What video tapes can you convert?
We can convert the following tape types to DVD or USB: VHS, VHS-C, MiniDV and Hi8 / Digital8.
Can you do custom edits?
Can you convert to different computer formats?
Yes - we can convert to a number of digital formats - including .MP4, .AVI, .MOV and other common / web formats.
Can you convert store-bought tapes?
According to current copyright laws (at the time of writing), you are allowed to make one copy for your own backup purposes – if you own the original video tape.
However, should the tape employ its own copy protection system (e.g. Macrovision), then our system is generally physically be unable to make a copy. We can certainly try it for you, though!
Do I get my tapes back afterwards?
Absolutely - although from time to time, we have had clients ask us not to return them since they had no way of playing them anyway. It’s up to you!
How does payment work?
Once we receive your tapes, we’ll start converting them and email you an invoice. Once the conversion is finished, and the invoice is paid, your items will be dispatched.
Can you repair a broken tape?
Most of the time, yes. If the physical magnetic tape has ‘snapped’. then we will often attempt a repair at a small additional fee. However, it depends on the amount of damage and where the break is - so each tape is assessed on a case-by-case basis.
Can you convert from reels?
Unfortunately not, just tapes in a plastic tape caddy - like your regular VCR video tapes (and similar - including camcorder tapes).
