8mm Film To DVD
Our film preservation board highly recommends scanning your film using professional film scanning Datacine machine to both a reference copy for viewing (DVD or BluRay) plus a digital master (HD-AVI, ProRes or DPX). Digital Picture Exchange (DPX) is an ANSI/SMPTE standard and is widely used around the world for still frame storage in digital intermediate post production facilities and labs. Even though DPX is the best format, it can be difficult for the average consumer to use. In this case our film preservation board recommends a good quality (low compression) format like HD-AVI or ProRes. Both are 1080x1920 progressive formats. DVD and BluRay are good reference copies but because of the high compression cannot be considered a digital master of the film.
