How It Works

What you need to do:

  1. You describe to me what you are looking to have done.
  2. You arrange your media in the order in which you want it transferred (chronological is most common).
  3. Think about a title for your project because your discs will be printed with this.
  4. Arrange a time to drop off your media at my studio.

Contact Us

What happens in our studio:

  • Video cassettes are transferred in real-time with studio-grade hardware.
  • Tapes with shorter running times are combined to fill the DVD up to the 2 hour maximum.
  • If we discover that longer playing run times were used when recording we will contact you to discuss how you prefer to move forward with your project.
  • All work is performed on-site, locally.
  • All transferred data is one-of-a-kind. We do not keep copies of your project.

What we’ll deliver to you:

Delivery on CD:
Your discs will be printed with the title of your choice (inkjet printed disc face) and put in a protective hard case.
Delivery on hard drive:
If you provided external hard drive or solid-state media (SD, USB, CF), project can be returned to you as edit-ready Mac (.mov) or Windows (.avi) files.
