Our scanner provides a wetgate option for all formats of film.
When a scratch or vertical line in the film emulsion is filled with fluid, light will travel through the film with less refraction.
This results in less visibility of damaged parts of the film. We use standard film cleaner, Isopropanol 99.9%.
The high percentage of alcohol ensures that the fluid will evaporate before it winds up on the reel again.
Our scanner is equipped with a complete sprocketless transport system.
As film can shrink over time and/or sprockets can be damaged a continuous
motion transport is required. Our scanner also comes with a tension
control sensor which will monitor the tension during scanning;
tension can be adjusted during scanning.
This is the best way to be able to digitize different types of films.
Integrated in our scanners is an RGB LED solution and custom software.
The hardware system comprises a high power RGB LED lighting head with pulsed lighting power equivalent to around 350W, mated to a microprocessor controlled precision power driver. Included is a trigger sensor and Neodymium magnet.
A custom software application specifically designed for film capture with ability to provide on-the-fly RGB gamma correction and more complex functions for live colour negative processing.Features:
Auto restoration software comes integrated with the scanner
and is an available option for post-capture output

“Working with Digital Treasures was a great experience from start to finish. Our company needed to get some digital conversion work done quickly and at high quality and DT delivered on both accounts. They made the whole process simple and stress-free and provided us with a great quality product. We’re already planning to do repeat business converting our old video archive and I would highly recommend their services to others.”
“The David Suzuki Foundation turned 25 years old this week! The Foundation trusted Digital Treasures with 25 years’ worth of irreplaceable archival video footage. Marc and team were a pleasure to work with every step of the way. Professional, trustworthy and an outstanding finished product. Expectations exceeded.
Thank you for helping to preserve and share our history.”
“I have this afternoon received the return of my film and your digital scans. A quick look and I'm thrilled! Thank you so much for the clearly considered attention to my requests.
I'm also recommending you to friends at the Vancouver Art Gallery Imaging Department. More to come, with again sincere thanks for this.”
