We've expanded our transfer capabilities

PM Productions has recently added broadcast 3/4" umatic SP and Betacam SP to the list of formats that we can transfer.  We can transfer videotapes recorded in 3/4", Betacam SP, Betamax, VHS, VHS-C, Mini-DV, Hi-8 and DVCAM formats.  Audio can be transferred from 1/4" reel-to-reel audiotape, audio cassettes and microcassettes as well as LP, 45 and 78 rpm records.  We offer scanning services for photos and negatives up to 8x10", slides and even microfilm.

Corporate and Commercial Production

We all know that the economy is tight. Businesses have to cut expenses wherever they can.  An in-house video department is viewed as a luxury that few small-to-medium sized businesses can afford anymore.  

PM Productions can help.  We can be the next best thing to having your own in-house video department, but without the overhead.  Whether you have a month long project making a series of training videos or just an afternoon duplicating DVDs for next week's shareholders meeting - you hire us only for the time that you need.  There's no long term commitment and no ongoing overhead.  Even if you do have your own video department we can help to extend your reach into the central Illinois area.

Corporate Media Archiving

Most orgainizations manage to accumulate a large collection of media files over the years.  Many of your valuable films, audiotapes and videos of your early history are recorded in formats that are no longer in use.  Rather than just throw away those historical records, PM Productions can convert your old films, videotapes, audio cassettes, reel to reel tapes, slides and photographs to more modern forms such as DVDs, CDs or digital files suitable for storage on hard drives, USB sticks, LTO backup tapes or cloud storage.  

Transfers Done In-House

Don't risk shipping your valuable films and videos out of town-all transfers are done right in our office.

Coming soon to Social Media

PM Productions will soon be coming to Facebook and Twitter.
