375 3902 or email info@procopy.com.au

Video and Film Conversions to Hard Drive, Usb Flash Drive or Disc

While DVDs are a convenient format for playing back and storing your family video memories we get more and more enquiries about transferring videos and films to Hard Drives and USB flash drives.

ProCopy can transfer just about any film or video format to hard drive or flash memory including 8 & 16mm film, Pathe film, and Super8, As well as most video camera tape formats and professional or broadcast formats.

Film reel transfers

We can give you the option of high quality uncompressed file formats such as AVI, or convenient formats such as MP4 which are Mac & PC compatible, .Mov files for Mac editing or smaller file formats such as WMV and Mpeg2

Once you have the files in a digital format you can edit your own videos, store them "in the Cloud" or upload them to Youtube.

If you don't have the ability to edit or transfer them, ProCopy can also provide you with BluRay or DVD copies of your content edited to your requirements and to keep securely for the future. 

We generally recommend having your video on at least 2 formats for safe keeping which is easy to do when digitised. Extra copies for the family of DVDs are very economical and we always verify every copy so that you can be sure that they are the same as the original transfer.

We are happy to receive tapes and films via post to our PO Box but highly recommend that you send via a trackable service such as Registered Express Post and make sure that the tapes or films are securely packaged to prevent possible damage in transit. 

For further details call or email our staff on 08 9375 3902 or email info@procopy.com.au

2014 ASSG Awards announced.

The ASSG Congratulates the Award Winners for 2014!

The 18th Australian Screen Sound Guild Awards were held on Sunday 23 November at The Establishment Hotel Ballroom in George Street, Sydney. Members travelled from WA, SA and Victoria to attend the awards.

The Syd Butterworth Lifetime Achievement Award was awarded to Lloyd Carrick. ASSG president Doron Kippen presented the award to Lloyd, praising his work which has spanned 48 years. Lloyd has worked on such films as Mad Max 2 and 3, Heatwave, The Lighthorsemen and Dead Calm. Lloyd received a standing ovation from the entire room.

The Greg Bell Student Encouragement Award was given to Callum Hedemann, a recent AFTRS graduate.


This year the ASSG honoured the late Andrew Plain by naming the Award for Best Film Sound Design after him. Andrew tragically passed away at the end of last year, not long after the 2013ASSG Awards were held.
