Super 8/8mm/16mm Cine to DVD, QuickTime, AVI or MiniDV Service

How it's done:- Each film is transferred by a triple CCD high definition (HD), recording 1080 picture lines. This is then transferred to a computer as a digital file where it is reviewed and enhanced. The high definition film capture enables us to capture each film at its optimum quality. We remove any blank sections from your home movies, add music and titles if desired and output to DVD. Our cine to DVD service produces excellent results and there is no flicker or centre hotspot with our cine processing method even on very old 16mm 16 frames per second film.

If necessary, speed adjustment, colour correction and film grading is undertaken during the enhancement stage. This is free of charge and ensures a quality restoration of colour balance for your films.

We are so confident that you'll be impressed by the quality of our film conversion service that we offer a Free Demo DVD. This DVD shows a sample selection of the film transfers that we can do and the quality obtained. Please contact us for your free copy. No follow up sales calls are made.

Remember ordering extra copies of your DVD for friends and family is only £7.50 per DVD, at time of order. Additional copies supplied later 10.00 per DVD.

Review of Cine to DVD/Film Transfer - What Our Customers Say

We are always very pleased to hear feedback from our cine to dvd conversion service.

I asked Excelsior Film & Video to transfer my old Super-8 cine films to a format suitable for my home computer. Their service and communication were excellent but I wasn't prepared for the impact of the finished films. The quality is simply amazing. Each frame is individually captured so there is no flicker. I can now move frame by frame through my most treasured memories. Thank you Excelsior, a fully professional and affordable service. I would recommend them to anyone wishing to revisit films that remain forgotten in the attic......Mr P K Joyce 4th May 2012
