    We are an owner operated enterprise since 2005, always mastering our craft and eager to tackle new challenges. We were honored to be chosen as the Best Photo Scanning Service by Wirecutter in 2016. Our team is attentive to details and responsive to requests with a focus on quality.

We convert VHS, VHS-C, Video8, Hi8, Digital8, MiniDV, HDV, DVCAM, Betamax, Betacam, Betacam SP, DigiBetacam, Betacam SX, and PAL VHS tape formats.

Our standard digital file output for videotape transfers is H.264 MP4 format which is widely compatible with both Windows and Mac OS.  We use a high quality low compression bit rate setting.

The average file size for videotape transfers is about 2 GB per hour of video runtime, so the total data will depend largely on the length of content on tapes.  We offer USB flash drives in sizes ranging from 16-128 GB or a 1 TB HDD for larger volume projects.

We have a $5 minimum per tape charge if a tape is discovered to be blank or contains only TV/movie recordings which we will exclude. We will not transfer any TV recordings or movies unless there are specific recordings you note that you want digitized. For example, a nightly news story with a friend or relative highlighted.

The conversion does not include color correction but is also not normally an issue with videotapes, and if so is on a scene by scene basis making universal corrections unpredictable and undesirable.  Our conversions do include processes to ensure a more stable transfer without issues like flagging.  We review all footage after the initial capture to trim out blank or static sections or non-home movie related content like TV shows and movies.

We will custom title each digital file with subject info on the original tape, or if not applicable assign a number to use in the digital file to correlate with the original source.  Each tape will be converted to a single digital video file.

We can custom edit your video by special request with instructions you provide.  Otherwise the video files can be edited using video editing software at any later time.

We are a dedicated team of 9 employees who take great pride in our custom work, and the reviews by our past clients speak for themselves.  We have been in business since 2005, and our focus on accuracy and quality results has always been our top priority.  We are proud of our custom quality methods and personalized customer service.
