8mm Film to DVD — 2K HD Digital Conversions

Why Convert 8mm to DVD and/or Digital?

Broken or no projector? Blown bulb? Film Jams? Just don't want the hassle of setting up your projector? Maybe you just want to preserve your valuable 8mm films so that they can be passed to the next generation. Over time, your films become brittle and deteriorate. Every moment you hesitate risks that much more damage.

HD 2K Transfer Technology

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). The results are amazing with a clearer, higher resolution, and a more natural video image with greatly reduced background noise and grain compared to our previous Retroscan units. With this unit, we can also scan many more film formats, including 8mm, Super 8mm, 9.5mm, 16mm, 17.5mm, 22mm, 28mm, and 35mm.
