Copied to a Usable Format

Have a working film projector? No worries, Heirloom transfers 16mm, 8mm & Super 8 video reels to digital. Many home movie films were silent, but we capture any audio on film that include sound strips. Heirloom converts all video reels to a portable MP4 digital file that you can play on any computing device, for life.

Unrecoverable Film Reels

Heirloom quotes a unit price to process each film reel received at our digitizing facility. We occasionally unspool a reel so old that the dried out film crumbles into pieces. With a vision of No Memory Left Behind, this breaks our heart, and furthers our mission to preserve memories before it’s too late. Heirloom credits your account for any unrecoverable reels.

Digital Video Integrity

There is no need organize your pictures before sending them to Heirloom. We sort your photos by type and size, while maintaining the order of any groupings in your kit. Each picture is an individual file, uniquely numbered by order number, product type, and sequence number. Pictures are easy to rename or add a description on Heirloom.
