DO YOU WANT YOUR MOST PRECIOUS MEMORIES PRESERVED PROPERLY?
Absolute Highest Quality Film, Video, Image and Audio Recovery, Transfer, Restoration and PreservationWe specialise in the absolute highest quality film, video, image and audio recovery, transfer and restoration possible as well as mass production of optical discs (CD, DVD, Bluray). Once transferred and restored, we preserve your memories on modern digital media for families and companies wishing to protect and enjoy their audio visual memories. People like you search us out when they want the absolute best quality film, video, image and audio recovery, transfer and restoration rather than second best, or when nobody else can do the job. Absolute highest quality means that we only have one quality and it is the best possible. They also search us out when they have had an inferior job done elsewhere and now want it done properly.
The latest equipment is not enoughFor us, having the latest equipment is not enough. Where the technology doesn't exist, we create it. We have developed our own equipment, parts, software and processes that are not available elsewhere in order to reach our high standard. In every detail from the largest machine to the smallest cable, we use the very best possible quality. No low end equipment such as automated recorders or consumer disc creation hardware or software is used in any of our processes. This ensures a higher quality for you.
Every technician is an expertWe use a combination of the very best automated processes and highest skilled human operators to ensure the highest possible quality. Every disc is quality reviewed and visually inspected before it leaves the laboratory.
Each team member is a professional trained in a specific area of the production process. He or she becomes an expert in that area. They may be employed to scan cine film or stills or capture video, to edit video or film or stills, to restore it or to create your discs. Each person develops an expertise in excess of what one person doing the whole process could possibly hope to achieve. This better knowledge of each part of the process sets us aside from lower quality operations.
Consumer software is not enoughConsumer software used throughout the industry results in loss of quality and incompatibility in certain players.
As such, DVD Infinity do not use it. Instead, we only use professional software. We use highest quality Hollywood grade (rather than consumer) compression, optimise it to the nearest minute (rather than the nearest hour) and limit the compression to 100 mins per DVD. What this means to you is better quality (especially in areas capturing movement).
Images from your film, video or still and a title of your choice are elegantly printed on your discs and cover at Hollywood (rather than consumer) quality. Chapter points are expertly selected and inserted at logical breaks rather than every X minutes. Scene selections are inserted at appropriate rather than preset or random points(created by skilled operators) on all Deluxe packages. Our discs even come with an opening scene, just like the Hollywood Blockbusters, as a stamp of our high quality.
Only the best materials are usedInferior quality media and/or printing methods means lower quality, incompatibility and shorter life. Inkjet printed discs are often varnished to stop them from running. However, the varnish causes the discs to crack over time. Paper labels peel causing the weight to be unequally distributed and causing the discs to stop playing properly. Inferior quality media may only last a few years. Even cases can make a difference with cheaper ones breaking easily and containing inferior locking mechanisms making discs difficult to remove.
Many operators use lower quality media and print methods to reduce cost at the expense of quality whilst others offer higher quality media at an added expense.
We use only the highest quality media (rated to 100 years) not the ones sold in your local electronics store, highest quality thermal printing directly on your discs and highest quality full colour laser printed slicks inserted into highest quality super clear cases. For you, this means higher quality, longer lasting discs and full compatibility.

Whilst in 2004, Australian Mac World noted us as being the Best Solution Provider for transfer of film, we have improved in leaps and bounds since then.
With support for more film, video, image and audio formats than any other organisation in Australia, we have more experience recovering, transferring, restoring and preserving them. We can only do this with a wealth of knowledge that is not available from any other company in Australia. For you that translates as better quality.
Not just a Transfer Mill - The Standard for Professional Film, Video, Images and Audio TransferWe do not just transfer or convert your source material to disc. Instead, we ensure each image is given individual attention to bring out its best. Its not just having the best equipment, hardware, software, people and materials. We bake magnetic tapes where necessary and optimise the video or audio signal. We cut out the stuff that absolutely nobody wants to preserve. After all, what's the point of preserving a bunch of static filled or blank video tape, blurry or flickering cine film, or faded or underexposed slides? Likewise, what sort of person, professional or company would settle for second best? We professionally create your high quality DVDs and Blurays from cine film(Super 8, Standard 8, Single 8, 9.5mm & 16mm), video(broadcast, professional and domestic video formats), photos, 35mm slides and negatives. We offer full editing and authoring options. For business, government and other organisations, we offer full enterprise archiving and digital migration strategy consulting. Whether one tape, film or slide, or an entire library, we are here to help you.
There are many operators who claim to do the same as DVD Infinity. The truth is that there is only one DVD Infinity and NOBODY does the same as DVD Infinity does and NOBODY obtains the quality.
Convenient Film, Video, Audio and Image Transfer ServiceWe have convenient locations around Sydney with easy access from Central Coast, Illawarra and Canberra. If you are flying in from interstate or overseas, we have an office with easy rail access from Sydney airport. Whilst, we have had customers drive from Perth and ride a motorcycle from Brisbane, and take planes from all around the world to come and see us. However, this is the exception.
We also provide fully tracked and signed for delivery on all orders we send and in over 15 years have never had any lost or damaged.
People from all around the world trust DVD Infinity more than any other Australian company, to provide highest quality results in digital recovery, transfer, restoration and preservation of film, video, images and audio, and we never let them down.
Our Unprecedented Attention to Detail in Film, Video, Image and Audio Transfer and RestorationOur technicians are perfectionists with acute eyes for detail. We bring out the very best possible from your materials. Nothing less is acceptable. Whether it is optimising a video signal on a 40 year old video, scanning 90 year old cine film or designing a custom menu system, we always go that little bit further. If a video needs to go across multiple discs, we don't just cut your wedding video in the middle of the wedding vows, your child's birthday just before he blows out a candle or in the middle of a corporate presenter's speech. All the products we produce undergo a strict quality control procedure (including visual and digital checks) to ensure highest possible standards. After all, we are handcrafting your masterpiece not just transferring data, and that masterpiece will be around for a long time to come. Furthermore, from the time we take possession of your materials, we treat them with the same respect we treat our own.
Flexibility in Film, Video, Image and Audio Transfer and RestorationWe are able to mix different formats of film, video and stills in any order to achieve what you want. So if you want some footage from an 8mm film reel and then some footage from a Betamax video tape, followed by a slideshow from slides and negatives with audio from an old quarter inch audio reel with grandma singing on a Bluray disc - no problem! We can then create customised menus on your discs as you wish. We have the flexibility to make any requirement possible come to life.
Care for your Film, Video, Images and Audio MaterialsAll orders are processed in Australia so your order is not lost in a 3rd world country. Each order is issued a tracking code used to track it through our process. Our factory is climate controlled, secured like Fort Knox and every effort is in place to keep your materials as secure as possible. Every order whether sent back by us domestically or internationally requires a signature on receipt and provides full tracking. We are specialists in converting and transferring your priceless memories and take care to ensure that nothing harms any of the materials submitted and that they are returned in exactly the same condition as we receive them. We treat your film, video, images and audio as though they are our own. For you, this means peace of mind.
