Quality is an important aspect of any digitization process. We here at The Digitize Center digitize all items at source quality, meaning we try to digitize any item at the same exact quality it was originally recorded at. This is not exactly an easy process but our custom engineered software and equipment make it possible. Legacybox claims to digitize at the same quality. However, one thing we do that Legacybox does not is name the digitized files according to the customer's wishes. So if you label a VHS tape as Christmas 1994, the digitized file will be named the same.

Winner on Quality: The Digitize Center, slightly

We have never gone over the 4 week mark in finishing an order thanks to our SmartTech Workflow System.
