Our Filmfabriek HDS+ Film Scanner

How we transfer – To get the best out of any movie film we hand clean to remove dust and dirt particles before capture, we then scan, frame by frame in up to 4K with high quality optics to uncompressed files to capture every detail, film restoration software can then be used to help remove any remaining dust, dirt and film anomalies, pictures are also de-grained and sharpened.

Output to a format of your choice including MP4, DVD, BluRay and digital edit files and image sequences.

You can have outputs in range of formats from raw scans or we can then pass the files through a video editor to make additional subtle colour corrections, trimming out any blank sections ready for export. For DVD and Blu-ray discs we add backing music for silent films adding any on screen titles as required. We also include an on screen navigation menu making it easy to play just the reel you want. We also keep a safety master for 1 month from dispatch.

HD or 4K digital files can be provided for archiving or home or professional editing or playback on smart TV’s or tablet devices.
