Memnon Digitization and Asset Preservation Services

Preserving your history


Whether it’s a speech by an important historical figure or iconic moments from broadcast sports, some of the most valuable parts of our shared cultural heritage are contained in audio and video recordings.

These audiovisual documents are fragile and it’s our responsibility to preserve, for the long-term, these records of our cultural legacy.

Memnon, a Sony Group Company, is a trusted provider of a range of services to digitise, restore, preserve and provide access to these recordings. We digitise all analogue formats from magnetic tape to vinyl record, as well as offering long-term storage of your precious audiovisual assets.

With our expertise, we can play a key role in preserving your history and ours.

Use it or lose it

Since 1951, videotape has been used to record many of the most memorable events and images in our lives. But it’s easy to overestimate the resilience of tape archives, and underestimate the difficulty of digitising them. The average media company has 100,000 tapes, with the average digitisation project taking three to four years. And because the degradation of magnetic tape cannot be stopped, the deadline for preserving your assets digitally is now.
