Converting your old video tapes and movie film to DVD is the first step to digitization. This will make your footage more accessible and easy to view at anytime. In addition to having your footage on DVD, you also have the hard drive transfer option. If you select the hard drive option, we will load all of your video files to an external hard drive. You may include an external hard drive (with necessary cables) along with your materials when sending your order to us. If you don't have an external hard drive, you may purchase one from us for $119.95. Our 500 GB hard drives can be formatted for MAC or PC computers.

Using your video footage on computer

Our DVDs are created for use in any modern DVD player, including DVD drives of a computer. Although you can play these DVDs in your computer, that doesn't mean you will have the ability to edit the video footage. To make this process easier for you, we offer the hard drive transfer option. We will load the video files from your footage to external hard drive. You can plug the external hard drive to your computer and save all of the video files for use. The video format depends on your material type, and the transfer level you choose. A 2-hour video tape transferred at the premium level will require about 5 GB of space on your hard drive. A 2-hour video tape transferred at the expert level will require about 16 GB of space on your hard drive.
