Aircheck / Clipfinder

To help you find your scenes, Astral offers affordable Aircheck and Clipfinder services through its web site. With a TV aircheck, you tell us when your show is airing and we'll convert your scenes to a digital file for editing. Even if your show has already aired, Astral searches available video collections to serve its clients with HD quality video. High definition video from 720p up to 1080i is our goal, not low quality file sharing video.
