"Really impressed with Digital Converters. Would definitely use them again."

Joanne Britton

"I was unsure if I should have my 14 old films converted so I telephoned the company and after a chat with an extremely nice man I decided to go ahead. The films were at least 28 years old but they were all successfully converted. Wow! I am so pleased with the results. I would recommend this company without a doubt. They completed the job when they said they would despite it being the Jubillee holiday. Thank you so very much. "

Daphne Bourne

"I didn’t know what to expect when I sent a old VHS tape to be converted to a Cloud file but was amazed by how easy it was to send off, then to download and by the quality of the finished file. Special memories. I would urge anyone to use Digital Converters and can highly recommend."

Jennifer Milsom

"A friendly face, a pleasant exchange of a few words, handing over of the parcel and a cheerful 'Good by' wave. Thank you."

Gisela Banbury

"Was worried my old camcorder tapes would not be watchable after being stored in my attic for nearly 30 years, so I sent one to digit converters (just to test the water, so to speak). I got back my original tape and the usb stick really quickly and was not disappointed! I’m now going to send the rest of my tapes off for transfer. Would definitely recommend "

Convert cine film reels into
DVDs and digital files.

Cine film is the oldest video format. That’s great, because it holds amazing moments from the past. That’s worrying, because it’s deteriorating and could be lost.

All sorts of footage is stored on cine film around the UK and we’re determined to preserve as much of it as we can.

Thanks to the incredible frame-by-frame scanning technology available, converting cine film to digital produces incredibly clear results.

Our highly-trained technicians use the best, professional-grade equipment to carefully capture and preserve your cine film footage and treat your memories as if they were their own.

Even though cine film isn't commonly used as a recording medium anymore, the memories it holds deserve to be preserved and enjoyed for many years to come.
