8mm to 4K

So you have old film that needs to be restored and preserved for future generations. Our 8mm to digital conversion service can help. Maybe you inherited some film from a loved one, or perhaps you simply haven’t had a chance to have your material converted into a usable modern format. Whether you’re preserving film for a renowned archive or wanting to watch home movies on your television the process is similar.

8mm to Digital

The CinePost 4K film scanning machines convert each frame into individual digital frames. The output is very high resolution and when fed into a computer workstation can be output to a variety of formats for editing or creating watchable media on Hard Drive or DVD’s and Blu-Ray discs.

In addition to a high-resolution scan of the film, when converting 8mm to digital it’s important to pay attention to the exposure levels and color balance. The industry standard for color correction and level adjustment is a DaVinci system. CinePost uses a Cintel 4K Scanner in conjunction with a DaVinci color correction system and the WetGate dirt & Scratch Concealment system.
