Keep in mind that most companies that offer film transfer services usually record a reflected light projection straight off a screen, resulting in flickering and washed out images.

Triad uses equipment specifically designed to project your film directly into a recording device, resulting in the best possible quality transfer.

See our Frequently Asked Questions for more information on our film transfer process and some of the issues you should be aware of.

Very few facilities in the world transfer film using the high-quality process we use. This is why we are happy to offer our services to international customers. If you are outside Canada and would like to transfer your 8mm, Super 8 or 16mm film please contact us and we can advise you on cost and how to ship your film.

Please note that to transfer film to DVD we highly recommend a master transfer to a high-quality tape format such as MiniDV or Betacam SP be made first. Please contact us for details.
