Before selecting and trusting any company with your beloved films, you must ensure that the company's scanning equipment is of the highest calibre. It's essential to understand what equipment is used for the film scanning. All of our film scanning is performed at our Cheshire facility using the latest "digital data scanner" technology, which replaces the older and now outdated Telecine or Flashscan systems. Our film scanners do NOT contain sprockets or pull-down claws that can damage the film; instead, our technology uses high-precision lasers to track and measure the film in real-time. The film tension is continuously monitored by a computer system and will stop in a "heartbeat" if any problems are detected; this avoids any damage to your precious film. Our high-quality commercial scanners provide highly stable and colour-corrected images that are impossible on cheaper systems. Your films and memories deserve the best treatment; don't settle for second best.
Prices start from just £6 per spool.
All film is cleaned before scanning using industry-standard techniques. Our scanner also incorporates PTRs (Particle Transfer Rollers ) to clean the film during the scanning process.
All film is checked before scanning, and if required, any poor splicing is repaired using our high-precision film splicers. This is a standard service for 8mm, 9.5mm and 16mm film.
We offer a scanning service for both positive and negative films. We apply a standard orange mask during scanning for the negative film to produce the best results.
The following calculator will give you an estimated project cost for the film scanning based on the size and quantity of reels, plus the output format.
The estimated cost assumes all the film reels are completely full, otherwise the final cost may come down. If you wish to receive multiple outputs such as USB and DVD then please contact us for some special pricing.
The return shipment is not included in this estimated price.
