ITV's Content Delivery Supervisor, James Macmillan and his team, rapidly turned around a large film digitisation project for us recently, utilising their groundbreaking Steenbeck 16mm and 35mm 4K digitisers, the only ones in the U.K.
The project is for our upcoming charity Documentary, "Return To Crossroads", which charts the history of ITV's legendary serial 'Crossroads', with new unseen interviews with cast and crew.
Dozens of reels up to 50 years old, were rapidly digitised and restored by the ITV Content Delivery team. Outstanding care and attention to detail was provided, removing dust and digitising the delicate film, along with colour correction. They also very quickly turned around a can containing a complex nest of trims within 24 hours. The content was delivered to our specification with fast, secure online delivery, all of which was at a competitive price. We were kept informed of progress at every stage of the project. James and his team were extremely accommodating. Thank you guys for your superb service and support!
We highly recommend ITV's Content Delivery service to prospective clients.

James and his team at ITV Content Delivery run the most efficient organized and effective archive and video content delivery system I have ever seen. We have sent hundreds of orders through this system and not one problem. They are the best in the business and, with the incredible state of the art film processing system they are already working with some of our clients to provide a really very viable post production facility. Our clients in Hollywood have been very impressed. The icing on the cake is that they are lovely people and we are very proud to be partnered with them.
We were delighted and impressed with the efficient and friendly service from the ITV Content Delivery team. I felt that they cared about their work and were very communicative which was very helpful as we are based in London. A delight to work with and I would relish the opportunity to use their services again for future productions.
We've been really impressed with the work ITV Content Delivery have been doing for us in the past few months. The quality of their output has always been high, but the speed at which they've completed our film and tape transfers has been very impressive, even with the tightest of deadlines. They're honest, realistic and most importantly, a real pleasure to work with.
I can’t sing the praises of ITV Content Delivery highly enough. No matter how complicated my projects are and how tight the deadlines, the CD team always go the extra mile to accommodate my requests. Whether transferring film, tape or file their work is always completed to a high standard. The staff are knowledgeable, approachable and communicate with me throughout the process, ensuring I know exactly what stage my projects are at. I know without a doubt that the ITN ClipSales business would not run as smoothly as it does without CD.
When I needed to view, assess and transfer up to 70 x 35mm (30 year old) film cans of varying length and condition, ITV Content Delivery were fantastically professional and accommodating. James and the team were understanding and flexible to the changing needs of my project and they kept me well informed of costs and issues. When the job turned out to be more complex (many cans requiring repair/re-splicing) they were still able to meet my budget and delivery deadline expectations. ITV Content Delivery is competitive and great value and I would not hesitate to recommend it.
