The process of digitising your films generates many thousands of still images which are compiled by our software to produce a high quality jitter free movie. This file is quite large, typically 1 GB per minute. A standard DVD will only store 4.8 GB of data so you can see that companies who offer to transfer your cine films to DVD will have to capture at much lower resolution or compress the files down to fit on a DVD. We feel its best to offer you the best of both worlds, If requested we can supply a DVD for standard viewing together with HD files for editing or viewing on large screen TVs.


We scan your films in High Definition, and can transfer your cine or video to DVD , Blu Ray or supply files which you can edit, share, copy and distribute Its a digital service which ever you choose but we feel the most versatility comes in the form of files. The delivery method is your choice, If you choose Blu ray or DVD they will be sent to you together with your films, If you choose files we can supply a suitable storage device such as a memory stick or hard drive. All items will be sent by tracked courier so you can monitor the parcels journey to your home.
