CONVERSION FROM 16 MM FILM TO DVD, BLU-RAY DISC or DIGITAL VIDEO FILES

This service package, as priced, is for conversion from 16 mm film to standard definition DVD, high definition Blu-Ray Disc and digital video files on an external hard drive / flash drive (provided by customer).

Our unmatched, comprehensive film conversion package is offered at a convenient price, without sacrificing the quality. Your motion film will be scanned frame by frame using the best telecine equipment in the industry and stored on commercial grade durable media. We take pride in our product and we make sure no job leaves our studio without a comprehensive quality check.

After selecting the output format desired, input in the Qty window the number of reels. Then add it to your shopping cart. You may purchase duplicates of the DVD by adding the item "additional copies" to your shopping cart. After purchasing the service package online, you must send the film in for processing along with a copy of the receipt.

If you don't know the length of your film or if your film needs extensive restoration, you may send it in for evaluation. Once we receive and evaluate your originals, we will contact you with a report and a price quote. Click here to print the verification order form. 

Film Length: Please go to the following link to see a chart and learn how to measure the film reels.

Technology: We use commercially made telecine equipment used for motion pictures and TV production. Such equipment uses a high resolution camera / scanner that looks directly at the film, unlike home made transfer units that record the projection of the image using a consumer camcorder. Such home made units are common in small video shops.
