CUSTOM DVD MENUS
Transferring to DVD makes viewing your old films easier! With our basic menu structure included in your transfer, you have 2 ways to view your memories. Option 1 is a simple play option where you can watch your footage from beginning to end with no interruptions. Option 2 is our convenient scene selection. This includes automated chapter markers every 5 minutes that correspond to thumbnail pictures. Easily navigate and select scenes anywhere on the footage – no more frustrating rewinding and fast forwarding hoping to find the memory you want to view.
Digital Files are a great option for preserving memories and saving space! Whether you’re looking to archive your film footage for safe keeping or you want to further edit the footage a high quality MP4 digital file is the way to go. Once your memories are safely transferred to digital files, you can easily share them amongst friends and family or post them online for anyone to enjoy.

Our transfer system captures each and every frame of your film digitally. These frames are compiled digitally into your final video, ensuring a smooth playback
Our transfer system does not use your films sprockets during the scanning process. This eliminates the chance of your film being damaged in the process and it allows us to transfer films that have been damaged in the past by old projectors. The days of films skipping in the gate are a thing of the past.
Our transfer system uses cool running, pure white, Light-emitting diodes. This ensures your film will remain properly lit throughout the entire transfer process and there is no chance of damage due to heat.
Our transfer equipment is the same equipment used by the Motion Picture Academy in Hollywood. If it’s good enough for the likes of Spielberg, then we believe its good enough for our clients.
All film jobs are personally transferred, edited and reviewed by our highly trained staff at our studio in Hasbrouck Heights NJ. Our process is not automated. It’s a hands on process requiring no less than 2-3 of our technicians to work on each and every order. In the area?

ON THE TOPIC OF FILM…
What if I don’t know what is on my film reels?
Not to fear. Many of our clients bring us their films in shoeboxes with no idea what’s on them. If this is your case, we will take your films and digitize them. Then we will provide you with a time-coded DVD which will allow you to preview your films in the convenience of your own home. Using this preview DVD, you can take notes and provide us with the correct order for your films. Finally, we rearrange the files in our system and provide you with a final DVD in the correct order. We can also delete files at this point. This one time, per order review step is at no extra charge to you! For more information on this process, give us a call.
Why does my film smell so bad?
Film should be odorless. If your films have an odor, they may be suffering from Vinegar Syndrome. This is a very serious situation and it is imperative that the films be preserved as soon as possible as this is a sign of deterioration. We recommend that you contact our office for an appointment to have your films looked at. A member of our film transfer staff will be able to let your know if your films are in any danger. There is no charge for this service.
Which type of film are you able to transfer?
We can transfer the following film to DVD: 8mm, 16mm, Super-8, 9.5mm, 8mm Sound Film, Super 8mm Sound Film, 16mm Sound Film and more. If you have questions about a specific type of film, give us a call!
Can you process undeveloped film?
Yes. There are currently only a handful of labs that still process undeveloped films and we are happy to be partnered with one of the leading ones.
