Videotape to DVD Transfer
We convert all videotape formats to DVD. If you're not sure what kind of tape you have, just bring it to the store and we'll identify it. Here's a few of the most popular:
Betamax, Betacam, Betacam SP, Umatic
Video 8, Hi8, Digital 8
We do not repair cameras or VCRs. But if you have a tape stuck in one, we will get it out. Don't expect to get the camera back in working order. Learn more about repairing tapes

Thermal Print on DVD
All DVD transfers include a master copy (in Red case), a copy to watch (in Black case), thermal print on the DVDs, and a cover that shows the running time and photos of the beginning of each 5 minute chapter point.
All work is performed on site and original materials will be returned.
Deluxe Transfer Package
Includes the transfer of up to two hours of video to a master DVD and a backup copy on DVD (two DVDs total).
Do you have HDV or other HD formats? We can transfer them to Blu-ray.
A note about recording speeds:
Many tape formats have different recording speeds that decrease the quality of the recording and increase the recording time. For example the VHS format has an EP setting that triples the recording time. If used, this makes a 2 hour VHS tape last for 6 hours and a 30 minute VHS-C tape last for 90 minutes.

What is Time Base Correction (TBC)?
We use Time Base Correction (TBC) for all analog tape transfers. TBC works by sending the video signal into digital memory and then outputting it in perfect time over a regenerated sync pulse. As each frame of video passes through the TBC equipment, the color, hue, and tint are also adjusted to boost colors in “washed out” video or dull down the reds that often “bleed” in older footage.
