Sound & video services

We can preserve your old recordings, or provide talks and training.

Do you have precious material stored on vinyl records, open reel tapes, and cassette and video tapes or other outdated media?

We offer an affordable way to digitise this material for preservation. Email ero.enquiry@essex.gov.uk or fill in an enquiry form to request a quote.

Our clients trust us to treat their precious recordings with the same care and attention we give to our own collections – and to produce the same high quality results.
