Retrospective digitization

We are happy to support you with the digitisation of old video recordings (for example, from VHS tapes to DVDs) and with the digitisation of analog photos (paper prints up to DIN A4, standard negative film strips and framed slides can be processed).
Please note that retro-digitisation is only possible in the context of research and teaching and that we need your declaration on the processing and publication of multimedia content in order to reproduce your content.
With our support, you can carry out the retro-digitization yourself in the RRZK.
