I’m a paragraph. Double click here or click Edit Text to add some text of your own or to change the font. This is the place for you to tell your site visitors a little bit about you and your services.

Your films are very important and in many cases irreplaceable, therefore it may no longer be to your advantage to use them on domestic equipment.


We use professional film scanners often referred to as telecine machines to convert the films you now see on television. These will scan the images without the intermittent or claw movements as found on projectors or cheap film scanning machines.  


Special rollers will clean and smooth the film prior to transfer and each machine is fitted with custom-built optics to produce high-resolution images. In most cases, the images will look far superior to the original material. A professional machine will also be able to re-produce stereo audio and help restore the damaged film.

Our machines are the FilmFabriek (shown in the video in the panel. This is a YouTube video from FilmFabriek and the Flashscan as shown below.


We use two machines and can convert any format of film sound or silent, the diagrams below are to help you identify the formats of film you have.


Part of our service can include a Free sample of your film so you to see the quality for yourself, simply contact us to find out more about this service.

If you have trays of old slides or negatives sitting in the cupboard, consider having them transferred to a digital format. It is much easier to store and play them from a USB stick than getting out the old projector and setting up the screen. The results are quite stunning since professional conversions make the slides come alive, We can convert and format of slides, photos or negative.
