VHS tapes to USB / MP4 / DVD
Camcorder to DVD / Blu-Ray Transfer Service
Our camcorder tape transfer service is incredibly similar to our VHS transfer service so if you've read that page you'll have to excuse us if we repeat ourselves!
Basic Tape to DVD Service
This is our basic service with no added extras, just a high quality copy from everything at the start of the tape until the tape is finished or the recording is stopped as the footage has finished.
This is perfect for backing up tapes for the convenience of watching on DVD but aren't of any great importance.
Our pricing is very straight forward. We charge £10 per hour of footage we transfer. We think it's much fairer to charge for the amount of footage you have than on how long the tape is, after all, half the tape could be blank!
We do have a minimum charge of £20 for camcorder tape transfers as it takes a little while to get new orders setup, so that helps to cover the time it takes. So anything up to the first two hours of footage will be £20 and any further hours will be charged at £10 per hour.
Length of Camcorder Tape
Per hour of footage
Please note there is a minimum order value of £20
Explanation of our prices
You may have been shopping around for tape transfer services and found our prices to be slightly higher than other companies, but let us explain why.
The processes that we use to transfer VHS and camcorder tapes are more involved than many of our competitors and produce a better product for the customer but it takes longer to create the transfer.
Enhanced Tape to DVD or Blu-Ray Service
This is our more advanced service which is perfect for cherished recordings from tape that are going to be watched time and again. We transfer the recording onto DVD or Blu-Ray disc via our computer systems, editing out the fuzzy part that are almost always noticeable at the start and end of recordings when one video runs into another.
Your DVD or Blu-Ray disc will start with a crisp shot and finish in exactly the same way.
Once we have transferred your recording onto our computers we can offer a range of services which we can add to each transfer to make them extra special.
Length of Camcorder Tape
Per hour of footage
Please note there is a minimum order value of £24
Colour and Brightness Enhancement
If you VHS tape hasn't aged very well you may find it is rather dark, or has developed a colour cast.
It isn't just age that can cause these problems, videos filmed in dark conditions or under flourcesant lighting can also create dark videos or colours that don't look right. In many cases we can fix the problems, or at the very least reduce the severity of the effects!
Colour & Brightness Enhancement
We hope to have some video showing our video enhancements soon, please check back or call us for more details.
Chapter Points at regular intervals
For easy navigation through your DVD or Blu-Ray disc we can add chapter points – just like the films you buy. They will be inserted at five minute intervals (or at a time interval you request), making it easy to skip back and forth between different sections of the tape.
Please note these have to be ordered when you initially send the tape to us, we can't offer the service once we have transferred the tape.
Chapter points at regular intervals
Custom Designed Personalised Disc and Disc Box - Free and included on both standard and enhanced services
When we create the cover for the disc (we print directly onto the disc) and the box cover we can put any wording you like onto both the disc and box cover. It makes for a really personal touch, especially if the transfers are a present for a loved one.
Pricelist for the enhanced service for Blu-Ray - we can fit up to TEN hours of footage on one disc!
The price increases over DVD are due to two factors:
Blu-Ray media is very expensive to buy at the moment as it is new technology.
Because we can fit up to ten hours of footage onto one disc, it takes a long time to edit, enhance, prepare and encode the disc ready for playback.
Amount of footage copied onto one disc
£25 per hour
Chapter points at 5 minute intervals
£15 per disc
Personalised disc and disc box artwork
£5 per disc

We transfer records onto CD in the way that they were meant to be played - as one long continuous recording. When you receive your transferred record on CD there will be one long track which will be the whole of the record.
We don't offer track splitting as standard as it is a very time consuming process to manually select the start and end of each piece of music and add the song details for each track. It is something we can offer but we will price it separately depending on how much work is involved on each record. Please ask for more details.
These backup copies are for you as the owner of the original, in the event of the original being sold, the digital copy we have made for you must stay with the original. Because of this reason we can only make only one copy in each format.
From our offices just outside Preston in Lancashire, we can provide record / LP and Vinyl transfer services across the UK. Why not contact us today and discover how our LP transfers can enhance long forgotten recordings and make your old music a pleasure to listen to again.
