TMTV INC. NELSON BC CANADA

We are listed with KODAK Motion Picture Transfer & Processing (developing) Facilities and serving Canadian & USA customers since 1980 - We are a company you can trust with years of experience and using the latest, state-of-the-art motion picture film scanning (Transfer) equipment. We will beat ANY competitor's pricing in North America that offers the same quality of motion picture film scanning and provide further discounts.

 

TRUE Single Frame Digital Motion Picture Film Scanning™ (Transfer) - one frame scanned at-a-time

Each frame of the film is stopped, scanned and advanced to the next frame. Each frame can take seconds to scan not frames scanned in seconds...this is TRUE single frame film transfers.

TRANSFER IN SD (standard definition) or HD (High definition)

A single frame of Super 8mm film scanned in HD from our TMTVISION Digital Motion Picture Film Scanner. Click on the photo for a larger image.

Film scanning of 8mm, Super 8mm, Super 16, 16mm silent or sound, colour, B&W or negative motion picture films for home movies, the professional movie maker or for our film recovery, restoration and archival services. Film is scanned (transferred) and can be output to: HD Blu Ray DVD, SD DVD or many of the file formats for editing on your computer.

Film is scanned (RAW, however we do provide "Best Light" exposure and White "balance") each frame of film is individually scanned, uncompressed in HD onto our hard drives. Once there, we can view the scanned files immediately and then export them in standard definition (SD) or high definition (HD) files placed on a portable hard drive that can then be plugged into your non-linear computer edit system (NLE) and then edited. There are options to provide post scene by scene color and exposure/density correction and exported to a completed movie in various files of your choice or make DVD or Blu Ray HD Master discs for playback and distribution.

CAPTURE FILE TYPE AND RESOLUTION

We scan at 1080p HD to a 24 bit 8:8:8, progressive format in16:9, 1920 wide x 1080 high. We have found that 720p is actually high enough resolution to carry all the useful detail within a super 8 or regular 8mm frame. However, if you have HD editing software, a computer that can handle HD video and/or HD TV and Blu Ray DVD player then 1080P HD video files or Blu Ray DVD masters is an option. The quality is exceptional.

EXPORT FILE TYPES
After scanning, we can export your transferred movies to several file formats, which are all PC or Mac compatible: M-JPEG .MOV QUICK TIME AND NUMBERED IMAGE SEQUENCE IN JPEG, PNG, BMP OR TIFF IMAGES.

VIDEO FILES

.MOV QUICK TIME video files in the MOTION JPEG (M-JPEG) codec.

 Though sometimes conversationally mistaken for the MPEG codec, please note that the "M"-JPEG codec is NOT the same thing as MPEG. The preferred M-JPEG codec maintains individual data for each frame of film on a separate digital video frame while the MPEG codec uses information from preceding video frames to fill in missing information on the next video frame.

NUMBERED IMAGE SEQUENCE

SAMPLE OF: Numbered image sequences, otherwise known as Individual Image Frames or Image Sequences (sequential still image files) what we call NIS files. This jpeg image frame was originally scanned RAW (with no colour or exposure correction) at 24 bit in High Definition. The RAW images here, has been reduced in size for display on the website. We can provide colour grading (best light) colour and adjust exposure during scanning, but when going to (NIS) we usually scan RAW and output to the NIS file format of your choice so all colour/expose can be manipulated in post with either a video editing program or a photo program such as Photoshop .

A folder with every frame of film scanned RAW on an individual, digital still/image frame that is numbered sequentially. These frames can be in JPEG, TIFF, PNG, or BMP in SD or HD. (Most common file type used by our clients is JPEG or TIFF).

This image sequence can be imported with a mouse click as one group into most NLE systems where the NLE will automatically string the individual frames together to create a video file using the codec that is unique to that system. Final playback speeds can be applied using the speed change function on your NLE timeline.

EXPORT RESOLUTION AND SIZES

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION ON FILE FORMATS

Files are NTSC video (North America and Japan) but we can output to PAL.

High definition video files are native 720p or 1080p, depending on the needs of your NLE system.

Numbered Image Sequences and .MOV Quick time can be SD or HD 720p or 1080p.

