As film degrades, the picture quality drops, and eventually becomes too late to restore it back to its original condition. We convert and transfer your film to DVD, where they will not degrade, the life expectancy of a DVD is 100+ years, with no decrease in quality no matter how many times it is played.

We capture the 16mm film, edit the material and transfer to DVD with suitable music. We also clean the film before transfer with a special lubricant which restores the film to its original condition.

We use high quality Taiyo Yuden DVD-R discs for our transfer service. Most modern DVD players will play DVD-R types of DVD. 

The majority of DVD discs are DVD-R. Some older DVD players may not be compatible with the DVD-R format.

(All current DVD players play both DVD-R and DVD+R discs)

We can also make duplicates of your new DVDs, so you can share them with family and friends. Duplicate copies, serve as a backup copy to protect you against the loss of your home movies should something happen to your original DVD's.

16mm frames can be transferred to Jpeg for printing from a CD.
