I have 2000 feet of 9.5mm film on five reels, taken in the 1940s and 1950s. Movies taken by a deceased friend, of family and wild places in Tasmania, parts of which will end up on Blu-ray. I want it scanned at 2K on a high-end machine such as a Lasergraphics ScanStation, MWA FlashTransfer Choice, or similar.

As far as I am aware:
• no company in Australia has such machines.

• Images4life.uk has a FlashTransfer, but is unable to output to ProRes 4444. It can output to ProRes 422 HQ, so I'll very likely go with them.

•videopro.dk have the ScanStation and a lower resolution model of the FlashTransfer, but from my experience there are language – and other – difficulties.

I have been unable to track down anyone else who can do this work. Is anyone aware of a company anywhere in the world that can scan 9.5mm film using a high-end machine? By high-end I mean something other than a RetroScan.

the people at ochoypico in Madrid offer frame-by-frame HD scan for 9.5mm. I've never worked with them, but I'm planning to take them a few 9.5mm films that I've shot over the last years and some old Super 8 from my family. I can report about my experience once I get them back.
I don't know if they speak english, but they probably do since their website has an english version and looks quite professional.
Hope this helps.
