8mm Film To DVD Transfers

Sydney DVD Makers have transferred 1000’s of clients 8mm cine film onto DVD last 13 years, and in that time we have being upgrading our film scanning equipment to improve the quality of the transfer.

Our newest system in the Retro-8 film scanners from movie Stuff. The Retro scanners were designed specifically for the Academy of Motion picture film Archives in Hollywood. There frame by frame scanners employ no sprockets, no claws, no images area content and super cool bright LED capture lens which results in the highest quality capture with absolutely no effect on the film itself.

why do we choose to use these latest scanners, it’s simple because they are the number one scanning unit for highest quality reproduction of you film currently in the world

What our 8mm Film Transfer DO include tick

    and any sprocket damage with repairs undertaken were possible
  • hand cleaning and lubrication of your film in a anti-static solution
  • frame by frame scanned capture of either standard or super 8mm cine film
  • using frame-server software with complex scripts and algorithms we process your  film with filters including, de-noise, remove dirt, stabilization, sharpening,  degraining, colour adjust and lastly interpolation to create true 25 frames per second footage
  • flicker free playback of your film
  • heat-less LED light source eliminates hot spots and the chance of burning your film
  • solid state registration creating a rocky steady picture accurate to within a pixel
  • sprocket-less and claw-less film drives means no risk of damage to your precious
    film and much smoother scanning of the film in the capture process
  • RGB colour, brightness and contrast adjustment to enhance the quality are made
    were necessary
  • two pass variable bit encoding for the picture image and Dolbly Digital sound for
    the audio
  • we only use Taiyo Yuden DVD discs (masters, not OEM’s),the worlds best archival
    grade disc and the only disc still made in Japan

What our transfers DON’T include cross

  • Your film is not captured by projecting the image onto a wall and using a video
    camera to record it

    brittle so be careful trying to playback or letting anyone else playback your film
    through an old projector as the heat from the bulb could easier damage your film
