Videotapes lose part of their picture and
sound signal each time you play them. Even if you don't
play them that often, the signal is steadily deteriorating
and lasts only 10-15 years. Too often we have seen someone
bring in a precious videotape that no longer has sound or
has snow running through the middle of the screen and there is no way to recover
the picture or audio once it is gone!
By having your videos converted now, before they
deteriorate, you will keep your favorite memories alive in
the highest quality possible. Unlike videotapes, the
digital recordings on DVD are designed to last well over
A DVD will hold up to 2 hours of video footage without
losing quality. Additional DVD copies are economical. We

Additional DVD copies are $10 each.
Custom DVD Authoring:
Choose specific chapter locations and titles! Pricing for
custom DVD authoring is charged at the studio edit rate
($200/hour) so your cost will vary depending on the
quality of a DVD cannot exceed that of the video source
from which it is mastered, so if the master tape is on
VHS, the quality of the DVD will not exceed that of VHS.
Also, certain DVD players may display
incompatibility with certain DVDs.
