True Frame-by-Frame scanning

?
Most companies run the film continuously at regular speed and capture the running film as it plays. Legacy Digital however uses it’s special “Frame by Frame” scanning system which captures each frame individually in beautiful high definition with far greater color depth and clarity straight to our storage system. This provides you with a frame accurate, fully digital frame by frame transfer.

Full HD laboratory grade optical scanning

?
Full HD Resolution Scanning. Our equipment uses laboratory grade optics to give our clients the highest resolution available in the film industry today. Resolution up to 1080p available (1920×1080) on Hard Drive or Blu-ray disc only. This format is too large for DVDs.

Touchless scanning system

?
Unlike other machines used for transferring, with our state-of-the-art equipment the picture portion of your film is never touched.

Cold LED lighting technology

?
We only use cold LED technology to light the film. Unlike hot bulbs used by most, LED technology keeps your film from heating up with causes premature aging and degradation. A hot bulb could also damage your film in the event of a jam if left unattended.

Film cleaned, reconditioned and lubricated

?
We clean and recondition your film. This re-lubricates brittle film, removes oxidation, and removes dust from your film preparing it for the best possible picture quality. We use the same film cleaners as the Hollywood studios. Watch out for those who save money by using isopropyl alcohol. That is a drying agent and will damage your film. Good film cleaner costs 10 times as much as alcohol but we believe you are worth it.

Multiple reels spliced onto new 400′ reels.

?
We will splice your reels together onto new 400′ reels. This will make it easier for you to store them in the future.

Multiple File Formats

?
Several file choices are available such as .avi, .mov, .mpg, .mp4, .m4v, etc. Compressed and uncompressed formats are also available for video professionals.

Compatiblity guarantee

?
We guarantee that your converted films will be playable in any standard DVD or Blu-ray player. If you are receiving your files on a flash or hard drive, we guarantee that they will be accessible and editable by any of the commonly used video editing applications such as iMovie, Adobe Primiere, Final Cut, Pinnacle Studio, AVS, Corel VideoStudio, PowerDirector, Magix Movie Edit, Sony Movie Studio and others.

Free local Southern California pickup and delivery*

?
If you are in the Southern California area and your order meets certain requirements – and we are able to schedule a convenient time to meet, we will personally pick up and deliver your film. You may also drop the film off and pick it up at our offices in Orange, CA, or ship your film via FexEd or UPS.

Post-edit to adjust color, saturation, contrast and exposure

?
We take things to a whole new level with our premium service. A lot of time goes into a proper post editing process. After your film is digitally converted, frame by frame, we then digitally edit it to bring out additional color and clarity. We adjust the color, saturation, contrast and exposure to provide you with the best quality digital version of your film which can be made available to you.

(Only available on this page)

Right now, for a limited time, we are offering our Premium Transfer Services for the same price as our Basic Service, a savings of 36%.

While the other film transfer companies offer lower-tech Standard Definition running transfers at 720×480 resolution known as 480i (345,600 dots), Legacy Digital’s Hard Drive and Blu-ray options provide true Frame by Frame scanning at 6x their resolution giving you a much better end result.

Our 1920×1080 (2,073,600 dots) full HD 1080p resolution using laboratory grade optics that blow away the competition. This means you end up with a much cleaner and clearer picture – the highest resolution for transfers currently available in the film transfer industry today.

We have the same equipment and techniques used to convert the classic archives including originals from Alfred Hitchcock and many others. When you choose legacy, you will love us too!”
