Digital Transfer of Cine Films

Cine films are digitally transferred and enhanced using the latest digital technology.

Unlike standard film transfers digital transfer allows us to produce the best possible play-back quality for our customers.

Unique colour correction and balance is part of the transfer process for all cine film that we process. Optional film cleaning is also available to ensure that your film will be in the best condition ready for transfer and long term storage.

We transfer cine films to either DVD, or digital files. There are three types of digital files which we convert cine film to: AVI files are available for PC based users and QuickTime files are created for Apple MAC users. 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.

Film and video tape transfer is overseen by Paul McGrath who has been involved with film since childhood and has a large personal collection of 8mm & 16mm cine films. We have transferred many large and small family collections, company archives and museum collections for viewing or long term storage.
