Standard Camcorder Transfer
We transfer your tape to a high quality digital format that can be edited professionally. Many of our competitors transfer your tape directly to DVD using a DVD recorder and also transfer bad sections on the tape to the DVD. We remove blank sections from the beginning and end of your tape. If you choose Premium Tape Transfers, we can also search for gaps within the video and perform color correction. We add an opening title, chapter markers (at ~10 min intervals) and provide a professionally authored DVD with up to 2 hrs of video. Each DVD will have an opening menu, scene selection menu(s), and a personalized cover. An opening menu with images captured from your video, and background music on all of your menus are available as a $8/DVD upgrade. If you would like to watch your video on your iPod/Smartphone/Apple TV or share your video with friends and family on YouTube or other social networking sites, we format your video into a MPEG-4 (H.264) file format. The cost for this service is $8/conversion.
Smartphone Videos and Photos to DVD & Digital Files
Our phones have become our primary camera for taking videos and photos of our family and friends. To avoid losing these memories, we can convert your smartphone videos to a DVD and/or a digital file, and your smartphone photos to a Photo Montage DVD and/or a digital file.
What if I Want to Perform my Own Video Editing?
We can provide a file with uncompressed video (QuickTime format) on a Blu-ray DVD ($20 for ~23GB of video files) or your external hard drive ($8.00/video)
Need to Preview Your VHS or VHS-c Tapes Prior to Transfer?
