We scan all cine films on our Filmfabriek HDS+ flash scan machine to provide stable, flicker free high resolution output of even the oldest vintage films.
We scan 8mm, Super 8, 9.5mm Pathé, 16mm & Super 16 cine gauges. All films are digitally restored in our HDS+ Film restoration software for improved clarity at very affordable prices too.
Clean + Scan + Restore
How we transfer – All films are hand cleaned to remove dust and dirt particles before capture, we then flash scan, frame by frame in up to 4K with high quality optics to uncompressed files to capture every detail, film restoration software is then be employed to help remove any remaining dust, dirt and film anoamolies, pictures are also de-grained, stabilised and sharpened.
We then pass the files through a video editor to make additional subtle colour corrections, trimming out any blank sections, adding backing music for silent films and adding any titles and captions required. DVD, BluRay or HD digital files are made and we keep a digital safety master for 1 month from dispatch.
Output to a format of your choice including MP4, DVD, BluRay and digital edit files.
