SimplyDV – for a very personal touch

£18.00 (£15.00 + VAT) ANY HOME VIDEO TAPE to DVD

Our standard price for VHS, S-VHS, VHS-C and other home video format transfers direct to a regular DVD Video disc (for set-top players and computers). Any tape up to 180 mins duration is £18.00 per tape.

Note that for durations exceeding 180 mins we have to split them to a second DVD disc at an additional cost of £6.00 (£5.00 + VAT) per hour of extended playback.

Need digitised files for video editing instead? Prices start at £18.00 incl VAT.

We can digitise your recordings into a computer (using a separate process to the direct-to-DVD transfer service) and export clip files as either Apple Quicktime MOV (Uncompressed or Compressed) (for Apple Mac), Quicktime DV-MOV, Microsoft DV-AVI, etc, using a wide variety of codecs (including Apple ProRes422 for editing in Final Cut Pro, Premiere Pro, Avid Media Composer, (etc). We’re equipped to capture analogue video sources as 8-bit or 10-bit Uncompressed YUV or RGB Quicktime MOV files, 10-bit AVI or even sequenced DPX if you need them for editing. Captures are made on Apple Mac systems and can be written to your Thunderbolt, FireWire 800 or USB 2.0 drive as required. We can even provide upscaled SD to 720p, 1080i or 1080p files, too.

Cost: Prices per hour of tape digitised (minimum one hour) can be found here. Cost of additional storage media (Eg: HDD, Memory Card) subject to quotation. We can, if you require it, produce lower resolution preview files as MPEG-4 which we’ll upload to your dropbox or FTP server.

Whether you want a simple one-off video to DVD transfer or a large corporate video collection transferred and archived digitally, we can do it.
