Videostation is a film and video transfer company based in New Zealand. The mission of the company is to provide high quality images at affordable rates.
Our company was founded in the UK during the late 1970's when we used machines such as the Cintel Telecine as pictured on the left. We moved to New Zealand in 2009 and set up our transfer facilitities in Christchurch. After the Christchurch earthquakes we were forced to move premises and settled in the North Canterbury township of Kaiapoi.
We were one of the first companies in the world to use a professional film transfer machine to transfer 8mm movie film for production use. Back then we were converting films for productions on David Niven, Sir John Mills, Peter Cooke, Lonnie Donegan and many other famous people of years gone by.
One of our first professional projects was to convert the home movies of the late Sir John Mills for a UK production "Moving Memories" and later home movie footage to be used in documentaries on Anne Frank, Dad's Army and The Beatles.
Videostation pioneered and developed a specialised gate to facilitate the transfer of small format film known as the V3 and is now the industry standard for all modern film transfer equipment. Before this it could only be done with old fashioned projectors and cameras.
Today we transfer countless footage for film archives, production companies, museums, plus of course the general public not only in New Zealand, but Australia, USA, UK and the rest of the world.
We look forward to helping you with your video and film transfer needs.
