Digital Transfer Services
Unlike other digital transfer serves we process everything in house using top of the line equipment.
What We Transfer
8mm & super 8mm films, VHS, VHC, film negatives and other formats.
True Frame-By-Frame Transfer
Your film is captured frame-by-frame as each frame passes through a projector with an enlarged gate with a specialized LED light source in front of a half-inch 3CCD progressive scan camera.
The enlarged gate allows us to capture the entirety of the frame. As each frame passes through the projection gate, a picture is taken. These individual frames are put into specialized software that converts the frames into a movie, resulting in a solid, smooth, flicker-free capture. This process produces a higher-quality transfer and you will not lose anything from your original film.
Your Film is Cleaned and Lubricated
Each reel is individually cleaned and lubricated with Edwal Anti Static Film Cleaner. The film passes under a microfiber cloth that removes dust and debris that may have built up over the years. This helps keep the film hydrated and pliable while also filling in small scratches and giving the film a light protective coating. It makes your movies cleaner and brighter!
During this process, we inspect the film, add leader if necessary, and repair tears or bad splices. Also, at no extra cost we will combine up to 8 small 50ft reels together onto one large 400ft archival reel(s) for more compact and safe storage.
Unlike super bright projector bulbs that tend to blow out a picture, our specialized LED light source provides a softer and more realistic light. We also have the ability to control the brightness of each scene during capture of your film so that your darker scenes are brighter and your brighter scenes aren't blown out.
Our LED light source puts out much less heat than a projector bulb to eliminate the chance of film burn or hot spots on the movie.
Unlike an automated setup, we monitor your film as it is captured to be sure no dust or hairs get into the transfer. We watch the transfer on an LCD TV Monitor and keep clean, compressed air ready in case any debris gets into the film gate. This is a huge advantage over non frame-by-frame methods!
We then take your film into our professional editing consoles and convert your captured film to play at its original speed on your TV or computer. We will remove all of the blank footage. You are not charged for any of the blank footage.
