Super8 Sound Film to Digital
Film Transfers: Super 8 Sound Film to Digital
Kodak first introduced Super 8 sound film in 1973 as a way to combine the benefits of both Super 8 motion picture film and magnetic sound onto a single film roll.

This format was very popular in schools and businesses for many years due to its low cost and ease of use. But it lost ground when digital video cameras became more affordable. Consequently, Kodak discontinued production of Super 8 Sound film in 2005. However, many people still want to digitize their Super 8 recordings so they can be more easily stored and shared or archived for posterity.

With VideoMedia digitization service, you can have your Super 8 Sound footage transferred to digital files. We’ll digitize, restore and transfer your old film reels into high-quality digital files that you can view easily whenever you'd like.

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.
