9.5mm Cine Film to DVD
Much of this film dates from the 1940’s and 1950’s so special handling is required to transfer this to achieve the quality it deserves, fortunately we have years of experience handing this fragile film, Baby Pathé reels are wound very tightly so requires gentle unwinding and re-winding on larger hubs before transfer, we add modern acetate leader and tails so non of this precious film is missed in transfer, fortunately our machine is sprocktless so can handle this film gently without damaging the sprockets and adjacent film cells.
This Pathé format was in use from the early 1920’s until the mid 1960’s. Most of it is black and white films but there are some colour films in this format still in existence and both of which still hold good quality images.
Although the film gauge is only 9.5mm this film format has nearly the same picture area per frame as 16mm, 9.5mm Pathé film is easly identifiable by the sprocket holes being in the centre of the film rather than at the side like 16mm film.
We scan to HD or 4K and supply high quality digital files or discs in DVD or Blu-Ray formats. Our film transfer process involves cleaning, repair and then frame scanning (flash scanning) each film cell then re-animating at the correct speed, we also carry out colour and contrast corrections for badly faded film, other corrections can include stabilisation, de graining, dust and dirt removal. Our system also includes a wet gate which is ideal for badly scratched and damages films.
