We will digitize (convert) your reels of 16mm film into a digital format. Each frame of film is captured at the highest resolution to preserve your family memories.
WHICH FORMAT TO CHOOSE?
When we digitize (convert) film, we can create two different types of final products – DVDs or MP4 video files. MP4 files are just digital video files (MP4 is the current standard for digital video files). They come back to you via a download link or on a USB flash drive. All of your films will fit onto one USB drive – each reel of film creates an individual video file. You can watch them on any computer, tablet or most TVs. To play back on a TV, you would plug the USB drive into the port on the back or side of the TV.
