Foreign Conversions

Although video cassette housings and DVD media are essentially standard world-wide, the actual signal that is recorded varies from country to country. Because of these multiple standards in video recording, videotapes and DVDs from certain foreign countries must be converted to the American television standard format (NTSC) in order to be played back on American VCRs or DVD players. Likewise, videotapes or DVDs recorded in the American format (NTSC) must be converted to another format (usually PAL) in order to be viewed in another country.  

Conversions can be made onto VHS, DVD, miniDV, BetaSP, DVCAM and many other tape formats. Normally your order will be completed within 24-48 hours of receiving your tape.
