Let us transfer your video tapes to DVD or computer files, and preserve your precious memories for all to enjoy again.
Video to DVD
The DVD will be ready to watch on your DVD or Blu Ray player or computer, and features a menu with selection or 'play' buttons, one for each video. The user is easily able to navigate through the menu in order to select their choice of videos to view. The DVD play buttons incorporate a thumbnail image from the video, and can also include a label or 'title'.
Video to Blu Ray Disc
We can transfer video tape to Blu Ray video discs.
A great advantage of archiving your video tape on Blu Ray is it's potential storage capacity. Each Blu Ray disc can accomodate up to approximately 12 hours of standard definition video.
When viewing the Blu Ray disc on a HD television, the standard definition recordings will be upscaled by the Blu Ray player to high definition.
As with DVD, the Blu Ray disc features a navigation menu.
Video to Computer Files
The files will be ready to view on your Windows or MAC computer. Each video tape will be saved as an individual file, which, unlike a DVD, can then be imported into your computers editing software. This will enable you to create your own DVD or Blu Ray disc presentation.
We can convert video tape to computer files including AVI, Quicktime (MOV) and MP4.
The digital video files require approximately 13 Gigabyte of storage space per hour, and we usually need to supply the video on an external hard disc drive. The drive is easy to use, by simply plugging it into a USB socket on your computer. We can supply the hard drive, or you can provide your own.
Time Based Video Restoration
When we convert your older analogue video tapes, the video signal is passed through a time base corrector. This smoothes and strengthens the video signal to produce a higher quality and more stable image.
Digital video tapes are transferred via firewire, ensuring no loss in quality.
The video tapes are played on proffesional video decks, and transferred with the latest professional software and hardware.
The conversion process is continuously manned and monitored to ensure that any adjustments such as the tracking can be made if required.
Whether you choose DVD, Blu Ray or files, the same low price applies. We charge per recorded hour rather than per tape. Some tapes after all, may only contain a few minutes of recording.
The running times of each recording are added together to determine the total running time of your order.
Price to transfer video to DVD or computer files costs only £10.00 per recorded hour.
Video Tape Repairs
We can usually carry out a temporary repair to damaged or broken video cassettes in order to transfer them.
Cassette stuck in video camera? Let us have the camera, together with all connection leads and instruction manual if you have them. We can usually retrieve the video cassette for the purpose of conversion.
Subject: Old video tapes to DVD
Thanks for doing a great job converting my old tapes to DVD, so glad it's done now and we can enjoy watching them without worrying about tapes getting chewed up and losing them forever. I would recommend getting them done professionally as the quality is very good and it's one of those things most of us never get round to doing ourselves!
Thanks again. Kind regards, Daryl
Subject: video tapes to hard drive
Many thanks for the Hard Drive & DVDs received last week. I’m pleased with the quality, the timebase correction has made a significant difference.
We are proud to offer you our premium video transfer service.
With over 35 years experience of video tape restoration and conversion, our family business was born out of a passion for vintage film and tape formats, and the equipment that was used to create and play them.
We have been copying VHS and Betamax video tapes since these formats first became available in the 70's, and we were one of the first companies to offer a video to dvd transfer service as soon as recordable dvd's became available. We believe you are unlikely to find anyone who has restored and converted more video tapes than us!
Technology has moved on in leaps and bounds over the years, and we have always invested in the latest technology to ensure our customers receive the highest quality video transfer possible.
Handling and working with delicate video media demands experience, patience and care. All our video restoration and conversion procedures are carefully performed by us 'in house' at our studios.
With our commitment for providing a professional quality service, you can be assured that your priceless video tapes are in safe hands. We know you will be delighted by the results.
