Supported Formats

We provide all modern Digital Media Such as DVD-Video - Blu-Ray - USB Flash - External Hardrive for your TV with USB Compatibility - We can even assist you with Drop Box & online storage cloud options with soloutions. Contact us to learn more.


Given the age now of celluloid film, believe it or not many around the 50 year mark, we have adopted a very systematic approach whilst handling this film prior to transfer to protect any fracturing of the film compound which includes manual delicate lubrication & cleaning with air drying which is paramount, making them sparkle again.


If your not confident carrying out editing yourself, just tell us what your vision is & we will cater your bespoke theme for you, so all you have to do is sit back & enjoy.

“Thank you so much, I am delighted with DVD you made of the 3 films I sent you. I had no idea what was on them but having watched the DVD when I received it today I think one of the films must have been over 50 years old and the others 35+. I am amazed by the results and am so glad I sent them to you. They bring back lots of memories.”

Hi Simon,

Just wanted to let you know that my dad , my sister and myself have all watched the dvd’s that you did for us from our old cine film and we all thought they were just fantastic!

My dad was telling us who everybody was and it obviously brought back a lot of memories for him.It was also so nice for me and my sister to see footage of the family house – The Cedars – and also of our Grandfather who we never met.Just to see him walking around was really odd!

Thank you so much for the brilliant job you did.

Many Many Thanks,

Sue Dilley

Fantastic service!! Having only seen these films as a vhs copy of a vhs, cine film factory have been able to show me the clear faces of my grandparents who I never had the chance to meet.

Their communication was fantastic and the turnaround time was brilliant too. Thank you so much

Rosanna O'Hara

Thank you for the excellent service you provided, converting Cinefilm to DVD. You understood how precious these reels are and you explained the process and kept me well informed during the whole order.

It has been amazing seeing the old footage which has been hidden in a loft for years. So many memories. Thank you again and I would highly recommend.

Lesley Smithers

Our MotorCycle Club had several thousand feet of 16mm sound and silent films some of which went back to pre-war. Much of the footage was in a poor state and probably about to expire.

Cine Factory cleaned up and stabilised the film then copied it to MP4.

We are extremely pleased with the results and can now enjoy our library on club nights without having to set up our ancient projectors and screen.

The Sunbeam Motorcycle Club

Dear Simon,

Thank you so much - what a brilliant job you have done on the transfers I'm so pleased with the results and certainly brought back some memories.

Please pass my gratitude and thanks to all the team.

Again thank you so much.

Kind Regards, Richard

Richard Breckon

A really great professional service and a big thank you to Simon for taking the time and trouble to explain the process from cine to DVD.
What a wonderful treat to see all the old films from my childhood which brought back lovely memories.
Loved the results so much that I've ordered copies for my relatives to enjoy as well.
Have no hesitation in recommending Simon's excellent first class service to friends.
