Now Providing 8mm and Super 8mm Film Transfer Capabilities
We’re pleased to have recently added 8mm and Super 8mm film transfer capabilities to our film scanning capabilities. We’ve served the professional video production community in the Washington, DC area with our 16mm, Super 16mm and 35mm film services for decades and we’re excited to be able to serve an even wider audience with the addition of 8mm and Super 8mm capabilities.
We’ve been a preferred vendor for the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) since approximately 1994, handling some of our country’s most rare and important archival films. Our color correction team can also help alleviate the color problems that sometime arise when film has degraded. For instance, the Henninger team transferred and color corrected a film from the 1950’s for the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association in 2017.

Unlike traditional telecine machines, our Lasergraphics ScanStation allows for the conversion of film directly into digital form at speeds up to 30 frames per second (fps). Still or moving images and soundtrack are converted simultaneously to multiple digital formats, all in a single pass. The Lasergraphics ScanStation also handles films with perforation damage, splices and shrinkage very gently while still providing a superior quality transfer.
We can transfer 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm, Super 16mm or 35mm film to digital file formats, DVD, Blu-ray or other tape formats as requested and we’re conveniently located in Arlington, VA (right outside of Washington, DC). If you have film you’d like transferred, please contact us and our customer service team will walk you through the process.
