How It Works

Film to DVD

Converting your old films to DVDs is one of the most important functions we perform here at Southtree. The process of converting old film requires careful attention and technical precision.

We’ve built a digitization studio intentionally to process film transfers here at our headquarters in Chattanooga, TN. Each transfer is handled and overseen by a trained technician who controls and monitors the entire process.

When you convert your old film stock to DVD, you’re preserving it in a format that will stand the test of time. Film stock inevitably deteriorates over time, especially when they aren’t perfectly and expensively preserved. No matter the format and no matter the age of the film, eventually it will begin to break down under normal storage conditions. DVDs on the other hand can be safely preserved for decades and decades.


Our Story

DVDs are an amazing technological advance. They last for a very long time, and storing them is as easy as putting them in their box and keeping them on the shelf (make sure the shelf isn’t made of fire).

DVDs are also the prevailing method of watching movies today – the odds are great that you’ve got one in your home right now (and they’re definitely on the shelf of your local electronics store) and the odds are pretty low that you’ve still got the kind of projector you’ll need to watch your film (and that’s something you won’t find at the electronics super store). If you’ve got lot of old film that you can’t access, it’s time to make the film to DVD switch with Southtree. Get back together with your memories.

Moments, delivered.
