How Many "Pieces (PC)" do I Have?

If you’ve been thinking about getting your collection of tapes, films, cassettes, or photos digitized, good for you! Digitization is the only way to ensure that your analog media survives the test of time and various forms of damage. The sensitive materials in analog media content are very susceptible to damage from extreme temperatures, water, fire, and mold growth.

Digitization creates digital copies of your media, ensuring that your precious home movies and pictures are safe and backed up to your computer or cloud drive. 
At Kodak Digitizing, we offer digitization of many different media formats that fall under four major categories: tape, film, audio, and photo. Here is a list of the specific brands that we can process at our facility:

 

Tapes
Films
Audio
Photos
VHS
8mm
Audio cassette
Prints
VHS-C
16mm
Cassette tape
35mm slides
MiniDV
Compact cassette
Negatives
Hi8
Reel-to-reel
Digital 8
MicroMV
Betamax
Pal NTSC

 

To make our ordering process simpler for our customers, we have created a package ordering system based on how many pieces (abbreviated to PC) of a particular format or formats you want to send in for digitization. Here’s how it works:

 
If you have...
that equals
1 tape...
1 PC
1 film reel...
1 PC
1 audio cassette...
1 PC
25 photos/slides/or negatives...
1 PC

 

Our starter box is a 2 PC package, and we also have packages accommodating 10, 20 and 40 pieces. You can mix and match formats, as long as you order a package large enough to accommodate the pieces you send in. For example - if you want to send in one VHS tape and 25 photos, you would need the 2 PC starter package. 


We hope that this information was helpful in your ordering process, and if you ever have any questions about digitization, ordering, shipping, or anything else, you can always call our customer service representatives who will be happy to help. Thank you so much for choosing Kodak to digitize your memories!
