16mm Film to DVD Transfer

View AMRS Film Transfer Demo Video

Why do you need to have your movie films transferred to DVD? Besides ease of use and sharing, old movie film can be subject to many factors that cause its deterioration. Moisture, mold, dirt and time all have negative effects on movie film. Properly stored and maintained films can last a lifetime, but the truth is that most film quality will decrease with age. Other factors, such as the quality of the original processing and storage environment will affect the film's quality over time. 16mm films especially are vulnerable to "vinegar syndrome", a type of mold that attacks the film emulsion.
