Send us your silent reel-to-reel home movie films and we will transfer them to YOUR choice of 4K UHD (3840x2160), 1080p HD (1920x1080p), Blu-ray and/or DVD. We use the LATEST 2020 film transfer technology and software to produce higher quality transfers than other services in our price range. We routinely transfer films to 4K UHD digital files for historical documentaries, university football teams, professional athletes, famous families, and film archive libraries.
Why Scan Films at 2048x1536 resolution and not just 480i DVD, 720p or 1080p?
95% of 50+ year-old personal family films retain their amazing photo quality! Unlike very low quality VHS & analog camcorder videos, films are a series of photo-quality images originally projected onto large movie screens - as large as modern 4K UHD & HDTVs. Our NEW 2048x1536 Sony IMX camera & software technology makes your films look their best on large 40"+ UHD & HDTVs, etc. 2048x1536 just exceeds the grain quality of the film, so future generations will not have to pay-again to preserve the best quality your films support. We now provide 4K 3840x2160 UHD files for convenient 4K editing but you may also choose the 1920x1080p files or playable 1920x1080 Blu-ray/DVD combo.
Why Choose CVS Professionals?
Comparing Us to Other Commercial HD Services:
Our professional clients prefer our results because we take time to stop, rewind & re-scan scenes that benefit from improved color & exposure settings. In comparison, many other "commercial" services run the film "once and done"... Most commercial services using our exact technology & workflow charge $25 - $30 per 50' of film... We are able to offer high quality at affordable prices because we work-in your personal film order while while we are waiting for large commercial orders to S-L-O-W-L-Y render-out uncompressed HD to meet professional and broadcast standards... Therefore our business model is win/win for you & us!
Comparing Us to Cheaper Media Transfer Services:
Most local stores ship-out old movie films to a central store or 3rd party where hourly employees manage rows of automated machines. They transfer everything from low-quality VHS tapes to high quality reel-to-reel films. Customers with low expectations for 50 year-old films are typically happy because the 8 Mb/s DVDs from their photo-quality films look about the same as the 8 Mb/s DVDs made from their low-quality VHS tapes. They do not realize that films are photo-quality media supporting 6X the resolution & 12X the data rate of DVD!
Our service is for transferring silent reel-to-reel movie film. Please note that some low-quality Super-8 films from the 1970's may have color loss whereas most films from the 1940's-1960's typically look pristine (like our examples). Our discounted online service/pricing is for family films only. Do NOT send us new undeveloped film, commercial films, copyrighted material, cartoons, burlesque, or XXX adult films. We keep your master capture files for 60 days to honor our 60 Day Warranty. Please make your own backup copies during this time. After 60 days we cannot provide replacement files. However, our playable Blu-ray & DVD discs come with a 1 year warranty. If you send us back the original non-functioning Blu-ray or DVD within one year, we will send out a replacement disc.
Payment, Shipping & Turn-Around Details:
You are responsible for shipping your film reels to us in a sturdy BOX using a reliable shipping method with Signature Confirmation for the security of your pre-transferred films. We keep a backup copy of your entire project for 60 days... Turn-around depends on the condition of your film reels and season. Please arrange for expedited processing and shipping if you need your project for an important family event or holiday. Our professional quality & attention to detail take longer than automated consumer-grade services...
