Cine Film Transfers

At DVD Centre we specialise in cine film transfers to digital formats and DVD. We use state-of-the-art, frame-by-frame scanning systems which guarantees you get the best quality available. Please note that all 8mm and 16mm films are digitized on site by our trained technicians. We never send out customers’ films to third parties for scanning.

Most cine film is now over 35 years old - many collections need to be digitised before they deteriorate any further. Now is the time to take action if you want to save those Super 8 and 16mm family memories.


Restoration can improve the quality of many old cine films. For example, if your film is under exposed, over exposed or discoloured, our film technicians can dramatically improve the picture quality.


After scanning we can edit the film and change the running order of clips, add titles, background music and narration. You can tell us how you want it done or simply give us broad guidelines.

High Definition Film Scanning

Our High Definition film scanning system produces superb quality results. Broadcasters like RTE, film archives and libraries all use our services. If you want the best results from your film scanning, talk to us now about your requirements. You are welcome to drop into our offices in Dublin city centre.
