If you are looking for the highest quality 16mm or 35mm transfer, you found it. We specialize in professional film scanning of 16mm and 35mm film at SD, HD and 2K (1556) and 4K (3112) resolution. For the best HD video quality we recommend the Pro 2K scan. Over sampling your film is always a good idea in order to get the best quality. So, to get the best looking SD video you want to scan at HD. To get he best HD video you want to scan at 2K. Our new film restoration technologies can not only reverse the aging effects (color and exposure degradation) but can also make your film look better than it ever was (grain removal and stabilization). All this for about 1/3 the rate charged at a typical professional lab in New York or LA.

Film shrinks over the decades. So running your film today through a projector or film transfer machine that uses the sprocket holes will damage the film. We get several calls a day about people damaging their film by trying to run it through a projector. Same goes for these low-end film transfer machines used by local camera and video conversion shops and even the big box stores like Walmart, Costco and Walgreens. Make sure your film is scanned on a sprocketless roller based film scanner. Luckily Video Conversion Experts can help. Damaged sprocket holes? Shrunk film? No problem and we won't damage your film!

Does your 16mm or 35mm film have 2K resolution? Absolutely. Even old 16mm film can have up to 2K lines of resolution. Newer or negative 16mm film has more than 2K resolution. Older 35mm film can have up to 4K lines of resolution. Newer or negative 35mm has more than 4K resolution.

16mm film has 2K horizontal lines of resolution. In order to archive the film a 2k (2048 vertical ×1556 horizontal) scan is required. Our Pro 2K service scans the film at 2k and down converts it to give you the best looking HD video or SD DVD possible. This is a trick Hollywood has played for years. They start with a high resolution scan of 35mm film at either 2k or 4k. They then down convert and compress it to DVD or BluRay. Only a small fraction of the visual quality is lost during a down conversion because there is so must more data when the video is down converted and compressed they can make a much better looking DVD or BluRay. A DVD from a 2k scan will look 2-3 times better than a DVD from a 480 line film scanner (DVD has 480 horizontal lines of resolution). So, we can play the same trick to give you a great looking DVD or BluRay from your 16mm film.

The same can be said of 35mm film to DVD or BluRay. By scanning the film at 4k we can make a DVD or BluRay look much better than if we scanned the 35mm film at SD resolution.

We can professional scan 16mm film, Super 16mm film, 35mm film and Super 35mm film to DVD, AVI files, BluRay, HD-AVI, HD ProRes HQ. 16mm film to DVD and 35mm film to DVD are the most common film transfer service we perform.

We are not only known for our professional film transfer services but also for our Pro Hollywood restoration technology we use to make our film conversion services the best in the business.
