Breathe new life into your disc collection
Since 2012 we have been ripping clients CDs, DVDs, Blu-ray and 4K (UHD) disc collections into an organised, searchable directory for playing on computers, TVs, Home Theatres, Home Cinemas and mobile devices. Your digital media is titled and tagged so that your screens populate with rich content-specific information.
Instantly access your entire digital library on all of your devices using one of the many feature-rich app players like Infuse 7, and home media servers such as Plex.
If you don't have the time, motivation, equipment and software to format-shift your physical media personally, hiring DIGIRAW's decade long experience is a great way to go.
Most of our clients courier their physical media to us, but you are welcome to drop your media down to us by appointment.
Depending on your order value and location, we can also offer a personal collection and return service.
Lead times can vary according to the size of your disc library and our order book at the time, but typically we complete within two weeks.
We convert your physical media to a USB drive. You then transfer your new disc-to-digital video files to your computer or NAS and then store it safely as a backup.
Download your preferred "free or freemium" media server such as Plex or Emby to your computer or NAS. Then populate with your video files. For Apple devices you can opt for the Infuse 7 Player with out needing a media server.
Install the various apps specific to your chosen media server. You are now ready to start streaming your digital content to your TVs, home theatre and mobile devices.

It's DVDs and Blu-ray discs the way you have always desired. All your favourite movies and TV shows backed up, future-proofed and playing on all your screens. Instant play without warnings, adverts and unwanted trailers.
All your devices are very at home with a stereo audio file, while your home theatre craves superior surround sound. We include multiple audio tracks for your mp4, including uncompressed DTS and DTS-MA/HD as per your disc.
Opt for MKV, and if your disc has TrueHD, Atmos or DTS-X (object-based sound), we will include that first-class uncompressed sound option too.
Stunning picture perfect quality, Blu-ray HD preservation, and for your 4K titles, we maintain HDR (High Dynamic Range) when present.
Disc-to-Digital is never a compromise; it's convenient, future-proofing and de-cluttering. In fact, many choose to convert their discs to preserve and improve quality when compared to compressed titles from streaming services.
Converting your disc collection to digital is a resource heavy and intense process requiring skills gained through years of service. The result is a superior disc-to-digital library that you will enjoy for decades to come, and all at the touch of a button or voice command.
Activating and deactivating subtitles is an MKV container feature. For the popular MP4, we can burn in the subtitles available on disc full-time, perfect for your foreign titles.
We pay particular attention to forced subtitles (also known as soft subtitles) so that periodic foreign or alien Sci-Fi speaking scenes are displayed automatically.
Metadata such as cover art, plot summary, cast, directors, year, genre, ratings, season numbers, and episode numbers and names are essential information empowering offline media servers such as iTunes to populate all fields across all your devices. Your titles will look and behave just as if you had purchased them from the iTunes Store directly.
N.B. You will not be able to upload your MP4 videos to iCloud. iCloud services for media are reserved for Apple's own content only.
MP4 or MKV? Either way, you get no warnings, trailers or menus to navigate, just the fun and enjoyment of instant play.
Our studio will create your MKV as a 1:1 clone of the film or episodes and capture all audio (DTS, TrueHD, Atmos & DTS-X), language and subtitles presented by your disc which can be selected manually and automatically by most media servers and devices. Our process excludes trailers, warnings and bonus footage.

While video on demand (VoD) providers play a popular role in satisfying our media consumption, your DIGIRAW ripping service is popular because…
Your hand-picked favourite films and TV shows are always available.
Specialist content collectors are rarely able to source from VoD providers.
Restrictions, such as DRM, prevent you playing purchased content on other branded devices.
It costs less to hire DIGIRAW to convert the titles you already own on disc, rather than repurchase them from a VoD seller.
VoD providers expire content you didn't get round to watching. Even more frustrating is losing the chance to finish a show.
Your physical collection is large enough to cut the cord, and you prefer to maintain your library as a selective viewer.
VoD sellers remove content without notice because of license changes or expiration.
The content you purchase in one country doesn't always play when visiting another due to licensing constraints.
Your internet service is slow, unreliable or unavailable for VoD services.
Bandwidth charges with an uncapped internet service can be costly.
Overzealous compression techniques adopted by VoD providers fail your required audio and video quality standards.
Multiple VoD services are proving costly and looking for something to watch is taking longer and longer.
Special discounts available on 200+ discs.
