Magnetic tape degrades over time and VCRs have been known to destroy tapes. Because there is physical contact between the play head and tape, the simple act of watching your video reduces its quality. I can transfer your VHS, Hi-8, DV, or photos to DVD. In digital format your precious family memories will be preserved for generations. In order to preserve the highest quality possible I only put 1 hour of content on each single-layer DVD or 2 hours of content on each dual-layer DVD.

Costs listed below include 2 single-layer DVDs per hour of content or 2 dual-layer DVDs per 2 hours of content, one to play and one to keep as a backup. Additional DVDs are $5/copy.

You can click on the images below to view a short video clip of some of the work I've done. Keep in mind that the quality has been greatly reduced for viewing on the web. On the actual DVD you receive the small pictures are clickable links to take you directly to that scene in the DVD or slideshow, but here the menus are not interactive.
