Our Process

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 lens after every reel to ensure that no dust from your old movies is in the way.

"I just wanted to drop you a note of praise. I picked up my converted Super 8mm movies and am completely impressed. The conversion quality is amazing, easily better than anything I could have done. But more importantly, it's the little things done that makes it even better. I love the way the film reels are numbered so it's obvious the order on the tapes. Awesome job! Well worth the investment."
