We are able to process the following videotape formats: VHS, S-VHS, Betamax, VHS-C, S-VHS-C, Hi-8, Digital8, Video8, DV, DVCAM, MiniDV, DVC; videotapes can be in NTSC or PAL formats.

Each DVD can hold up to 2 hours of footage from a maximum of 2 videotapes. There is no footage limit on USB. In most cases, your footage will be transferred to a single USB, but if it exceeds our USB storage capacity, you will receive additional USBs at no additional charge.

Your Video Transfer includes 2 archival-quality gold DVDs and/or a USB, basic repairs (tape case, ribbon, mold cleaning) if needed, and a Digital Copy of your memories, accessible in your MemoryCloud account (available for 90 days after your order is processed).

Your 2 archival-quality gold DVDs will contain the following:
  • Continuous play of the footage from your videotape(s)
  • DVD chapters created at natural scene breaks
  • DVD case with thumbnail images of each chapter
  • Original audio from your videotape
  • Title and theme (if selected)
  • 3 music video trailers (1 minute each)

PAL tapes (the most common format in Europe and Asia) in VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, and Video8 videotapes can be transferred. There is no additional charge to transfer videotapes in a PAL format.

We are able to replace broken videotape cases, repair basic ribbon damage, and clean slight mold on a videotape with all transfers. If your videotape has extensive ribbon damage and excessive mold, we will send it back unprocessed.

Your original videotapes and cases will be returned with your completed order.
