How to Tell if You Are Getting a High Quality Transfer

Start by asking if they capture 100% of the film. As you can see above, losing 20% of your film makes a big difference. You also want to make sure that you are getting a frame by frame transfer. All our movie film transfers at Larsen Digital are done frame by frame. What does that mean? That means that we digitally capture each individual frame, which ensures that the black bars on the top & bottom of your movie film does not appear in your video. This gives you a smooth flicker free video. Make sure your transfers are done with a high quality machine that uses a high definition video camera to capture each frame. Some companies project your movie film on a wall and then record it and give you those files. This is definitely not a high quality transfer and is a very old school way of doing it. These tips will help insure that you are getting a high quality transfer and preserved your movie film for generations to come.
