Why Use Family Videos on for your tape transfers?

We occasionally see tape transfers done by other companies and have observed issues that would never pass our quality control standards such as (1) large gaps within and/or at the end of the video, (2) faded video, (3) color balance problems, and (4) long segments with accidentally recorded video. We initially perform digital transfer of videos to a hard drive, and then review and resolve such problems using professional video editing software prior to transfer to DVD. The majority of our competitors directly transfer your tape to a DVD without resolving such problems.

When choosing a transfer company, we highly recommend that you ask whether the company does any editing/enhancing to resolve problems in your video prior to transfer to DVD.


Standard vs. Premium Transfers

Both our Standard and Premium Transfers include a comprehensive package of features that is unmatched by our competition.  For a side-by-side comparison between the features included with transfers vs. our competitors, see the transfers vhs to dvd page. Please see the convert Vhs to DVD page for a more detail description of our transfer process.


Standard Transfers

Include correction for video color fading that commonly occurs in aging tapes.  We believe that this is the most important feature included in our Standard Transfers that is not offered by the majority of our competitors. See below for a complete list of features.


Premium Transfers

Include 15 min. of editing for advanced color correction, and removal of gaps within the video – features not offered by the majority of our competitors. Advanced color correction can restore your videos back to their original quality and possibly even make them better than the original! See below for a complete list of features.
