Transfer Old 8mm & 16mm Film to DVD

History is a part of our lives and so is the era of domestic film making. Cost and manufacturing of 8mm films has been superseded by the digital age. Even video videotape will become a recording media of the past. Film projectors and parts are no longer manufactured. This means it is becoming difficult to view these historical items. In years to come these films will become history. So to preserve and view your 8mm film history, we can transfer your films onto high quality DVD for viewing.


If you like we can even add music, voice-overs and/or titles. 

We transfer 8mm and 16mm Films sound or silent. 

To minimise losses to your film transfer process and reduce flicker we use film projectors, a high end telecine device - Yes we work with mirrors - and a sophisticated camera system. 

These films are then transferred to DVD for ease of viewing, and can be watched by all family members, anytime. Once on DVD you can even project it using LCD projectors and screens to keep the film effect. 

For a limited time we are offering at a reasonable cost - transfer of your old movies to DVD. Cost for a film transfer is $3.50 per minute of film. A 50 foot Super8 reel, usually comes in a yellow plastic spool pack and runs for approximately 3.5 minutes - about $15 each.

If you have any questions. I'd love to hear from you.

Transfer Video to DVD

Formats
VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, Betamax, SuperBeta, MiniDV, DVCAM, Hi8, Digital8, Standard8 video tape 

NTSC-PAL-NTSC (World Wide Conversion)

Repairs to Video tape - where possible.

Analogue video tapes go through Time Base Correction (TBC) before transfer to DVD. TBC equipment is used for stability, colour shift, and enhancement of the video signal. This process can also be used in the tape to tape transfer. This helps to get the best out of your old video tapes. Unfortunately , not everything can be perfect, as age and deteriation can only go so far. Best to get them done as soon as possible.

We can also convert other television system to the Australian PAL system and vice versa.

Tape repairs VHS and Beta

Damaged tapes due to use or machine malfunction, in some cases, can be repaired. The service is limited to repair for dubbing onto DVD only. WE DO NOT RECOMMEND USE OF THE TAPE AFTER THIS. Depending upon the damage most tapes can usually be saved. The recorded image where the damage occurs may not be saved, but is a small price to pay to save the rest. Some of the smaller size tapes can also be repaired. But please enquire about this.

A collage of images put together for loved ones - to a special presentation for a business conference or a corporate production, or short film clip. WE can do it!

Package Details
For best results, we colour correct all scanned images, (except 8mm film), to minimise the degradation that occurs in images over time. Once a few titles are added and music to uniquely tailor the program to your needs, we then sit you down and offer a free viewing to make sure you are completely happy with the results. It is at this stage that we can make any minor changes.

In addition to your package we also offer a specially designed personalised slick insert, of photographic quality, and printed DVD-R.
