We offer two transfer methods - Frame Scanning and Realtime Capture

Frame scanning produces the highest quality transfer result however it does not capture sound. so film that contains a sound track will need to pass through a regular projector to record the audio. The sound track will then be added and synchronised to the scanned film. This cost a little extra due to double handling of the film

Our real-time capture process is much faster than Frame Scanning but does not have the same clarity and sharpness as film converted using the high end frame by frame method. Both systems produce excellent results however if budget is a major consideration then realtime capture is a great option .

Regular high quality 1980 x 1080p Frame by Frame Conversion - Full production - $0.48/ft

Our regular conversion service includes high quality frame scanning of your film at 1920 x 1080p resolution, basic editing to remove blank sections of film including any content that should obviously not be included, such as when the camera was left running by mistake. Some colour correction is applied where necessary then the final composition is saved in HD Format mp4 files, with accompanying background music. DVD is being phased out now as it is considered to be old technology providing only standard definition playback quality. Image stabilisation is not included in this service. Most home movies display far too much hand movement for this to work effectively. Please ask for a quotation if this is an important requirement and an anaylysis of the film will determine if your film is suitable for the stabilisation process.

Budget Realtime Capture at 1920 x 1080p transfer - $0.38/ft:

Our real-time capture process uses an aerial telecine workflow employing a modified projector that plays the film in real time through a lens system. Capture is performed using CCD camera equipment that produces excellent results. This system is much faster than Frame Scanning, requiring less post production work. Also it does not have quite the same sharpness and clarity as that achieved through frame scanning. If cost is a major consideration then the real-time capture will still achieve acceptable results.
