Preserving family memories has long been a common theme for many families. For decades, families have been filming important moments in their lives. From weddings to birthdays to graduations and christenings, home videos have captured those special times.
Now, however, families can no longer watch many of those old home videos. There are no projectors or video players left to show them to future generations. Should we just move on and leave those memories in the past? No! If you convert film to DVD in Denver, future generations can enjoy those special moments time and again. There are two options, however. Will you opt for a DVD format or a digital video file? Let’s look at the advantages and disadvantages of each.
If you transfer video to DVD, there are several benefits:
DVDs are easy to store in the home.
Most people own a Blu-ray or DVD player that is capable of playing DVDs.
You can still purchase DVD players in stores.
You can personalize the case cover and disc face to make a lovely gift.
However, there are some drawbacks as well:
A single-sided, single-layer, standard DVD can hold only 4.7 gigabytes of data. This is only about two hours of footage at a high quality. You will need one DVD for every standard play, full-length videotape.
DVD drives are not standard in most computers. That means you’ll probably need to purchase a DVD external drive if you want to watch DVDs on your computer.
While you can copy DVD files onto a PC, then, play them via your player, this isn’t a user-friendly format.
Converting VHS to digital files is a popular choice these days. MOV, AVI, and MP4 files are all commonly used. The benefits include:
You are able to keep all the converted footage on an external hard drive or flash drive. This means you can conveniently access the footage on USB-friendly devices or PCs.
You can easily edit AVI, MOV, and MP4 files using editing software.
You can easily upload and share MP4s over the Internet with loved ones.
On the downside, however:
Because of their small size, it is very easy for a person to lose flash drives. Therefore, you need to store them carefully.
People who do not understand technology will struggle to enjoy and watch family memories.
Original copies of videos will degrade over time. Film deteriorates and will, eventually, become unwatchable. This makes it imperative for those who want to preserve those special memories to convert their files. Here at Reborn, we can convert film to DVD in Denver or convert your home movies to digital files. We can also provide both DVDs and digital files of your film, so you have even more protection against loss.

Developed in the 1920s, 8 millimeter film is a form of optical storage. It captures each motion picture frame on 8 millimeter film in negative form. In the past, the only way to view this footage was to use a projector. Users could then display the images on either a wall or a screen in a darkened room. After Beta and VHS technology came along, a lot of people chose to transfer their 8 millimeter reels to video format. They did this by projecting their home movies onto a screen then capturing that projection with a camcorder. You can still do this today. However, there is a better way to transfer 8 millimeter film to DVD in Denver.
Even today, one way to capture 8 millimeter film is to project it and then capture it with a camera. This process is Real Time Telecine Transfer. There are a number of widgets available that enable this. This is a convenient, quick, and cheap way for you to transfer your 8 millimeter film to video. However, it has a few negative aspects you must bear in mind.
Because of the projector’s gate, you will lose around 15 percent of the footage at the edge of the frame.
The film’s frame rate remains unknown during playback. When the projector’s source light frequency does not match up with the camcorder’s scanning rate, flickering is the result.
The resulting image is not smooth or stable.
The video has a lower resolution. It is capturing images from a smaller screen then enlarging them with a different lens.
A new method has now become available to transfer 8 millimeter film to DVD in Denver. At one time, only Hollywood and large corporations could use frame-by-frame scanning methods. These used a scanner at high resolution to scan every frame. Then, special software could patch all the individual frames together. The result would be a continuously running movie. Just a few years ago, it was prohibitively expensive to use this method. However, since the cost has come down, digitizing companies, such as Reborn, can access it. We can offer frame-by-frame scanning so you can digitize and store your 8 millimeter film on DVD.
There are a number of benefits offered by this scanning method. They include:
Being able to capture video at a high definition up to 1080 pixels.
No risk of films burning out because of the cool and bright LED lights used.
The image quality produced by this method is highly superior.
You can capture the entire frame with no loss of image at the edges.
There is no chance of the film being damaged since the mechanism has no sprockets.
It is possible to capture the film in HD quality for long-term archiving.
