Welcome to the Atlantic Media Preservation (AMP) Lab! Our talented team of scan operators/artists are ready to scan your 8mm and 16mm film on our state of the art 5k Lasergraphics scanner.

The AMP Lab provides both filmmakers and the general public with access to filmmaking equipment and facilities at accessible rates. Scanning film to digital video professionally is a complex procedure with a potentially dizzying array of choices. We’re here to help make that easier to get you the results you need for your intended purpose, whether that be creating your original film on celluloid, archiving historical works or sharing your home movies with your family on the internet. At AFCOOP and the AMP Lab, we’re artists and filmmakers ourselves, and we care about your work.
