Film Scanning

Scanning is an ideal solution for bringing vintage film reels and footage into the digital age and safeguarding it for posterity. At The Ark Heritage, we use a state-of-the-art scanner that captures every detail of your original footage in high resolution. Our scanner is fast and reliable, delivering stunning digital files that you can store, share, and edit with ease.


We can scan both positive and negative film stock, as well as colour and black and white films. This can also be done at real-time speeds, saving you time and money. If you have a collection of old 35mm, 16mm or 8mm films that you want to preserve then we can help. Whether you have personal or professional films, we can help you transform them into stunning digital files that you can enjoy for generations to come.


Our scanning process is simple and convenient. You just need to send us your films and we will take care of the rest. We will inspect and clean your films before scanning them, ensuring the best possible quality. We can also adjust the brightness, contrast, and colour balance of your digital files, enhancing their clarity and vibrancy. We then send you your digital files in the format of your choice, such as FFV1, MP4, MOV or even DVD or Blu-Ray. You can also choose the resolution of your files, including SD, HD and 4K.


We are passionate about preserving the history and heritage of film. We have digitised and scanned thousands of films for individuals, businesses, and organisations. We have scanned films from various genres and eras and have scanned films that capture important moments, such as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, and historical milestones. We are proud to use our experience to offer a high-quality and affordable scanning service that can bring your old films back to life.
