We at The Cine Film Factory have been have been thinking about writing a Blog in respect of how Film Transferred provides so much in enjoyment to everyone of our Customers who have this done & offers stimulation to others.

Then a perfect example was requested recently which gave us the opportunity to consider this Blog further & for many reasons feel now is the time to share.
Whilst over the years of Transferring 8mm 9.5mm 16mm Film to DVDs & Digital, thought we had heard from listening to Customers requests I.e. Golden Wedding Anniversary - Birthday - Fathers Day all these poignant Days in people's lives!

Then this one day The Cine Film Factory were approached by a Customer & presented with a very unique situation being, a immediate Family member had been involved in a serious accident at work, unfortunately leaving the person in question with significant Brain Damage showing no response of emotion.
With this situation with the legalities & Insurance companies involved there was an argument being played out with the Courts that the person would not have the ability to respond to their surroundings.

The Family were of course ever hopeful that a miracle would come of this terrible situation, We were advised that a therapist had suggested that sometimes sounds and visuals from the past can have stimulation in such situations, this now formed part of the reasoning as to the decisions for Care to be established.
We were presented with a selection of 8mm Cine Films of the person from their childhood to transfer to DVDs at the earliest opportunity, of course from understanding the situation stepped forward to assist as a matter of urgency.
After the Transfer the feedback we received from the family with huge anticipation on our part was delivered that they were amazed and so were the Doctors and care nurses that they had responded and made noises of recognition & cried, the Brain had drawn stimulation from the images recognised from riding a bike as a child, from a horrendous situation came positives & worked and we are told the DVDs of the Transfers are of huge source of comfort to the individual and are played regularly as they provide an early connection in their life that they have digressed to given the situation they are in.
The Family have since located VHS - Hi 8 Media that they have since had transferred to provide further enjoyment all carried out at The Cine Film Factory Studio in Worthing.

We have also since carried out Family Film transfers for families with loved ones suffering with Dementia - Parkinson's & other Brain related problems as the power of personal film collection memories provide so much comfort to remember the early years of life & can also help the memory in certain situations.
We have even carried out Film Transfers speedily for families to comfort those in the late stages of terminal Cancer as a comfort source for final hours even sounds & voices can be of huge comfort.

With all of this in mind want to reach out to anyone who may be able to relate to any of these situations to contact us without delay to discuss the Film Transfers.

Sony is finally saying goodbye to this 40-year-old device

Sony is finally saying goodbye to this 40-year-old device


The Betamax was released back in 1975, but it’s only now that Sony has decided to stop selling cassettes for it. When it was released back in 1975, the Betamax kicked off a major format war surrounding video recorders.

While VHS eventually dominated the industry, Sony continued to support its format long after its launch. It had stopped manufacturing the Betamax back in 2002 (having stopped selling them around the world in 1998) but continued to sell the cassettes and offer repairs for existing devices.

Now 13 years later, the company announced it will finally stop selling Betamax cassettes from March of next year, say Engadget. The Betamax was Sony’s attempt to dictate the video recording market, but while it was one of the first video machines to be commercially successful, it sold 2.3 million unit in 1984, it eventually lost out to VHS.

The main reason was because Betamax could only record one hour of footage at a time while VHS could record two or more. While Betamax cassettes were smaller, their inability to record longer shows or movies was a significant flaw. Sony did improve the duration of its tapes, and made the Betamax cheaper, the damage was already done.

If you still happen to use one, then you have a few more months to stock up on cassettes and supplies for it.

8mm Cine Film or 16mm Film Transferred to Digital Files

8mm Cine Film or 16mm Film Transferred to Digital Files


We Need Your Help!

As you may or may not be aware we offer a selection of transfer services here at The Cine Film Factory, however by far as of recent months the majority of our Customers are requesting transfer of 8mm cine film & transfer of 16mm film to Digital Video Files, over DVDs which we call service 2, rather than now what is appearing to be outdated transfer of old 8mm & 16mm to DVD, which we call transfer service 1.

Whilst we offer our digital transfer to digital video files for all media types, this ranges between 8mm cine films - 16mm films - vhs video tapes - vhs-c video tapes - video 8 - hi8 tapes - mini dv etc.

Are your Digital Transfers for Private use only - Social Media - or The Cloud?

We would be interested to know why choose digital video files?
Of course we have our own views on the convenience of transferring old film to digital files however as we seem to find out in the media nothing is ever secure in the digital world,
As this blog is being written we see on the News that Customers of the Ashley Madison Website are having their private information displayed for people to see on the internet.

We know from speaking to our Customers the majority find the convenience of having their 8mm & 16mm films transferred to digital video files rather than dvd offers them flexibility to view their film content via their own personal computers at home, let's remember given the age of some film, these may not have been viewed if at all for many years possibly extending to 10-20-30 plus years.

For many customers we create a key which is assigned to the individual 8mm cine film or 16mm film transfer file, this allows the customer the opportunity to view the transferred films at leisure then come back to us stating which number file they would like to be assigned to DVD-Video, we of course have a back up of the transfers the same as the customer gets so everyone knows what is where.

We have even in the past supplied film we have transferred from the 1920s - 1930s etc onto I Pads for customers, amazing hey! on the other scale imagine going back in time to early 1900s taking an I Pad with your film from this early era, sitting on a bench in a street in a public place whilst watching footage of the current day on the I Pad, could you imagine the reactions of the passersby as to what you are doing.

Well all of the above considered we would love to hear your thoughts on this subject and will share the some ideas you provide on a blog update in the near future.
