8mm and Super 8 Film

 

  • Our Retro-8 cine film transfer system produces a high quality frame by frame scan of your Super 8 or Standard 8mm film.

 

  • To fully understand the process, have a look at your film, you ll  notice it is made up of a series of images, usually about 18 images for every second of film.  So a 4 minute (50 foot) reel will have around 4,300 images, and by using the Retro-8 Frame Scanner, we ensure each and every cell is captured, recreating the perfect film without flickering.

 

  • A SafeScan feature means there is no contact with your film at the gate and rubber guide rollers handle the film by the edges for maximum safety.  Most films with broken sprocket holes, bad splices or shrinkage will be scanned with ease.
  • The Retro-82 s  Solid State Registration ensures a steady picture, usually accurate to within a single pixel.  The output is in full 24-bit color, capable of HD 1080p, 16:9.
