film scanning serviceWe provide you with the best 8mm and 16mm film scanning service and help to preserve your memories forever.

We provide special facility to the customers who live in Coventry and surrounding areas by collecting their 8mm film and 16mm film from their doorstep.

So you have old film that needs to be restored and preserved for future generations. Our 8mm to digital conversion service can help. Maybe you inherited some film from a loved one, or perhaps you simply haven’t had a chance to have your material converted into a usable modern format. Whether you’re preserving film for a renowned archive or wanting to watch home movies on your television the process is similar.

We use more advanced telecine machines that use a flying spot scanner to convert each frame into individual lines which make up a digital frame. The output is very high resolution and when fed into a computer workstation can be captured to a variety of formats for editing or creating watchable media like DVD’s and Blu-Rays.

Video formats explained

MOV A MOV file is a common multimedia container file format developed by Apple and compatible with both Macintosh and Windows platforms. It may contain multiple tracks that store different types of media data and is often used for saving movies and other video files. MOV files commonly use the MPEG-4 codec for compression.

AVI file is a file saved in a multimedia container format created by Microsoft. It stores video and audio data that may be encoded in a variety of codecs such as DivX and XviD. AVI files typically use less compression than similar formats such as .MPEG and .MOV.

MP4 MP4 is a digital multimedia container format most commonly used to store video and audio, but it can also be used to store other data such as subtitles and still images. Like most modern container formats, it allows streaming over the Internet.

SD Standard Definition video specifies the audio and video codecs and file format that allows users to view video on a multitude of consumer electronics built to SD standards

HD video is, in general, video of higher resolution than standard video (SD), usually with display resolutions of 1,920 × 1,080 pixels (1080i/1080p) or 1,280 × 720 pixels (720p). Those numbers refer to the number of lines (pixels) in the vertical display resolution, which is to say that a 720p video would have 720 vertical pixels/lines.

4K video refers to one of two high definition resolutions: 3840 x 2160 pixels or 4096 x 2160 pixels. 4K is four times the pixel resolution, or twice the line resolution (2160p), of 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels). 4K is a new resolution standard designed for digital cinema and computer graphics.
