Film Scanning

In this modern day and age when everything is digitized, there is a need to digitize films as well. After a period of time, Negative and Positive prints keep deteriorating due to which they start losing their original content. Scanning and Digitization is a process through which these prints can be transferred and stored digitally. We offer customized Film Scanning & Digitization services on the latest ARRISCAN featuring Wet Gate and LED Technology.

Unlike other studios which offer scanning and digitization services, Ultra is known for its team of highly professional artists who assure consistency for minute details through a systematic procedure, which is extremely crucial and highly recommended for a 4K output.
