BHP is the world’s most experienced manufacturer of precision motion picture film laboratory equipment. As the successor to the Professional Equipment Division of Bell & Howell Company by a group of long time Professional Division employees, BHP is proud to continue the tradition of engineering and manufacturing excellence which began in 1907.
Over the years, engineering innovation, improvements in manufacturing techniques, and adherence to strict quality standards have led to a series of printers and accessories that have continually been the first choice of motion picture laboratories throughout the world.
Today Media Migration Technology supports BHP machines in the field, refurbishes used machines for resale and can manufacture new units. We have an extensive inventory of parts and drawings.
Printer with Enhanced Performance, Cost-Saving Features and Greater Production Efficiencies
Designed to maximize print quality, negative safety and production efficiency, BHP Printers can benefit motion picture laboratories of all sizes.
These film elements are often severely shrunken, and BHP offers a series of solutions to printing film with undersize sprocket spacing.
The new BHP shrunken 35mm film picture and sound printing heads can deal with shrinkage as much as 2.5%. Special 16mm picture and sound heads can print film shrunken as much as 1.25%
These options may be easily and quickly installed on your present BHP printer, and are a low cost alternative to purchasing expensive and slow step printing machines.
BHP reduced pitch wet printing heads have been installed at many labs including Cinetech, Film Technology Company, United States Library of Congress and Technicolor/CFI.
