VHS/VHS-C Transfer & Conversion Process
We transfer VHS/VHS-C, S-VHS & Betamax video tapes directly to DVD or to a digital file format. Our conversion process enables us to convert your original recorded footage to help maintain its quality, and protect your media from any further degradation. This will provide some great benefits of viewing and easily sharing your precious memories with family and friends now and in the future.
All our transfer prices are regardless of tape length and are based on a direct transfer to individual Hi-Grade DVD’s.
Each DVD would be returned in premium DVD cases, but If you prefer to have your DVD transfers supplied in thin plastic sleeves then this can be arranged by notifying us at the time your media is dropped in. However, we strongly recommend our premium DVD cases as this will better protect your transferred media in the long term.
Video Standards Conversion – We can convert most foreign video formats including: American-NTSC, French-SECAM, PAL to UK PAL for viewing on your DVD player and vice versa.
Popular VHS formats we convert:
Full size VHS, S-VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS-C and Betamax tapes.
Multiple Tape Transfers – If you would like us to combine multiple tapes on to DVD then this is possible. In addition to our normal transfer cost there will be a small editing charge for this work, plus there may be a need to use Dual Layer discs instead of using our standard single layer discs to increase the recording capacity. Dual Layer discs do carry a small surcharge on top of our normal media transfer prices.
Printed DVD Disc Titles – We would usually print your own video title on each DVD disc, but we will need to know these details when your media is delivered to us (maximum six words). Please write clearly and securely attach a label to each tape with your preferred title and we will print this information on to the relevant disc. Alternatively, you can complete our online enquiry/order form and enter the necessary information for each item of media being transferred.
DVD Spine Titling – Additionally, we offer an optional service to print the same DVD title onto the spine of the DVD sleeve. This will significantly help in identifying multiple DVD’s easily when being stacked on a shelf or rack.
DVD Cases – Our premium DVD cases are presented with our own pre printed, branded Moving Memories Productions DVD sleeves. If you would prefer us to design and create a personalised front DVD sleeve then this service is available as well as a DVD disc design.

Editing Services – This can include adding music and/or titles to your videos. Creating a full DVD menu screen with chapter points allowing you skip to the various video clips almost immediately.
USB/Hard Drive Storage – We can also convert your video tapes to a digital file and provide this on a USB stick or Hard Drive which we will supply at cost.
Timescale – Our turnaround time is normally 7-10 days, but in some cases we can complete your work much sooner depending on our overall workload at the time. If your transfer work is extremely urgent then there may be a surcharge for turning work around in less than 24-48hrs.
Delivery/Collection – Your media can be dropped in or collected free of charge from our office at The Colchester Centre. However, if you need us to personally collect or deliver your media then we can offer this service within the Colchester and immediate areas for a minimum cost of £10.00 (single journey). If you would like your items to be returned by post, then please consider a minimum charge of £8.00 for parcels up to 2kg and your items will be returned via a secure signed for delivery service. If you would like to post your media to us then we would recommend that you securely send your media via recorded delivery.
