Background: PS Video (short for Perfect Shot Video) was a video conversion company based in Auckland, New Zealand, focusing on converting 8mm recordings to cassette, as well as editing them (per request of the customer). The company later expanded to archiving old films and releasing family/children's films, and became popular for their multi feature (multiple films in one tape) releases. They shut down in early-2001 after their headquarters were set on fire and the staff lacked insurance to pay for the damages.
