Cine Film Transfer Service

As all our film transfers are done in house the average turn around is 5 to 8 working days. We also offer a Same Day service too.

We can transfer your old films 16mm, Super 8 or Standard 8 on to DVD, or to computer video files in high definition or standard definition for you to edit at home. We digitally enhance your films to make them more vibrant, clearer and brighter.

How Cine Transfer is Done

Look at the example below to see the output of our unique cine film transfer service. This example shows 16mm film scanning samples

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 digital file or DVD.

Our cine transfer 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.

Being able to bring and collect them was helpful and you completed them so quickly! Once again thank you. ...”

Their service and communication were excellent but I wasn't prepared for the impact of the finished films. The quality is simply amazing. Thank you Excelsior, a fully professional and affordable service. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to revisit films that remain forgotten in the attic...... ...”
