Developed by JVC in 1976, VHS became the standard in the home video industry. Typical tape lengths were 120, 180 and 240 minutes with the 180 being the most common. These times can double if recorded in LongPlay. There is also VHS-C (which is a smaller cassette which has to go into an adapter to play back on a standard machine), S-VHS and S-VHS-C which are higher quality versions of VHS.
1 x VHS tape (upto 2 hours) onto 1 DVD £15.00
2 x VHS tapes (upto 2 hours total) on to 1 DVD £20.00
1 x VHS tape onto 2 DVDs £20.00 (for tapes greater than 2 hours eg E180)
For VHS tapes longer than 2 hours we copy them to 2 DVDs. Two hours on a DVD is the optimum quality. It is possible to transfer 3 or 4 hours onto a single DVD but we have to reduce the quality to do so.
We can also convert tapes recorded in the American format NTSC
If you have a number of short tapes and you dont mind having them all on one DVD we only charge £5.00 per extra tape added to the DVD. For example if you have 3 tapes of, say, 30 minutes each the cost to transfer(basic service) to DVD would be £25.00 ie £15.00 +£5.00 + £5.00.
Each DVD is printed with a title of your choice or we use what is on your tape label. Each DVD comes in a standard DVD case. Customised case inserts are available. Cost depends on what you require.
Have extra copies of your transfer. Prices are from £5.00 each per disc for up to 5 copies. Discounts available for more than 5.
