A fixation with perfection
SINCE 2012


A fixation with perfection
SINCE 2012

DIGIRAW was born out of one man's digital media obsession. Founder Chris Rayner started backing up his DVDs towards the end of the 90s to protect his disc investment and play his collection on his laptop when away on business.

By 2007 Apple had launched its 1st-generation set-top streaming device, namely the Apple TV. This little streamer empowered Chris to browse and play his digital content on his TVs over his home network using iTunes and laptops.

Over the years, alternative media server software hit the market along with different streaming devices. Chris tried them all, favouring Plex, Emby, and Infuse using the Apple TV and NVIDIA Shield TV hardware. Further development witnessed the release of iOS and Android apps for smartphones and tablets.

Armed with the knowledge Chris gained over the years, it was no surprise he was being asked to help others. As a result, his hobby started generating income, and by 2012 Chris departed the multi-million-pound company he founded within the security ID Card sector. He was now able to focus on his home-media passion full-time.

Chris started out converting disc collections for private and commercial clients in the UK and worldwide, including AV specifiers and installers. He also supports Superyachts and Private Jets with offline low-cost media entertainment systems.

Today, nobody can match Chris' obsession and experience when it comes to disc-to-digital home media solutions. That's why, when you book his service, you have the confidence of knowing it's Chris who'll be taking care of it. In Chris' world, only the best will do.

His reputation has seen him travel extensively over the years. Converting, designing and installing private VoD solutions for owners who recognise the value of dependable, high-quality streaming. He never disappoints.

Whether you need only your discs ripping, or a complete turnkey streaming solution for your home, cinema room or yacht, Chris will see that your media gets the treatment it deserves and the playback experience you desire.

The pandemic brought forward Chris' dream of working from home and losing the commute to an office, so he finally commissioned his long-awaited garden office. With restrictions easing, he now welcomes appointment only client demonstrations, including his budget-focussed 120inch automated home 4K (UHD) home cinema with Atmos and DTS:X surround sound.
