At Photoreal we offer conversion (digitalization) of popular video and audio cassette tapes and films on a reel into digital format: DVD disk or AudioCD or USB flash drive (in MP4/MOV/AVI/WMV or MP3/OGG format). Majority of the tapes are converted on our premises in Brooklyn, NY. Only films on the reel are outsourced to another company in NYC.
Please be advised, that:
if the tape is older than 25 years or if it has been stored in other than “cool and dry place” for a long time, than the quality of the audio and video on your tape / film will be bad in majority of the cases and it will be bad after we convert it to digital format;
we are not able to improve the quality of the audio and video, we convert “as is”.
We only convert audio and video cassette tapes and films on a reel from analog to digital format.
From 8AM until 3PM we take photos for passport, visa, driver’s license and other kinds of IDs for all countries (US, Canada, UK, Schengen zone, Russia, China, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and others) of people of all ages (newborn, infant, child, teenager, adult, senior).
We are also able to send you a digital copy of the photo by email or save it to your USB drive or memory card. Price for digital photo is specified below.
We are able to take a photo even if you are on a wheelchair.
We don’t take passport photos for Canada for children less than 2 years old.
We also take photos for these kinds of ID:
Court ID for Secure Pass
Reduced fare MetroCard
gun / pistol permit
driver’s license (including international driver’s license)

and others (you name it)
We don’t print passport and visa photos from email, because 99% of the time they don’t meet requirements. We encourage you to take photos at our place. It will take less than 10 minutes and will meet all the requirements.
We make custom photo slideshows with music on a DVD within 5-7 business days. Price depends on the number of photos and their condition (already digital or need to be scanned) and the number of music tracks that you want to use for slideshow. Rush orders can be done in 3 days for 20% extra.
