Why choose AV Workshop?
AV Workshop has been in business for over 30 yrs and has never lost a client’s master or keepsake. Every staff member at AV Workshop has a B.A. Degree in this field. Since we have a storefront in the San Francisco Bay Area, you can walk in and drop your project off in person.

Do you ship work out like most other shops or do it there?
We do all work in house. Unlike small camera stores and big box stores like Costco, we perform all work right here in our Redwood City Lab. You can rest easy knowing your project will never leave our shop.

How long does it take?
Depending on the type of work / media you have, it will take between 1 day and 4 weeks. However, most jobs are turned within 1-2 weeks.

Can I ship my project to you?
Absolutely, you can order through our online store. You will receive instructions on how and where to ship your project. Orders over $175 qualify for FREE (Round Trip) shipping. For orders below $175, order through our shopping cart and ship it to our address. There is a return shipping fee of $12. You will be notified both when we receive your order and when it ships out. Furthermore, we keep a digital copy of your project backed up on our server for a couple wks after it ships out.

SHOP NEWS

100 Hours of Vintage Racing Videos Digitally Preserved

AV Workshop recently transferred 100 hours of Vintage Racing VHS tapes to DVD.

AV Workshop ran the precious recordings through our freshly updated video transfer equipment. Both AV machine rooms have recently been updated and are setup with a large number of high-end JVC S-VHS VCRs. These decks are the best playback source for VHS tapes, especially VHS tapes recorded in EP. High end JVC S-VHS decks have a built in TBC and Video Stabilization filter to stabilize a weak and unstable video.

Once the videotapes were digitized, we applied Level Optimization and Noise reduction to the audio. Each video was then edited to remove unwanted TV snow, and irrelevant content from the beginning and end. Thus, every DVD is just racing! Con’t Reading…

12,000 Photos Scanned / Preserved to Digital

AV Workshop recently scanned 12,000 photos for a customer. Every photo was cleaned by hand with a microfiber cloth, scanned at 300 dpi, enhanced in Photoshop, and organized by date.

Every photo was enhanced in Photoshop to improve color and exposure. Every section and box was labeled in order by date / provided info and put on a USB Flash Drive. This USB Flash Drive can be plugged into any computer (MAC / PC) or Smart TV.

As a result, the customer’s precious family photo archive is now preserved and accessible for generations to come! Con’t Reading…
