Will my film to DVD transfer look as good as my film?

That's a great question and one that most customer's should be asking when they do their research. In decades past the answer was no. The film to DVD machines weren't good enough to capture the full resolution and dynamic range of the film. Today, if the company spends the money on good, high quality film scanners, you can get nearly as good or better than the film.

Your film is around 800 to 1000 lines of resolution. Even a professional scanner will have some loss in the scanning process. Any non professional real-time or frame by frame machine will have considerable loss in the film scanning process. This is why you need to have your film converted to DVD using a motion picture film scanner or Datacine machine. This will ensure that your film conversion project results in a DVD that looks nearly as good or better than the original film.

DVD is the most common format we transfer film to. But, there are many of formats we can transfer 8mm, Super 8 and 16mm film to. For example, we can transfer film to BluRay, AVI, MOV, ProRes and the ultimate format, DPX. If you are looking for the best quality film to DVD transfer, you've found it. We use the world's best motion picture film scanners for your 8mm, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm film.
