A new PMP showroom and editing suite has been constructed from the garage, this allows Dave's collection of models to be displayed and released the small bedroom upstairs which was formerly used for editing. We were fully active through the Corona Pandemic, filming when and where possible and preparing lots of archive features. We are proud to have been key workers ( media ). Daily blogs are copied to our Facebook page.
We now have a new super computer to work with graphic improvements to moving image files, this has proved to be a bit of a trauma getting comparability with external storage drives, work though is ongoing, scanning several film collections. For commercial use of PMP items these facilities are on the shop page. We can also assist with access to the OTA collections.
We have nearly finished our first archive colourised film on Merseyside 1920s-70's. The process works really well but takes two days to process 46 minutes. We are upgrading films to 60fps and to Ultra HD. This will never show on a DVD but will be on the shop as a download and clips on Youtube where possible. Our 1989/90 Merseyside has been upgraded and is on Youtube and as a download on the shop. All new DVDs are on as downloads in HD.
We shall be working towards being all digital by 16th March 2032 when we shall cease all the heavy work and just be downloads or streaming whatever is the latest technique then. We are finding it very hard taking the PMP stand to events and very much limiting this although we will possibly visit more around the country just to film.
The old PMP Editing computer is now back in service as we have a lot of old analogue film to download to digital before we can process it. The editing suite seems to grow . See photo