NOTE: All HD video files and HD image sequences are 16:9 with black pillar bars on the left and right side of the film frame. There is no option to fill the entire 16:9 digital frame with a film frame because the different aspect ratios would mean losing film frame content due to cropping. If you want to fill the 16:9 digital frame with a film frame, you will need to crop or stretch using your NLE system.
 
We can create HD video on Blu-ray Disc or SD video on DVDs for playing on your Mac, PC NLE system, Blu Ray or DVD player or export files to a portable hard drive, SD cards, USB flash drive or DVD M-Disc for file storage, archiving and later use. NOTE: Files are very large and USB flash drives, SD cards and DVDs are limited by the amount of information (files) that can be stored. The BEST option for file storage when dealing with a large amount of files is a portable "plug and play" 3.0 USB hard drive.

Safe on film: The film scanner features a safe scan zero image area contact at the gate and rubber guide rollers that handle the film only by the edges for maximum film safety. No sprockets, no advance claw, no capstan, no pinch roller, no belts, means no film damage. These custom built Digital Film Transfer Scanner Systems are also used for our Film Recovery, Archival and Restoration scanning (transfer) service.

Whether you need SD (standard def) or HD (high def transfers), all films are scanned at full 1080p uncompressed. Files are then down-converted to your choice of format from the original HD uncompressed scans for maximum clarity.  

SETTINGS FOR SCANNING: Our system will be color & white balanced before transfer and we will maintain average uniform exposure. If you choose us to transfer your films to the “NIS (Numbered Image Sequence) FILE” format, they will be RAW files and the transfers will have color and brightness that can be enjoyed "as is". But final brightness, contrast & gamma along with RGB control and color correction can be performed on your edit system to suit your personal taste. NOTE: If you are having TMTV create and edit a completed DVD or BluRay disc after transfer, all footage can be colour, exposure and density corrected by our Colorist.

SOUND FILM

Create WAV or PVM audio files from our Optical Sound Reader for 16mm or Optical/Magnetic Sound Reader for Super 8 with single or two track sound in real time from the audio track of the motion picture. Uncompressed WAV files are created at 48bit quality for both right and left channels. Audio WAV FILES allows for immediate use in any editing program or archival storage.

We can provide complete audio restoration and re-master from the magnetic sound strip (track) from Super8mm or optical sound track from 16mm film and the WAV audio file can then be synchronized with the scanned film to create a completed sound movie. Special services are available for 16mm optical sound film.

THE AUDIO CAN BE ENHANCED BY REMOVING CLICKS, POPS AND CRACKLES, CLEAN & BOOST  LOW AUDIO. If you are choosing us to edit your film, the sound track can then be replaced back with the film to produce clean, clear audio to go along with your moving pictures. Otherwise we can simply supply the WAV Audio Files for you to edit on your editing program.

FILM CONDITION BEFORE SCANNING (TRANSFER) - CLEANING & LUBRICATION: Single Frame Digital Motion Picture Film Scanning™  All films are cleaned, lubricated and preserved and prepped before transfer to repair bad splices and to look for potential bad film. If your film is in excellent condition, cleaning lubrication may not be required, in this case we will only perform basic cleaning and or lubrication. This would be determined during visual inspection when the films arrive at the lab.

FILM RECOVERY & RESTORATION: Films that are in poor condition such as bent, warped or brittle will have to be put through our recovery process and can only be transferred by digital scanning to avoid further damage to the film. Click on the link: http://www.tmtv.net/motion_picture_movie_film_restoration_recovery_warped_shrunk_8mm_16mm.html  Film recovery includes the cost of Single frame scanning.

PROCESSING TIME: Average processing time for TMTVISION Digital Single Frame Scanning is 5 business days. This does does however depend on how large your order is and how busy the lab is at the time of your films arrival at our lab. Please contact us before sending in your footage for specific delivery times, especially if you are facing a tight deadline for a particular project. RUSH ORDERS CAN BE ACCEPTED but this depends on current work load and the size of your order. This would determine the length of time it takes for transfer. Additional charges apply for rush orders. We have several scanners to handle large orders in a short period of time.

A hard drive stores the most data, which is why we highly recommend having your films transferred to an archival file format and those files placed on a portable hard drive.

