8mm Film to Digital
Film Transfers: 8mm Film to Digital
Launched in 1932 by Kodak for many years, 8mm film was at the centre of the home movie industry. It’s what most people used to record their lives until the mid-1970s. In these digital days, we’re used to streaming our media online or storing it digitally—but there are still plenty of people with old-fashioned 8mm film reels sitting around gathering dust. 

The problem with 8mm film is that it doesn't last forever and projectors to view the images break down over time. Depending on how the images are stored, they can deteriorate and you run the risk of losing important footage.

That’s where VideoMedia comes in! With our 8mm film to digital transfer service, you can breathe new life into your 8mm film. We’ll convert your old film reels into high quality digital files that you can easily watch whenever you’d like. Our technicians are highly trained in the art of film restoration and will work closely with you to ensure that your 8mm film transfers look their best.

Work is done on-site by our team of experts, so we’re able to keep an eye on quality at every step. Our skilled technicians treat each of your films with care, and our industry-standard equipment will make ensure that we get the best possible picture from your film.

To begin the digitization process, you need to find and gather all of your 8mm film reels you'd like converted. You can either drop them off at our Montreal location or have them couriered to us.

Once your film arrives at our on-site laboratory, our technicians assess its quality and condition. If there is any damage or other problem with the film, you will be informed immediately so that you can make an informed decision about how best to proceed. We can repair damaged reels, but only after obtaining your permission and only if it's possible to retain the integrity of your original recording.

Your film is then meticulously digitized one frame at a time using state- of- the- art scanners, to ensure that no detail of your memories is lost.

Once the digitization procedure is complete, your files will be converted to the digital format of your choice of (USB drivekey, DVD, or external hard drive or any other device of your choice).

My mom passed away back in 2008 and I randomly found this tape VHS with no way of knowing what was on it, so I needed a service that was able to convert it onto a CD or USB, anything. I am so happy I found this VideoMedia. There were able to transfer it flawlessly and now this is the last footage of have of my mom on camera, I get to see her and hear her voice. I'm so happy I have this footage forever now. The service was great and Michel was so kind :)

J'ai fait mettre sur 3 clés des vieux films et des diapositives qui dataient de plus de 35 ans et vraiment ils ont fait un job exceptionnel.  Ils sont très professionnels et le service impeccable, d'autant plus que les prix sont plus qu'abordables.  Un gros MERCI.
