How to get Super 8 Converted to a format that will last
If you are looking for the best quality Super 8 Conversion, look no further. We are the premiere Super 8 film transfer lab in the United States. We can scan your Super 8 film up to 1556 lines of resolution, higher than any other lab. In addition, our 2K (1556) line scanner is also a Datacine machine which has only been used for Hollywood films in the past.
Of course we know that families and producers have different budgets they are working with. This is why we offer a variety of scanning options below to meet everyone's needs. In addition to the different Super 8 conversion resolutions, we also offer a wide variety of formats from DVD, BluRay, Editing files and the ultimate master format, DPX. If you need a different format let us know, we can produce anything you need. DVD and BluRay are great for viewing but will not last as long as you need them to in order to preserve your family history. The best option is an editing format like HD-AVI or ProRes. These are near master quality and will not lock you into DVD or BluRay. In fact, you can create anything from these files including DVD, BluRay, videos. In the near future you will be able to stream the video from your computer directly to your TV as well.

Finding a company you can trust is not easy today. Do your homework and look for company reviews to help guide you. As Terri commented in our BBB review, "I am incredibly happy with Video Conversion Experts. I sent over 7000 feet of very old Super 8 film with weak splices to Arizona from California. I can't tell you how thrilled I am to see all these family memories preserved from the 1950's and 1960's and it was so painless. I couldn't give high enough marks for this company!"
