Preserve your memories before they fade
Why fight with an old projector and screen, or an outdated VCR? Transfer your movies, photos, videos and slides to DVD, and have a screening at your next family get-together!
Why go to DVD?
DVDs don't get tangled in your player or gradually wear out from repeated viewing. Chapter points at 5-minute intervals allow you to find specific scenes far more easily than with videotape.
DVDs are also more convenient to store, since they take up less space than bulky videotapes. And you'll never have to remember to rewind again!
*Please note: Some DVD players may not be able to read the DVD-R format. Please ask us about ensuring that your player will read the DVD disc we produce.
How much will fit on a 2-hour DVD or tape?
Transfers are recorded in Standard Two Hour Speed. One VHS tape will hold approximately:
1600 ft. of 8mm film
2000 ft. of Super 8mm film
4000 ft. of 16mm film
850 slides or photos (about 8 seconds each)
Your memories are safe with us.
