Videotapes lose part
of their picture and sound signal each time
you play them. Even if you don't play them that often, the signal is
steadily deteriorating and lasts only 10-15 years. Too often we have
seen someone bring in a precious videotape that no longer has sound or
has snow running through the middle of the screen and there is no way to recover the picture or
audio once it is gone!
By having your videos
converted now, before they deteriorate, you will keep your favorite
memories alive in the highest quality possible. Unlike videotapes, the
digital recordings on DVD are designed to
well over 100 years!
A DVD will hold up to 2 hours of video footage without
losing quality. Additional
DVD copies are economical. We offer fast processing - usually 1 or 2
for a DVD archive transfer.
Economical DVD Archive:
By this method, your entire videotape is transferred to DVD as is.
There are no custom titles pages or custom chapter points edited onto
the DVD. However, chapter stops are automatically included about every
3-5 minutes for your convenience.

to be Converted
Since DVDs can get scratched and otherwise damaged, causing them to be
unviewable, we recommend that you have at least one copy of your
transfer made as a back-up. Additional DVD copies are $10 each.
Custom DVD Authoring:
Choose specific chapter locations and titles! Pricing for
custom DVD authoring is charged at the studio edit rate ($200/hour) so
your cost will vary depending on the services requested.
The quality of a DVD cannot exceed that of the video source from which
it is mastered, so if the master tape is on VHS, the quality of the DVD
will not exceed that of VHS. Also, certain DVD players
may display incompatibility with certain DVDs.
