why we provide a careful and unique process in handling your life
memories. After we transfer your film we provide you with a PROOF DVD
of all you footage thus allowing us to edit out or rearrange your film
as you direct and add titles, chapters, buttons, and menus.
This is how we transfer your film. First off, we repair your old film as it is needed.

film leader where it is necessary. The cleaning and lubrication process
is important in getting the most out of the transfer. Many of our
competitors destroy the old film in the process, where here, at triple
a, we return your film in better shape than when you brought it in.
That is pride in what we do and all of this is included at no additional charge.
your film is clean as a whistle, we digitize it at 30 frames per second
to preserve the original quality. Transferring your film to a digital
level is a unique and very important process. Some amateur transfers
try to shoot the image by projecting your film on a wall and record it
using a camcorder.
Bootlegging your film can cause
key framing, blurring and can make grandma look distorted and out of
focus. Now, you don?t want that. That is why our true digital
transfer is superior to the rest. Here at The MultiMedia Centers, your film is
transmitted through a digital RGB chip board where it can be digitally
coded and preserved.
There we can take and custom edit it, and package it to fit your individual needs and budget.
Remember, we offer you a free written estimate of what it will cost to transfer your family film treasures to a MDV, DVD and as an option to an External Hard Drive too!
You may take this written estimate and all your film back home with you
and proceed with the transfer if and when you are ready.

squeeze old Bessie in front. Just write a 2a on one and a 2b on the
