|All DVDs will have
skip able sections, known as chapters and there would be a menu.
If you provide a USB drive (32GB to 500GB), the files can be put
on the USB drive as well or instead of on DVDs.
With MPG2 files, you
will be able to copy them to any computer, storage device or TV media
(DVD, Blu-ray etc) any time in the future. Please keep in mind,
some day DVDs will be fazed out too, it might be worth considering to go
for MPG2 files only?
It is always a good idea to give a copy of all your video files to
another family member or friend, so if anything ever happened to your
storage device, you would still be able to get your video files back in
Scratching your DVD will ensure your DVD will fail to work sooner or
later, so caring for your disc is seriously important.
Plus postage costs
(both ways), if
Other cassette types will need to be
quoted on with the above as reference, we will be assuming that you don't really
know how many actual hours are on your cassettes.
|Your cassette/s are
converted to MPG files, which can be played through your computer or
modern smart TV. A USB Drive is required
or we will add the cost of one, or the FILES can be put of DATA DISCs
DVD-R or DVD-DL... (These Data Discs are not playable as
normal Movie DVDs, they are only for file storage).
PROFESSIONALLY WORKED DVD/BLU-RAY
professionally worked cinematic
movie DVD or Blu-ray can be produced but would be
at extra cost as it takes much more time and effort. Burning to Blu-ray does not improve the quality of the converted material
any more than seen on the device it was recorded on, (unless the
vision was actually recorded in HD format) we do not recommend it,
to see what could be done?
PROCESS OF CONVERSION
When converting to DVD,
we create a graphically printed DVD cover, additional
copies are extra dollars, there is no region protection on our
discs, so it can be duplicated/copied anywhere, anytime (as
long as not scratched). It's always a
good idea to have more than one copy, if you don't want to
lose it, the second copy
should be kept away from your home, in case of a house fire or even a
robbery, also just in case the original gets scratched (which is more
so the case these days).
SQUIGGLY LINES & QUALITY
Some people buy cameras overseas not knowing that the camera is
a different format to what is used in Australia, we use 25p (25
frames) where USA use a standard 30p, if not recorded correctly
you can end up with squiggles, ripples etc as there is movement
in the vision. We can not guarantee your conversion will not
have this effect. As we convert how it comes.
To help us with this, please also provide the camera the vision
was recorded on as well if it still works, we might offer to buy
it from you.
keeping your tapes in storage, doesn't guarantee they can be
converted later (they must be kept in a dry non-damp place),
we're experiencing loss of quality and other distortions coming
through on some older tapes.
POSTING your cassettes to us!
We can help
anyone in Australia who can post their material to us, if
you want you items

to see what could be done?
COMPACT HDD CAMCORDER
When you bought your
camcorder from the store, you would have been told it creates files and
provides software for burning to DVD, but after you filled the camera up
it suddenly stopped being usable until you finally removed the files out
of the camera.
Perhaps by this time you lost the software provided to convert to DVD/Blu-ray
etc, little did you know, but the camera's vision may only be converted
by that software etc.
Often the user is not informed that the Australian format is PAL not
NTSC, the difference can during conversion cause jitter or flicker etc,
you'll see this when something you filmed is moving in the camera, these
cameras are only good until you fill it up, yes you can watch the vision
on your TV via cable or WIFI, but when the camera dies what option do
All that bad stuff being said, if you come across these issues, please
to see what could be done?
We use quality conversion hardware, editing is done by professional
people with professional editing software, using quality media.
We can burn your video to MP4 or Blu-ray, but this will not improve the
quality of your video files, as they will always be low-resolution.
SORRY WE DO NOT
CONVERT REELS (neither 8mm or 16mm etc).
We will not use any vision converted for anything other than to
convert it for you, all material is deleted from our archives within 14 days after clients
receive their files, we do not keep copies of anything
converted in any format.

unless you have written permission to do so (it is
against the law to do so). The content of cassettes/tapes
supplied must not be copyright to anyone else other than

that you are responsible for it 100%, we reserve the right to return all without charge
