We use ELMO digital projectors (the world leader in presentation
equipment) to provide you with a superior film-to-video transfer job. The digital projectors are
equipped with a 410,000 pixel color CCD video camera, producing over 450
horizontal TV lines of high-resolution video images.
Your film goes directly from the projector to our recording equipment enhancing
the quality of the transfer.
We correct up to two stops over- and/or under-exposure of
your film for better quality of transfer and viewing.
We transfer your film directly from your reels. This minimizes the chance of
damage to your film as most likely they have become very fragile over time or if they were not stored properly.
We clean our projector's lense after every reel to ensure that no
dust from your old movies is in the way.
We only charge you for what is transferred. Black film strips and areas that are too dark
or too bright will not be transferred and will not be charged.
We will leave 8 - 10 seconds blank at the beginning of the VHS tape to allow for
tracking on your VCR to pick up.
recording of copyright material
and adult content will not be transfered.
