Cine Film Archiving is now more important than ever before. Although Cine Film has a much longer life span than Video, it will still decay eventually. 

Here at CineFilm2DVD we also offer a Cine Film Archiving service and can tailor this to suit any need.

Whether you are a Museum, Council, School, University or indeed any establishment that requires older formats in a more user friendly form, give us a call for a no obligation quote. Please take a look at samples of our transfers on our YouTube Channel. Alternatively you can click here to view our samples page.

Cine Film Archiving by CineFilm2DVD is done with the utmost care. We will check films for damage before Cine Film Archiving and Will repair splices if needed. Film cleaner is applied to all films where no emulsion breakdown is present. This also lubricates the film help keep it from becoming brittle. The scanning process is done one frame at a time. The scanners do not have sprockets and the lamp source is a cold LED. Because of this, there is no risk to the film, e.g. Burnt frames.

After capture, we can supply the films in a variety of formats. We can supply on a standard DVD, for Standard Definition, or Blu-Ray for High Definition. We will supply digital files in any format you require. Some of these include Mpeg2, Mpeg4, MOV, H.264, AVI and DivX. 

An image sequence file can also be supplied when films are scanned in High Definition. This means that there will be one JPEG or Bitmap image created for each frame of film. The definition for these would be 1920×1080. You can edit or enhance by loading the Image Sequence file into video editing software.

Formats Suitable for Cine Film Archiving to Digital Format

We capture all formats of 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm cine film. New digital formats are created from the captures, making it easier for these items to be viewed with ease once more.
