HD 2K 9.5mm, 16mm, 17.5mm, 22mm, 35mm to DVD (Film)



Why Convert your films to DVD and/or digital files?

Perhaps, you just found a long-lost 16mm wedding film of your grandparents, or a football game from high school. Maybe your company has 35mm feature films, news reels, promotional videos, or commercials that need to be converted into digital files. Perhaps, you just discovered a vintage 9.5mm, 17.5mm, 22mm, or 28mm film from the golden era of film making. Who has projectors to watch these films? Over time, these films deteriorate and sustain damage. That's why you need FamilyVideosOnDVD.com to transfer these films to DVD and/or digital files with our have State-of-the Art film technology equipment.


Many companies simply transfer your films using Out-of-Date technology without post-transfer enhancement, resulting in a low quality product. We are excited to be one of the first film transfer companies in the world to purchase, receive, and put into production the Moviestuff Retroscan Mark II CS (released in March 2020) movie scanner with a high definition 2K camera (up to 2048 X 1536 pixels). Unlike many of our competitors, our goal is to restore your films to their original quality by performing post-transfer enhancement using professional video editing software. Please see our Testimonials and Facebook Reviews to learn about the experiences of our customers who have utilized our services. Please see the Retroscan page for a more detailed description of our high definition 2K film scanning technology.

Sound Film Transfers

16mm Films: For best image quality, we transfer the video on a Retroscan Universal 2K Movies Scanner and the audio on a RetroSync Studio Sound Module that facilitates synchronizing the audio with the video. We then check for synchronization between audio and video at various points within the video.

 

Other Film Formats: For all other sound formats that we do not have a projector, we scan the optical sound track with the Retroscan Universal, and then use AEO Light Software to convert this sound track to a digital audio file, and then align the audio and video tracks.

 

Digital Transfers

We will transfer your films to an external hard drive or flash drive in the requested format. 2K Quicktime, HD Quicktime, SD Quicktime, AVI, and MP4 are the most common formats.
