VHS/VHS-C Transfer & Conversion Process
We can transfer your precious VHS/VHS-C, S-VHS & Betamax video tapes to a digital format, we will be able to convert your original footage to maintain the quality, protect your media from further degradation and permits ease of use for viewing & replication purposes.
We will happily accept any number of tapes at any one time, and (unlike other companies) the price we charge is PER TAPE, regardless of how long or how much footage you have on each tape.
Our transfer process will enable you to preserve and enjoy the footage transferred from your video tapes once more without the hassle of trying to lay your hands on old VCR’s or connecting up old camcorders to your TV’s etc.
Video Standards Conversion:
We can convert most foreign videos and DVDs (American-NTSC/French-Secam) to UK-PAL DVD for viewing on your home DVD player and vice versa. Any DVD copies made can be region-encoded for viewing abroad (converting the European standard PAL-format to the NTSC-format used in the Americas) which would be converted accordingly at the final stage. Please note (additional regional copies may incur a small extra charge for example if both a PAL copy and NTSC copy is required this charge would apply).
Formats we can convert:
- VHS (full size)
- S-VHS (full size)
- VHS-C and S-VHS-C (these tapes require an adapter which we will provide for the purpose of the transfer).
- Memory cards
- Hard drives*
*Prices available on application
The transfer choices we offer are numerous; Our normal transfer service is for a direct transfer from tape to DVD. However, we can produce digital files on a USB flash storage drive. Digital files carry an additional media cost on top of our normal transfer charge, prices start from just £9.00.
If you require us to supply a DVD of any digital files transferred then each DVD would be charged @ £9.00 per DVD.
Each item of media will be transferred onto a separate hi-grade DVD with an appropriate printed label (maximum 6 words). Or you can opt to have your media transferred directly to a USB flash storage drive from £9.00.
If your media tapes are relatively short we may be able to combine them on to just one DVD. We can certainly look to combine more material on to one DVD providing we use dual layer discs instead of our regular single layer discs. Dual Layer discs carry a surcharge of £1.00 on top of our normal media transfer prices. Please see our full prices or enquire with us for further help and advice.
We can add music and/or titles, include a full menu screen, chapter points which will allow you skip to the various movie clips almost immediately. This service does incur some editing costs (please see our full prices).
We can help you to make sense of those countless hours of video by editing your footage into a neat and concise movie. This transfer method would normally involve a two step process.
Firstly we digitally capture all your footage and then provide you with a preview copy to watch on DVD or as a private video link via our Moving Memories Productions Vimeo channel. Both versions will have time-code displayed and running in the top left corner. Secondly, we require you to make notes of the IN and Out points and list all your clips in order of preference for your final video, these reference notes can be matched up by the relevant time-codes, which we use to edit your final video.
If your editing is more simple, then we may be able to edit with some basic written notes and instructions, providing the footage we are looking for is very concise.
We can normally advise on the editing costs once we have fully understood your requirements.
“We take great care of your media and aim to give your Video memories that new lease of life!”
