All formats (VHS, Video 8, Hi8, MiniDV, VHS-C Etc.) are the same around the world but the run times and recording signals on the tape are different. Pal is the system we use here in the U.K., most of Europe, and all commonwealth countries. Note that copyright material will require permission in writing from the copyright holder. Special rates apply for obsolete or broadcast formats. Your recordings will be given a re-fresh as we up-scale them. There might be a small loss in picture quality in the transfer process if the recordings are in long play or from the American NTSC system. Our Video to DVD transfer services in Darlington use Progressive Scan technology. Progressive scan shows both fields in one pass, so providing a smoother and more accurate picture. Progressive Scan requires special connections such as HDMI or Component Etc…A standard signal is defined as 480i (576i for PAL) or 480p (576p For PAL) if it’s de-interlaced progressive scan. We also use this process with a Flexible Recording Mode ie. if your Tape is one and a half hours long, most companies would use a fixed bit-rate of 5Mbps to a max record time of 2hrs. per DVD. This is just not good enough in our opinion. We use a flexible Bit-rate of between 1.7 – 10Mbps. This allows all the data capacity of the DVD to be used for your tape recording. It also allows up-to 3hrs worth of video to be placed on the DVD with better than SP results. Sound is always Dolby Digital. We are based in Darlington, County Durham and offer a collect and drop off service in Darlington, Hurworth, Yarm, Stockton, Middlesbrough, Richmond, Northallerton, Durham, Sunderland, Newcastle and all the villages in between call us for details and availability.

All you have to do is find the deal that best suits the number of tapes you have and then change the number next to the word ” Add: “. So if you have 5 tapes you would change the 0 to 1 next to the “5 x Video to DVD transfer Service (DEAL)” AND If you have more tapes than the 3 or 5 tapes deal you purchased then please add extra tapes using the “ADDITIONAL TAPES TO DVD TRANSFER SERVICE VOUCHERS HOLDERS ONLY” link this is only available to voucher holders using their coupon in the same transaction.
