4KMT is bringing the highest quality 4k digital captures of 8 to 16mm film to the Pacific Northwest. We work with new negative or reversal film fresh from the lab or treasured archive film, whether in pristine condition or shrunk, warped or torn and faded. Our rates will reflect the extraordinary savings made possible by the latest scanning equipment. We’’ll also have the capability to transport our portable system directly to archives, for capturing treasured materials that can’t leave their institutions.

Film images are made of grain, not pixels.
If you enlarge a scanned image, either by zooming in on a detail, or showing it on a large screen, you don’t want to see enlarged pixels obscuring the image.
Here’s a frame of grainy 16mm B&W negative, scanned as both pillarboxed HD
(to capture the entire 4:3 image without cropping) and at the normal Kinetta resolution of 3296 x 2472. Portions of each frame have been enlarged to show the same detail.
