Via-Vision Video

We have been a recommended source for preservation of vintage films throughout Maine and the United States since 1999.

We take pride in restoring, transferring and preserving family memories to be enjoy and shared once again. Films are often left behind and sit in a closet box waiting to be restored because they are easily forgotten or folks no longer have the equipment. Deliver the film reels to our studio and you will discover an easy method of resurrecting your forgotten family memories.

Not sure what you have because the films are unmarked? No fear! We'll provide you with a proof DVD and upon your review we'll make the appropriate changes and place the films in the correct order. It's that simple!

Have more questions? Feel free to review our information provide on this website and once your ready we'll be glad to answer any additional questions. We love what we do and we look forward to serving you because at Via-Vision Video we make Treasured Moments Last!

Film Transfer

some important info


After transferring your films we will review and eliminate any dark and unnoticeable video. Blurry or poorly composed film is always kept.

Light & dark

We will also attempt to brighten or darken scenes which are under or overexposed.

Color correction

We color correct areas which are over or under saturated with color. Different reasons can cause a film to look red or bluish in color including film type, developing chemicals or simply the age of the film. We attempt to balance and the colors to appear more uniform.

Speed control

Occasionally film cameras were not set properly and recorded at an incorrect speed causing films to appear too fast as they ran through the projector. We change the film speed to a normal setting.


Film credits or titles are always nice to include before each film reel to describe the years and events. Titles are $2 each slide.

Film cleaning

We use a lubricant to clean and protect your films. Cleans dust particles, seals scratches and prevents further damage. Preserves your films by allowing the film to become flexible and not brittle. Allow your films to look their best before being transferred. .10 cents per foot of film.

Film repair

Sometimes films need a little care because of a damaged splice or defect. - $2