Before requesting a quote for your film please prepare a physical description of your film as best you can. You may also send the film to our lab for a no obligation inspection and quote.

Please supply the following:

Name:

Phone Number:

Location:

How you heard about TMTV?

What is the format of your film, Regular 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm or 35mm?

Does the film have a sound track? (99% of Regular/double 8mm film is silent, some Super 8mm or 16mm film could have a sound track). If you see a brown strip or stripe on either 16mm or Super 8mm in could be sound. If your 16mm has sprocket holes on one side of the film only and not both sides there could be an optical sound track or magnetic sound track (brown stripe). If you don't know we will check for this during our inspection process.

What is the approximate date? (This helps determine the type of film and possible condition).

Approximately how long is each reel? measured in feet or reel size. (See chart sizes above).

Is the film colour or black and white?

Is it negative or positive film? (8mm and Super 8mm is usually positive film).

Is the film on reels or cores? 8mm and Super 8mm film would normally be on reels. Some 16mm & 35mm may be on cores.

What file format do you require? IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT FILE FORMAT YOU REQUIRE AT THIS TIME DON'T WORRY, WE CAN HELP YOU WITH THIS DECISION. There are MANY options including: High Definition (HD, Standard Definition (SD) in the following file formats including; Numbered Image Sequence Images (NIS), .MOV, DVD in SD, Blu Ray HD masters and/or copies. We can create copies of the masters for distribution to family and friends. The DVDs we create are not copy protected so you can make your own copies if you wish. Make sure you only make copies from the master to maintain quality.

IF wanting DVD masters will you want to add titles, credits, menus or other introductory material to the masters and copies?

FILM CONDITION:

What decay and damage does the film exhibit: Does your film smell bad, look moldy or does it show physical signs of a white powder or dirt and dust, colour fading, shrinkage, warping and curling, image deterioration, tears, broken splices, damaged perforations, water damage or vinegar syndrome? If on metal reels are the reels or cans rusty? (See ""More info" below if your film shows any of the above signs), otherwise just supply us the following; Film condition: Excellent, Good, Poor.

Most Super 8mm film is found to be in good condition, some regular 8mm film & 16mm film can be in poorer condition depending on its age and stored condition. If your film is in poor condition, has a white powder or smells like vinegar (or just smells bad), then your film will need to be cleaned, lubricated, restored & preserved or recovered. More information on film recovery and restoration: Does your film smell like vinegar or have a bad odor, warped, shrunk, brittle, twisted? Then your film may need recovery before transfer.

We provide;*minor repairs & film cleaning, minor scratch removal If your film is broken or the splices have come unglued or separated then splicing/editing will have to be performed.  *Minor repairs: Broken or missing splices, minor sprocket damage, films mounted backwards re-mounted will be repaired or corrected. Films that have major damage or majority of films that are mounted backwards, major sprocket damage, broken, missing splices or extremely dirty, additional charges may apply. Any film reels that are damaged, moldy or rusty will be replaced at additional cost.

The film will be inspected upon arrival to TMTV and if there are any major issues we will contact you before proceeding.

FREE FILM INSPECTION: You may ship your films to us for a complete hands-on inspection and quote with no obligation. If you choose not to have your films restored, cleaned or transferred after inspection by our technicians you would only pay for the shipping to and from our lab.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SUBMITTING ORDERS TO THE LAB: If you choose to send films to our lab for transfer please e-mail or phone us before sending so we can make sure you are fully informed about the process, the options available and shipping instructions.

When submitting film to the lab please number them CLEARLY in order of sequence, Example: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. (do not use POST-IT Notes, they fall off).

MIXING FILM FORMATS: R-8MM, S-8MM, 16MM with or without sound: If you have a mixture of different film formats (a combination of R-8mm, Super8, Super8 with sound or 16mm) we request that you do not mix the formats (or splice R 8mm with Super 8mm) if possible. If you require us to switch between formats for particular reels adds significantly to the transfer time and could result in an additional service charge. To avoid this simply ensure that the order of your transfer places all reels of a certain format together (R-8mm & Super8, Super8 with sound, 16mm or 16mm with sound respectively).
