8mm, 16mm & 35mm Film Transfer to DVD & Hard Drive
Film Transfer

With the advent of the Vhs Format, consumers now had the ability to do away with troublesome 8mm Film Projectors and cumbersome screen setups to view their 8mm Film Home Movies. However film transfers directly to VHS Tapes could not have been done in the best of quality and resolution was poor, due to the lack of professional equipment and technology, at that time.

Today, such transfer setups are still in existence, only difference is 8mm film is directly recorded to DVD, ie "straight transfers". Quality of transfers of 8mm Films in this fashion is still poor as DVD recorders do not have the ability to adjust important settings that would create excellent resolution and results. Here is where we at Digital Video & Film Lab we excel in our quality transfers.

Key Benefits of Transfering Your 8mm film with Digital Video & Film Lab
  • Our process is extremely unique and with over 25 years of experience in the business, we developed a full resolution scan of 8mm film that encodes film DIRECTLY to a DIGITAL FILE.
  • We have the ability to set over 45 different settings within our HardWare Encoders to create and enhance excellent file quality, before being authored to DVD.
  • Color is Enhanced, Exposure Corrected, Backlighting adjusted, SCENE BY SCENE.
  • Upon Creating Digital file, all DVDs created are fully Authored.
  • Digital Files are provided with each DVD at no extra cost, a testament to our process knowing that your films originated from Digital Files.
Here is our process once we receive your films
  • All Films are inspected visually for any damage.
  • Films are measured to determine accurate footage count.
  • Final Estimates are written up and we will consult with clients on estimate and film quality report.
  • Upon approval, we will begin the process of Cleaning and Lubricating. Dust and Dirt is removed from film to expose clarity, saturation and proper exposure as intended in the original film.
  • State of the art Equipment, where Film is scanned at a high resolution while color timed etc. Digital file is Created.
  • Digital File is edited for color balance and faded or back film is edited out to final output file.
  • DVD is fully authored from Digital File with customized Design, titles and scene selection.

LET’S TALK ABOUT WHAT WE DON’T DO....
  • WE DON’T STRAIGHT TRANSFER YOUR VIDEOS TO DVD, THEN USE SOFTWARE TO “RIP” OUT THE VIDEO FILES FROM THE DVD. THIS IS A CHEAPER PROCESS THAT CREATES POOR VIDEO AND SOUND QUALITY WHEN FINAL FILE IS “RIPPED”.
  • WE DON’T USE “OVER THE COUNTER” CONSUMER CONVERTERS.
  • WE DON’T TRANSFER CONTENT YOU DON’T NEED. IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF WHAT YOU HAVE, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CALL US TO SCHEDULE TIME TO VIEW YOUR MEDIA.
  • WE DON’T CHARGE HARD DRIVE SETUP FEES. WE BELIEVE THIS IS PART OF THE PROCESS AND YOU SHOULD NOT BE PAYING EXTRA.
  • WE DON'T COMPRESS YOUR VIDEOS TO FIT ON DVDS. THIS PROCESS REDUCES QUALITY. WE DIGITIZE AT HIGHEST QUALITY WITHOUT COMPRESSION. EXTERNAL HARD DRIVES ARE NEEDED FOR ALL TRANSFERS.
OUR PRICE STRUCTURE IS SIMPLE

Customer Testimonials
Dear Ray, I am so pleased with the DVDs you made for me from my family videos. Some of the tapes were 34 years old, and it brought back such nice memories to see my children as babies. The DVDs are excellent quality and the menus you designed on each DVD make it very easy to find exactly the scene I want to view. I will happily and confidently recommend you to any friends who need to have their tapes converted.
Thanks again,

Bobbie.
