8mm, Super 8mm & 16mm Film Process:

Our system uses Emulsion Side Scanning to give you the highest quality picture.  This “Direct Imaging” process is fed directly into our computers.  Your transfer is flickerless with our special threading system even if you have some broken sprockets.  In the end you have a superior transfer that far exceeds most of our competition.
All transfers are done on premises (always ask where your transfer is done) for the best quality control.
Our system can also convert Super 8mm with sound & Bell & Howell FILMOSOUND.
