Our exceptional film scanning services in Minneapolis are unparalleled, just like our video tape transfer services. Our cutting-edge full-frame scanning technology ensures the highest transfer quality. Our sprocket-less scanner design treats your film with the utmost care. We can scan a variety of formats, including silent 8mm, silent Super 8, Super 8 with magnetic sound, silent 16mm, and 16 mm with optical sound, and 35mm cine film with optical sound in 4k. You have the option of choosing between standard definition DVD or full HD Blu-Ray formats. Our meticulous scanning process involves scanning each frame individually, which is then compiled into a stunning movie. The result is truly remarkable!
Our approach to film transfers is far superior to the outdated methods of projector-to-box or camera-to-wall transfers. We understand that waiting 4 to 8 weeks for completion is simply unacceptable, which is why we pride ourselves on a turnaround time of just a few days, depending on the number of films. Our film transfer package includes the removal of blank footage, a fully mastered disc, a printed disc, and a full-sized case with cover. Additionally, we take extra care to provide fade-ins and fade-outs at the beginning and end of each video, color correction, grain reduction, and sharpening. We treat your precious memories with the utmost respect and care, as if they were our very own. This is our commitment to you.
There's no better time to transfer your film than now. You can not only enjoy it on your TV, but also share it with your loved ones online.
