Video Conversion Experts offers various levels of movie film to DVD services to meet everyone's need. Our SD process is similar to what other film transfer companies are using today. The first process to offer better quality is our Pro SD process. It scans each frame in one by one. The Pro HD process builds on this by adding film restoration. The restoration is done by a machine that was used for restoring Pro Hollywood films. The Pro 2K is the ultimate process because it scans each frame in at 2K resolution (1556 lines, 50% higher than the Pro HD process) and includes restoration as well.

Transferring your movie film to DVD is one of the most important things you can do to archive your family history for generations to come. Our DVDs are professional archival quality that are 100 times less likely to scratch and will last a minimum of 50 years. We not only transfer movie film to DVD, but can transfer your film to master formats like AVI, HD-AVI, ProRes and the ultimate format DPX so you can edit the footage and put your own personal touch on the DVD.
