There are multiple factors that affect quality and what can be done to improve it, if the quality is down to the VHS player you have viewed the tape on then it will be improved on our high quality well maintained video players, however if there is an inhernet problem with the tape the quality is usually improved by a marginal amount when it is digitised, this is not always the case and the tape has significant quality issues then we will be unable to improve it. Tapes that are too dark can be lightened up a certain amount.
As far as sound we can replace sountracks however we cannot seperate background noise from the main audio, this would need a sound engineer.
