We can transfer any Betacam format – in PAL and NTSC too

Whether you’re looking for a straightforward copy of Betacam, Betacam-SP, Betacam-SX, Digital Betacam (DigiBeta), MPEG IMX or standard original Betacam oxide tape to DVD or to an editable file format such as 10-bit/8-bit Uncompressed Quicktime file, ProRes422 (any profile), MPEG-4/H.264 or even DPX sequence files then we can do it for you. We’re also able to undertake transfers from any of the above formats in either PAL or NTSC standards, too.

Large and Small format tape cassettes

We can handle both the large and the small tape cassettes, so all you have to do is to send us your tapes for transfer without worrying about whether they’ll be transferred. We’ll do the rest.


We’re now offering all Betacam tape format transfers in both PAL and NTSC at a standard rate according to the tape running times. These are as follows:

  • Tape up to 30 mins = £20.00 per tape;
  • Tape up to 60 minutes = £30.00 per tape;
  • Tape up to 90 minutes = £40.00 per tape.

Depending on the destination format (eg: DVD disc, ProRes422, 10-bit/8-bit uncompressed Quicktime file, MPEG-4/H.264 file, DPX delivered on Hard Disc Drive or USB stick, Memory Card, etc) we are also able to offer discounted prices on volume in excess of 10 units.
