Film Transfers

Do you have reels of old home movies gathering dust on a forgotten shelf or does your old projector no longer work? These memories captured on film will deteriorate over time if you do not update the technology. Thanks to Qantem, you can now convert your standard and super 8mm, 16mm and 9.5mm film to DVD, USB or External HD.

What type of film do I have?

So you have found a reel of film and are not sure what to do from here. Below is a guide to different film types and sizes. Standard 8mm film first came out in the 1950's with Super 8mm following in the late 1960's. 16mm film was introduced in the 1930's with sound following soon after. 

What format should I transfer my film to?

It all depends on how you want to watch your films. We supply a DVD with all conversions, but if you have a new Smart TV we can supply your film as a video file eg: MP4, MP2 or AVI on a USB or Hard Drive. A video file is also good for archival purposes.

How long does it take?

All film is transferred onsite and it usually it takes 3-4 working days depending on the size of your job.

How do we do it?

Our Licensed Theatre projectionist has been working with film and projectors for over 40 years,  Our film conversions are scanned frame by frame at real time directly to an uncompressed video file. Old broken edits are repaired at no extra cost.

 

How much does it cost?

There is an initial $20 set up fee and we charge per reel with prices starting at $25 per 50ft reel.
