There are many different ways to convert 8mm to DVD. To do it right, with the highest quality, requires the best film scanners in the world. If you are looking for the best quality conversion of 8mm film to dvd, you've found it. We use the world's best and most expensive professional motion picture film scanners and Datacine machines for your 8mm and Super 8 film. In addition, our scanners are the most gentle on your old film. They don't use the sprocket holes to move the film through the machine, they use rollers under tension. So, it's no problem if the sprocket holes are damaged or the film is shrunk.
Most people are unaware that positive film was never intended by Kodak to be converted to another format. At the time Kodak thought that film would last a very, very long time. And it has. But, we are now at that time where the film is warping and breaking and in some cases can no longer be converted to DVD or other digital formats. In order to get the same quality as the 8mm film, you must scan the film above it's resolution. This holds true for anything you are trying to copy at the same quality level. As you know, when you try to copy a document on a photo copier it rarely turns out as good as the original. We've been on a quest with film scanning equipment manufacturers to create a machine that can get 100% of the quality from the film. However, to do it right requires a high quality precision machine that can convert 8mm to DVD.
Video Conversion Experts is one of the leading 8mm film to DVD companies in the United States. When you work with Video Conversion Experts, you're getting the best in the business. You'd have to turn to a Hollywood post-production specialist to get the same restoration and transfer services you get from Video Conversion Experts. The difference is that Video Conversion Experts will cost about 1/3 of what a Hollywood post-production specialist would charge. Of course we can convert Super 8, 16mm and 35mm film to DVD as well. You wont find very many companies that can scan all the film types like Video Conversion Experts. Many of our customers convert their 8mm film to DVD for easy viewing, and also transfer their footage to another format for editing.
