16mm film has 2K horizontal lines of resolution. In order to archive the film a 2k (2048 vertical ×1556 horizontal) 16mm film transfer is required. Our Pro 2K service scans the film at 2k and down converts it to give you the best looking HD video or SD DVD possible. This is a trick Hollywood has played for years. They start with a high resolution scan of 35mm film at either 2k or 4k. They then down convert and compress it to DVD or BluRay. Only a small fraction of the visual quality is lost during a down conversion because there is so must more data when the video is down converted and compressed they can make a much better looking DVD or BluRay. A DVD from a 2k scan will look 2-3 times better than a DVD from a 480 line film scanner (DVD has 480 horizontal lines of resolution). So, we can play the same trick to give you a great looking conversion of 16mm film to DVD or BluRay and other digital formats.

New Bedford Fun Facts: The origins of New Bedford trace back to the mid-1600s, when settlers founded the colonial town of Old Dartmouth (which encompassed the present-day communities of Dartmouth, New Bedford, Acushnet, Fairhaven, and Westport). A portion of this colony, originally called Bedford Village, was officially incorporated as the town of New Bedford in 1787. The name Bedford was suggested by the Russell family, prominent citizens of the community, due to the fact that "Russell" was the actual family surname of England's Duke of Bedford. The prefix "New" was added to avoid a name conflict with the previously-incorporated city of Bedford, Massachusetts.

Massachusetts Fun Facts: One of the original 13 colonies and one of the six New England states, Massachusetts (officially called a commonwealth) is known for being the landing place of the Mayflower and the Pilgrims. English explorer and colonist John Smith named the state for the Massachuset tribe. Boston, the state capital, was a hotbed of activity, including the Boston Massacre and the Boston Tea Party, during the American Revolution. In addition to its revolutionary spirit, the state is known for sparking the American Industrial Revolution with the growth of textile mills in Lowell, and for its large Irish-American population.
