What videotape formats do you convert to digital?

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

What digital video format do you convert to?

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.

How many tapes will fit on a USB flash drive?

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.

What do you do if a tape is blank or only has TV shows or movies on them?

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.

Does the conversion include color correction?

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.

How will my video transfers be digitally organized?

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.

Can you edit my video transfers to remove parts I don’t want?

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.
