Frame by Frame scanners.
We use only the latest professional TVT Cine Film real time frame by frame
Scanners built for us by Tobin Cinema Systems in the USA who have been
manufacturing these and others for over 40 years and now using the very
latest in technology to transfer your precious 8mm or 16mm Cine film to
a Hi resolution digital format with or without sound tracks.
* We have noticed one of our competitors rubbishing the transfer machinery and Telecine machines
of ours and and all other companies in this industry.
They are saying they have the best and only machine capable of transferring Film at better resolutions
than anyone else.
But they do not tell you what machines they are using and do not have a photo or image on their site
to show you what machine they have to prove their claims.
I would be very suspicious of their claims and ask them to show you what they are using and a photo
of the machine to prove all of this Blah Blah Blah.
We are happy for them to be proud of what they do but they should not rubbish all other operators.

( Only have 3" Reels ? )
If you have a number of 3" reels it would be a lot cheaper to
splice all of your small reels together onto larger reels.

produce better files if you want to edit your own film.
Yes we can splice the small reels onto the larger reels for you please ask).

not harm the film or reels they will all be returned to you in the same or better condition.
