We have the ability to scan 9.5mm silent and optical audio film using our 5K Archival Film scanner.
Format: 9.5mm or Pathé Movie Film
Popular: Publicly available early 1922 and fade out by the early 1950s.
The 9.5mm format was more common in Europe. Optical sound tracks were introduce in 1938 by "squaring" the image a little. The 9.5mm image is almost as large as a 16mm image.
These films contain many precious home movies, but due to the chemical and physically frail nature of film, they can be damaged or degrade over time. The main concerns are physical damage to the film (usually caused by malfunctioning projectors), and full decomposition of the film (sometimes caused by improper storage).
We are well practiced at preserving your memories by transferring them to digital in resolutions up to 5K. We can also digitize any audio that may exist on the film. The precious digital files can be further enhanced with colour and contrast correction. Our specialized process will ensure that your valued home movies will last for many decades to come, preserved in digital.
Our Specialized Film Transfer Process
Our archival film scanning process is gentle on your film and scans the film to bring out the best possible image and audio that the latest technology can produce. The resulting digital video looks and sounds better than it did when it was projected on a screen.
