At Archival NYC quality is not only our goal – it’s our obsession. We use better technology, better skill-sets, and most importantly take the actual time needed to provide a higher quality digital transfer of your analog film media.
Unlike the rest, our service is uniquely centered around providing genuine slow speed frame by frame SCANS of analog film (8mm, Super 8mm, and 16mm film) to digital files using the same equipment as the Academy of Motion Picture Archives and USC Archives so our results simply look beautiful. We take our time in color correction and employ delicate image restoration, striving to give your media new life in a digital equivalent as good as the original.
No job is too big or too small. We contract for large companies, nonprofits, universities, and organizations. We pride ourselves on open, clear communication all with the knowledge that your material is inherently personal and irreplaceable.

Media is inspected and cleaned with non toxic solvent. Any damage is repaired if necessary.
Media is consolidated in preparation for scanning.
Media is slowly scanned frame by frame to uncompressed HD files using superior imaging and optics.
Our process is completely sprocket-less allowing gentle transfers of sensitive and damaged materials
with ease. Multiple passes are used as necessary to ensure optimum results.
Files are slowly and carefully color corrected to achieve a natural image. “Turned” Color is restored to the most
natural possible balance. Delicate image restoration is employed where necessary.
