MOTION PICTURE FILM SCANNING

We convert 8mm, Super 8, 9.5mm and 16mm motion picture film,  as well as Polavision film cartridges on DVDs to enjoy for years to come.    We digitize all motion film using real-time, frame/shutter synchronized telecine scanners with cold light sources (no chance of film burn).   We direct-scan the film using a custom focal chain with absolutely no distorting optics.  We do not use consumer camcorders,  mirrors or clunky prism-like contraptions.  We use only professional custom engineered telecines and film surface"microscopeography".
