Video tapes can degrade in quality over time, and video players are becoming increasingly difficult to buy. We can convert your old video tapes to DVD, USB memory stick or supply a digital video format download, compatible with a wide range of devices including iPhone, iPad, Apple TV, Mac, PC, Android and many modern Smart TVs, so you can keep and enjoy your precious memories for years to come!

When you send us your video tapes, we capture them to our Mac Pro workstation using professional video playback equipment. We then apply basic tweaks such as colour correction, trimming, audio adjustments etc, and we also remove any fuzzy edges, often associated with video tapes.

Videos are burnt to professional grade DVD discs and inkjet printed with the tapes contents. Discs are normally supplied in a clam-shell style case, but full size DVD cases with custom inlay sleeves can also be ordered. If you choose to have your video supplied on a USB memory stick, we opt for Sandisk as they are known for they speed and reliability.

All work is undertaken in house by our professional team, and tapes are never sent away to a third party.

We can transfer from the following formats:

  • VHS (PAL/NTSC) / S-VHS (PAL)
  • VHS-C (PAL/NTSC) / S-VHS-C (PAL)
  • MiniDV (including HDV)
  • Mini DVD
  • Hi-8 (PAL)
  • Digital-8 (PAL)
  • 8mm video cassette tapes (PAL)
  • Video from a range of memory cards or emailed to us directly

Regrettably, we are unable to convert any type of cine film or Betamax tapes.

What makes us different from the rest?

  • We don’t charge per hour or half hour of footage to be transferred, we have just one price for the whole tape.
  • If we have to split the video over multiple DVDs, we don’t charge for this.
  • We don’t charge return postage on top of what we quote for the transfer. This is already included in the price.
  • We don’t charge a different price depending on the type of tape you have, it’s the same price no matter what type of tape you send us.
  • We don’t charge extra for returning your tapes.

Just because our prices are lower, doesn’t mean you are getting any less of a service. In fact, we pride ourselves in ensuring every video transfer is the best it can be!

  • All transfers are done ‘by hand’ – we set the transfer going manually and check it’s going smoothly throughout.
  • We reduce any wobbling of the picture that can occur with video tapes, and make the edges of the image sharp.
  • If your recording is in mono (audio only coming out of one speaker) we’ll make it stereo.
  • We automatically insert chapter points throughout the DVD.
  • We chop out any blank video from the start, end and middle of the tape.
  • After we burn the video to DVD, we print a title directly onto the disc itself, so you know what is on it.
