THE PERSONAL TOUCH

Included in your price is the editing of blue, blank and snowy screens that may appear at the beginning and end of your videos and the transcription of handwritten labels into digital files and DVDs. We also won’t charge you for blank tapes, duplicates and accidental TV recordings.

FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS

Robert Webb and his daughter, Candice, started Charter Oak in 2014, truly believing in family moments. Three years later the father-daughter team have grown their family to include a great team of creatives who also believe in the importance of family and the value those captured moments have.

TRUSTED & U.S. BASED

We have digitized millions of analog items and we can happily say that we have never lost a customers order. We will answer your calls, respond to your emails (even on the weekend) and answer any of your questions until you are comfortable and satisfied. Your project will receive the respect care that it and you deserve.

BEYOND DVDs

A lot of our competition convert directly to DVD, without any digital record or ability to edit and optimize your converted video. We digitize to computers using the best equipment. DVDs are great storage medium, but just like VHS tapes and film, they’re on their way to extinction.

BRINGING THE PAST TO LIFE

Charter Oak Scanning was founded on the conviction to restore – to revalue to what has been devalued.
We are led by the desire to find simple, technology and design-driven ways to reconnect people with things that matter most, but that are being lost.

WHY DO FAMILIES CHOOSE CHARTER OAK?

High Tech Service Meets Old-Fashioned Service.

The people at Charter Oak Scanning did 8 boxes of families photos for me, from 1900 – 2004. They did a great job, made the process easy, and were friendly besides. Highly recommended.

Prompt attention and good results on a variety of media: 33-rpm records, VHS, cassette. When they were unable to transfer some very old 78-rpm records, they cheerfully refunded the cost of that portion of my order.

Jordan B.Massachusetts

Timely, Friendly, Helpful and Knowledgeable. Brought 40 year old films and 3/4 inch video back to digital life!! Professional work. I look forward to restoring more memories with them in the future.

Thomas G.Connecticut

These guys went above and beyond , very professional in their work and the manner in which they do business. You rarely see this degree of customer service in any industry anymore… These guys bent over backwards on a purchase under $50.
