Film digitisation
Full HD from 16 and 35mm film

Much of your most valuable footage is probably on film. Unfortunately, when film isn't managed properly, it can start to deteriorate in as little as 15 years. And regardless of its age, film is becoming harder and harder to access.

But there is a way you can preserve that footage - and its financial or cultural value - indefinitely. By converting it to a compressed or uncompressed digital format that will never deteriorate, you immediately turn your depreciating footage into a valuable digital asset.

Even if you think your film is too far gone - too old or damaged - we can probably still digitise it. And the results will be much better than you'd hoped.

  • Film formats - We can convert large gauge film formats, including 16 and 35mm sound and vision.
  • Film preservation professionals - We have film preservation professionals in-house. They have years of experience cleaning, preparing and salvaging deteriorated film, including 'vinegar syndrome', film shrunken by up to 4%, damaged splicing and damaged reels.
  • Optimised laser digitisation process - We employ a state-of-the-art optimised laser digitisation process, which ensures excellent picture stability.
  • Continuous capstan film transport - We use continuous capstan film transport, so we can manage large reels (up to 4000ft), dramatically reducing the risk of damage to delicate film material during the transfer process.
  • High Definition output for 16 and 35mm - We create High Definition digital video output for 16 and 35mm film, with a resolution of up to 1080p (Full HD). We can also do Standard Definition if that's all you need.
  • Optional Digital Asset Management (DAM) systems - We can design and commission a DAM system so that you can easily store, find & share your content. From a small single workstation system to an enterprise-grade solution, we can provide you with the tools to maximise the value of your new digital collection. Learn more…

Why digitise?

Film, video & audio collections are under threat from degradation and technology obsolescence. The National Film and Sound Archive recently pointed to a 10 year window to digitise their collection due to obsolescence. The only way to preserve our media - to monetise it, to share its cultural significance - is to digitise.

What are we working on now?

We're digitising and preserving a collection from the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
