SPECIAL DIGITAL DUBBING SERVICE HELPS FUNDRAISE FOR NEW DIGITAL ARTS STUDIO

Do you have special memories on Video Tape, CD and DVD that you now can't access because you don't have the equipment anymore?

Do you want to make sure all your precious memories are safe and sound, backed up on a hard drive or securely online for you to share with family and friends?

Lake House has the answer.  Until Christmas Lake House Arts offers a digital dubbing service in Studio 2 for as little as $10 per Tape/Disc to convert you precious memories onto digital platforms.  Your info can be saved to flashdrive, hardrive, SD card or loaded online with secure links that only you and those you share with will have access to.  We can set up a private youtube or vimeo channel for you and upload video and photo content there for you to veiw and share whenever you want.

All money raised from these efforts will go toward the planned creation of a digital arts studio at Lake House Arts Centre, which is planned to launch in March 2018.

All enquiries should be made to manager@lakehousearts.org.nz, or you can drop in you tapes/discs directly to the managers office anytime during operating hours.
