film to dvd conversion film to dvd transfer 8mm film to video
Transferring film to video requires the best and highest resolution film scanners in order to get 100% of the quality of the film on video. Many customers are unaware that when they transferred their film to video VHS tapes years ago that the VHS was only capable of keeping 25% of the resolution of the 8mm or Super 8 film.
If you are looking for the best quality film to video transfer, you've found it. We use the world's best and most expensive professional motion picture film scanners and Datacine machines for your 8mm, Super 8, 16mm and 35mm film. Damaged sprocket holes? Shrunk film? No problem. These professional film scanners are roller based so they don't use the sprocket holes and have laser frame alignment to get 100% of the frame no matter how shrunk it is. If you have 16mm or 35mm film click here.
Most of our customers are unaware that film was never intended to be copied or convert to video. Film was intended to be projected only. Because of this, converting film to video requires special scanning equipment. If you give it to a company using a projector and camcorder for your film to video conversion, you will be sorry. The video quality will be significantly less than what is on your film. In addition, a projector can many times damage your film. So, make sure your treasured memories are being handled with care will be scanned by a high quality machine intended to produce the best image quality possible.
