In order to preserve and provide access to moving image material we digitise items from the collection. The transfer of analogue film and video to digital files allows researchers, academics, heritage professionals, broadcasters and members of the public to view material remotely. This facilitates work to be carried out much more easily particularly on international and national research projects.

EAFA provides high quality high definition scans using a D Archiver Digital scanner. Generally our work supports heritage and commercial projects including digitising collections from other archives and organisations who wish to outsource this specialist work. We can digitise a range of formats including 8mm, Super 8, Standard 8, 9.5mm, 16mm and 35mm film.
