Why should I convert my Pathé films to DVD or digital?

Pathé cine films are rare. They are timeless pieces of media history that deserve to be remembered – not to mention the moments that have themselves been captured on film. But despite every precaution taken to preserve cine film reels, they are vulnerable to degradation.

The best way to convert 9.5mm cine film to DVD or digital format

Converting cine films in a domestic setting is nigh on impossible. The necessary telecine equipment and chemical processes requires plenty of money, space (both for the equipment and for ventilation) and expertise. Without the right knowledge, it is very easy to cause unsalvageable damage. We would recommend employing experts to digitise your cine films for you.

Why wait? EachMoment’s digitisation service is the safest in the UK

Is there an important milestone approaching for you or your family? An anniversary, birthday, Mother’s day or father’s day? Or maybe you just want to gather the family to laugh and cry at old times and old faces.

Celebrate your loved ones with a Memory Box and preserve those precious moments forever. 

A Brief History of Pathé Film

Pathé handheld 9.5mm film camera

Pathé 9.5mm film, named after the French production company, is an amateur film format launched in the 1920s. Although a simple compatible camera was later released, 9.5mm cine film was initially created as a cheap method for reproducing commercially made films to be watched at home.

To this extent, early Pathé formats pioneered home cinema entertainment. Pathéscope – the distributors of Pathé film, projectors and cameras – produced a large number of the most significant films of the early twentieth century including Mickey Mouse, Betty Boop, Laurel and Hardy, Charlie Chaplin and Metropolis, which were all available on 9.5 mm film.

Of course, Pathé film is far removed from its videocassette and digital format successors, but there is no question of its influence on modern cinema and our modern ability to replicate film.

Today, British Pathé are global guardians for 9.5mm cine film footage. Their archive of news reels and culturally significant films is unrivalled. They are a resource to many major news outlets to this day. All their films are guarded closely to preserve their copyrights and the integrity of the footage to ensure they are preserved and respected.
