High Definition files of your cine film are also possible, please ask for full details.

Cine Transfer - How it's done

Each film is transferred by a triple CCD high definition (HD), recording 1080 picture lines. This is then transferred to a computer as a digital file where it is reviewed and enhanced. The high definition film capture enables us to capture each film at its optimum quality.

We remove any blank sections from your home movies, add music and titles if desired and output to DVD. Our cine to DVD service produces excellent results and there is no flicker or centre hotspot with our cine processing method even on very old 16mm 16 frames per second film.

If necessary, speed adjustment, colour correction and film grading is undertaken during the enhancement stage. This is free of charge and ensures a quality restoration of colour balance for your films.

We are so confident that you'll be impressed by the quality of our film conversion service that we offer a Free Demo DVD. This DVD shows a sample selection of the film transfers that we can do and the quality obtained. Please contact us for your free copy. No follow up sales calls are made.
