Our film transfer service is truly remarkable, thanks to our cutting-edge equipment and expertise. Our equipment uses a flicker-free capture process, without contact with your images, to capture each and every frame of your film. Our high-definition movie scanner, designed at the request of the Academy of Motion Picture Film Archives in Hollywood, is truly unique.
Our film scanner uses a two-motor design with direct drive take up and rewind, combined with no sprockets, no advance claw, co-capstan, no pinch roller, no belts, and no gears! This allows for a smooth and seamless transfer process. Our system uses a long-life super bright LED light source that does not create a hot spot, and there is no heat on the equipment or your film, so it will never blister your film! Even if your film has experienced shrinkage, broken sprocket holes, or bad splices, our equipment will navigate the film path with ease.
Our Retro units also have a built-in high-resolution, machine-vision pick-up that scans in full 24 bit (8:8:8) using industry-standard square pixel orientation. This means that your family films will be transferred with the utmost clarity and precision.
We offer a range of output options, including DVD or Blu-ray. Typically, we pull all of your films (up to about 1800 feet) into a single project and clean up the ends of the films, add titles, music or narration, and scene selection, and more. You can view your project online and dictate any edits or enhancements that you would like. Once finalized, we export it to a playable DVD or Blu-ray. This is an easy-to-view option where you just put the disk into a DVD or Blu-ray player connected to your TV or play it on your computer.
We also offer video file export options. You can export the final project to a video file, which can then be put up on the “cloud” to share, save it on your external and play it on your computer or modern TV. You will typically receive an mp4 file, but we can do other file types as well. We can also provide you with a compressed file of all or a portion of your footage to share via email, Facebook, YouTube, or other social media.
For those of you who want to edit your footage from the comfort of your home computer, we offer raw unedited film footage as mov files. And if you want a huge file of every frame of your film saved as a jpg, we can do that too! With this file, you can print out a still photo of every frame of your original film. Trust our film transfer service for a seamless and professional transfer of your precious family memories.
