Transferability

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.

16mm Sound

16mm film is silent if the sprocket holes are on both sides of the film.  For sound, one side of the film’s sprocket holes are replaced by the soundtrack.  The sound track could be magnetic or optical.  Magnetic (or Co-mag film) is generally found on film used in news gathering and this track was recorded as the film was being shot.  Optical sound track is created when the film is put together (sound is recorded separately from the film media) for creating a print and this is typically found on films that were sold or distributed.
