Please Note: A small portion of video tapes have more than 2 hours of capacity. Tapes over 2 hours in length will incur an extra charge and will be billed as an additional tape for each two hour block of time. Our system is setup as a one-to-one transfer, so each tape is transferred to its own DVD disc. If a tape is longer than 2 hours, the footage will be transferred to multiple discs.For more information - Click Here.

It's great to know your memories are recorded, but having access to enjoy them is important. Finding a VCR to play your old VHS tapes will become more and more difficult, leaving your bulky tapes unusable. The best solution is to transfer your video tapes to digital today. This way, you can enjoy your DVDs anytime you'd like on your computer, or DVD player. If you select the hard drive option, you will have the digital video files loaded to an external hard drive for use in your computer. You may use these video files to create additional copies, edit your footage or post to your favorite website.

ScanDigital can actually repair these imperfections by splicing the film back together to obtain a seamless transfer. You will never have to worry about your camcorder tapes being lost or damaged due to fire, flooding or any other unforeseen circumstances.

Part of your family's history is likely recorded on reel to reel film. However, chances are you don't even have a projector to play these 8mm memories anymore. Luckily, ScanDigital can save your home movie footage by converting your reels of 8mm film to digital DVD. Our film to digital transfer service handles 8mm, Super8 and 16mm film. Transfer your memories to DVD in just a few weeks!
Note: Some 3 inch reels are housed in boxes that list the footage at 25 feet. These are double 8mm reels of film, and in fact have 50 feet of film to be transferred, not the listed 25 feet. Prior to recording, the reel consisted of 25 feet of film. After the film was developed, it was split down the middle and converted to 50 feet of 8mm film, doubling the footage on the reel.
Old home movie film dates back to the 1930s. It was a fantastic innovation, allowing families to record motion pictures of everyday life - just like Hollywood. While 8mm and 16mm film is more durable than videotape, it's decades old and currently at the end of its lifespan. It's also highly inconvenient or completely impossible to watch - as home movie projectors are obsolete. Even if you have one, you have likely forgotten how to use it, it's broken, or you don't want to go through the hassle of taking it out of storage. More importantly - running old brittle 8mm film through your projector will possibly break it or burn it, thus ruining the treasured memories forever.
The natural aging process has likely already caused your memories to deteriorate, which includes fading, scratches and other damaging effects of time. Ultimately, damage and decay causes old 8mm film to crack and even break. Fortunately, ScanDigital will repair these imperfections by splicing the film back together to obtain a seamless transfer. You will also never have to worry about your reels of film being lost or damaged due to fire, flooding or any other unforeseen circumstances.
For our film to digital process, we delicately unwind your reels to inspect, repair and clean the film before processing begins. Our highly trained technicians first inspect your 8mm or 16mm film for bad splices and broken sprockets and repair where necessary. Then, we clean your film with an oil based cleaning solution to lubricate it before processing. Our intensive preparation allows for a more flawless film to digital transfer process.
