Transfer 8mm to DVD


If you want the best quality 8mm transfer to DVD, you came to the right place. We have the highest resolution 8mm film scanners in the world. We can scan your 8mm film at 2K (1.5 times HD video) resolution. There is only a very, very small handful of companies in the world that can do that. In addition, we can do it at a price that is much cheaper than any professional lab in NY or LA that is able to scan film at 2K or above. We fit a very specific niche. We only offer high-quality scanning but do it at a price point that is far cheaper than your professional lab that can transfer your 8mm film to DVD.

Companies can transfer 8mm film to DVD in a variety of ways. Converting 8mm film to DVD has been performed since DVD came out in the 1990s. Unfortunately, most companies still use machines from the 1980s to produce VHS-level quality from your 8mm film onto DVD. Any process under 15 cents/ft is producing VHS-level quality.

If you are looking for a good or the best quality transfer of 8mm film to DVD, look no further. We offer a wide variety of options and we can not only transfer 8mm film to DVD or BluRay but can transfer it to many different formats including digital files like ProRes and HD-AVI.

Up until 1930, only Hollywood could record movies on film. It was unimaginable that any average person could make their own movies of their family. But in 1930 a new revolution was upon us. Kodak not only pioneered the professional Hollywood market, but now any family could shoot their own home movies and could play them back again and again. The film was where it all started. We all take it for granted. If the film was never invented, we wouldn’t have Hollywood, TVs, Camcorders, Cameras, and all the supporting industries like Facebook, Google+, Instagram, etc. Imagine what your life would be like without these things. It is impossible to imagine that.

But film doesn’t last forever. In fact, 8mm film only lasts about 50-60 years. Having your 8mm film transferred to DVD, BluRay, or a digital file will be one of the most important things you can do for your family and kids. We run into 8mm film from the 1930s or 1940s that cannot be scanned. It has become too fragile and warped. We only charge for the 8mm film we can transfer to DVD, so send it all and we will do whatever we can. Our scanners are roller-based and do not use sprocket holes. These film transfer machines are the most gentle film scanners in the world in addition to being the highest resolution scanners in the world.

As the table above indicates, there are different 8mm film transfer types. It is important to understand the quality and limitations you get from the different types of 8mm film transfer equipment. Once the customers study the different 8mm film to DVD machines, they typically want the 8mm film scanned on a motion picture film scanner or Datacine machine. If you want to archive your film then I would suggest having the film transferred to DVD using a Datacine machine.

The most important aspect to consider when you transfer 8mm film to DVD is the scanning resolution. Most companies are offering 480 or 720p (HD) scans. There are also 1080p and 1556p scans available. We offer all the 8mm film transfer resolutions up to 1556 lines. So, regardless if you are looking for the cheapest 8mm film to DVD transfer or the best, Video Conversion Experts help you out.
