Video Transfer Services

Camcorder to DVD / Blu-Ray Transfer Service

Our camcorder tape transfer service is incredibly similar to our VHS transfer service so if you've read that page you'll have to excuse us if we repeat ourselves!

Basic Tape to DVD Service

This is our basic service with no added extras, just a high quality copy from everything at the start of the tape until the tape is finished or the recording is stopped as the footage has finished.

This is perfect for backing up tapes for the convenience of watching on DVD but aren't of any great importance.

Prices

Our pricing is very straight forward. We charge £10 per hour of footage we transfer. We think it's much fairer to charge for the amount of footage you have than on how long the tape is, after all, half the tape could be blank!

We do have a minimum charge of £20 for camcorder tape transfers as it takes a little while to get new orders setup, so that helps to cover the time it takes. So anything up to the first two hours of footage will be £20 and any further hours will be charged at £10 per hour.

Explanation of our prices

You may have been shopping around for tape transfer services and found our prices to be slightly higher than other companies, but let us explain why.

The processes that we use to transfer VHS and camcorder tapes are more involved than many of our competitors and produce a better product for the customer but it takes longer to create the transfer.

Enhanced Tape to DVD or Blu-Ray Service

This is our more advanced service which is perfect for cherished recordings from tape that are going to be watched time and again. We transfer the recording onto DVD or Blu-Ray disc via our computer systems, editing out the fuzzy part that are almost always noticeable at the start and end of recordings when one video runs into another.

Your DVD or Blu-Ray disc will start with a crisp shot and finish in exactly the same way.

Once we have transferred your recording onto our computers we can offer a range of services which we can add to each transfer to make them extra special.

Colour and Brightness Enhancement

If you VHS tape hasn't aged very well you may find it is rather dark, or has developed a colour cast.

It isn't just age that can cause these problems, videos filmed in dark conditions or under flourcesant lighting can also create dark videos or colours that don't look right. In many cases we can fix the problems, or at the very least reduce the severity of the effects!

We hope to have some video showing our video enhancements soon, please check back or call us for more details.

Chapter Points at regular intervals

For easy navigation through your DVD or Blu-Ray disc we can add chapter points – just like the films you buy. They will be inserted at five minute intervals (or at a time interval you request), making it easy to skip back and forth between different sections of the tape.

Please note these have to be ordered when you initially send the tape to us, we can't offer the service once we have transferred the tape.

Custom Designed Personalised Disc and Disc Box - Free and included on both standard and enhanced services

When we create the cover for the disc (we print directly onto the disc) and the box cover we can put any wording you like onto both the disc and box cover. It makes for a really personal touch, especially if the transfers are a present for a loved one.

Pricelist for the enhanced service for Blu-Ray - we can fit up to TEN hours of footage on one disc!

The price increases over DVD are due to two factors:

  • Blu-Ray media is very expensive to buy at the moment as it is new technology.
  • Because we can fit up to ten hours of footage onto one disc, it takes a long time to edit, enhance, prepare and encode the disc ready for playback.
