Video & Camcorder Transfer to DVD & Digital

We have invested in the highest quality professional playback decks so you get the best quality tape conversion from your old home video or camcorder tapes at very competitive prices.

We can copy your tapes onto DVD or as digital video files, transferring from most domestic and professional formats.

It is true that tapes won’t last forever these older formats are degrading and showing signs of age such as mold growth and dropout as well as brittle, we recommend you transfer your family films from these ageing analogue formats to a modern digital format that is easy to copy and backup for future generations. Don’t lose these precious memories of wonderful family events.

We wind all tapes end to end to reset tape tension and tracking this also helps where tapes have only been partially rewound and have been incorrectly stored, playback tracking is manually set and digital time base correction is applied for optimum results.

Most formats are getting old now beyond 8 years and the playback decks are getting difficult to fix as spares are becoming obsolete, we recommend transfer to a digital format so that you can then store, copy, edit and make DVD’s or other file formats for playback on tablets or via the web such as YouTube or Vimeo.

VHS video to DVD and Digital

Video 8, Digital 8 and Hi 8 transfer to DVD

Mini DV and HDV video to DVD / Digital
