This film scanner was designed at the request of the Academy of Motion Picture Film Archives in Hollywood and boasts a unique system that uses a two-motor design with direct drive take up and rewind, combined with no sprockets, no advance claw, co capstan, no pinch roller, no belts, and no gears!

This system uses a long life super bright LED light source without a hot spot and with no heat on the equipment or your film and therefore it will never blister your film! If your films has experienced shrinkage, broken sprocket holes or bad splices it will navigate the film path with ease.

The Retro units have a built-in high resolution, machine-vision pick up that scans in full 24 bit (8:8:8) using industry standard square pixel orientation.  What this means for you is a much cleaner transfer of your priceless family films. Keeping up with the times we now not only offer film transfer to DVD or Blu-ray but also offer many different types of files that we can export your film to.

An Array of Output options:

  1. DVD or Blu-ray   Typically we pull all of your films (up to about 1800 feet) into a single project and clean up the ends of the films, add in titles, add in music or narration, scene selection and more. You are encouraged to view their project online and dictate any edits or enhancements that you would like. Once finalized we export it to a playable DVD or Blu-ray.  This is an easy to view option where you just put the disk into a DVD or Blue-ray player connected to your TV or play it on your computer.
  2. Finished Video File  How about exporting that final project with all the bells and whistles to a video file instead of a DVD? Then you can put it up on the “cloud” to share, save it on your external and play it on your computer. You would typically receive an  avi (for pc) or mov (for mac).  You can also get a compressed file of all or a portion of your footage to share via email, facebook, youtube or other social media (typically as mpg2, wmv or flv).
  3. Raw unedited film footage  With this option you get the unedited film footage from each reel (combined into 400 foot reels) as  avi (for pc) or mov (for mac).  This if for those of you who want to do the editing of your footage with the comfort of your home computer.
  4. Every frame file  How about a huge file of every frame of your film saved as a jpg? Yep, that is now a reality as well.  Figure that it will be .5GB/100 feet of film.  With this file you can print out a still photo of every frame of your original film.
