We offer the best film transfer
available in NW Arkansas. All other local video shops and the "big
box" retailers use the lower quality methods described below. We
have re-transferred many films for their unhappy customers. The
prices are about the same but the difference in quality is stunning.

Movie Film Transfer to DVD.
transfer operations still use out-dated variable speed projectors and/or revolving
prism units (Elmo or Goko machines) to project the movie into the capture
camera. Or even worse, some just setup a video camera and film them off of
the wall. These methods result in transfers that have flicker,
bright spots, blurring or ghosting, distorted subject motion speed,
and poor resolution. Many are still
using old analog cameras and capture directly to VHS and thereby immediately
lose about half of the resolution and quality of the original film.
Digital Video (DV)
offers superior resolution and picture quality over VHS. Our
Digital Frame Capture process completely captures each and every
frame image on the film into a professional quality 3 CCD Digital Video camera.
These thousands of high quality images are digitally merged to create a
correctly timed, seamless, and flicker-free movie with stunning sharpness and
detail surpassed only by the most expensive studio transfers. We use the
same technology employed by the Academy of Motion Pictures Film
Archives in Hollywood. The quality
of the original cinematography and your films current condition are the
only limits in determining the quality of your transfer. You have
never seen your home movies look so good!
