As a customer (Dan C) states in her BBB review, “Really happy with the quality of 8mm transfer to digital, as are my parents! To sit with them and watch their wedding movie from 65 years ago was a precious experience, both in seeing the film and watching together. Ordered the Pro 2K processing with advanced grain elimination technology. I went high-end all the way and it was well worth it. I have used this service twice and will use it again”.
This customer feedback is the result of Innovation, technology, investment, and customer service over several decades. Our services took years to develop and to fine-tune. Video Conversion Experts is the premiere 8mm film to DVD company. There isn’t a single company that can challenge us from an innovation, technology, investment, and customer service standpoint.

The right technology: Restoration. Yes, we can restore your 8mm film to DVD. Most film transfer companies will tell you that they can’t correct for color shifting or dark footage, or that there is no way to remove grain, or that they can’t truly scan the film at 1080 or 1556 lines.. Well, they are wrong. They just don’t know any better. Video Conversion Experts use the highest quality and highest resolution scanners in the world. We can transfer 8mm film at 2K resolution, restore color, remove grain and stabilize the image.
We’ve been involved in developing and buying 8mm film to DVD restoration equipment for the past 30 years. The restoration equipment won’t make your film look like a major motion picture, but it can correct the film from the color-shifting and can correct/enhance dark footage, and it can remove grain on our Pro HD or Pro 2K process.
So, there are things that can be done to make your 8mm film to DVD transfer look better than the film does now. Both our Pro HD and Pro 2K transfer use the same 8mm film to DVD restoration equipment. So, if you are interested in restoring your 8mm film to DVD as good as it can be, choose the Pro HD or Pro 2K transfer.
