Video to DVD conversion in Manhattan, NYC


To qualify for these quantity discount prices, please read the following conditions:

1.

American TV system (called NTSC) tapes only - PAL tapes are different prices.
Tapes must be in NTSC (USA TV system), not in PAL (Europe, Asia or Africa) or SECAM TV system.
PAL / SECAM tapes are $29.95 each

 

2.

You can combine different video tape types to get the quantity discounts.
VHS, VHS-C, 8mm (Video8, Hi8 & Digital8) and mini DV tapes can be combined to get the discounts.
No other tapes, such as Standard size DV cam tape, 3/4 inch U-matic, 1/2 inch BetaSP, BetaMax, HD (High Def), Micro MV tape nor PAL tapes can be combined (regular prices apply).

 

3.

One tape to one DVD video disc each transfer only.
The discount prices are based on one tape to one DVD each basis.

If you want to have multiple tapes transferred to a single DVD disc,
the price is $29.95 per NTSC tape and $39.95 per original PAL tape.
You would pay more per tape to get multiple tapes on a DVD disc, because it will take much longer and more attention for our lab to do your work. *1
But it still make sense when you're planning to make multiple DVD copies afterward.

 

4.

The whole tape will go on to a DVD disc.
No video editing, such as a portion of a tape transfers.

 

5.

No Quick Time files - DVD video disc only. *2
MOV(Quick Time), WMV, AVI, MP4 or any other digital format are $29.95 each.

 

6.

Each tape must be less than 4 hours.
A longer than 4 hours tape will be transferred to two DVDs, and the price is double.

 

7.

A half deposit required for an order over $50.00.
This does not apply to Send-in orders (by FedEx, messenger service or Mail).

 

*1
Let's say you have 3 of 30 minutes tapes. With one tape to one DVD method, we can use 3 systems simultaneously, therefore all work will be done within an hour or so.
If we have to put 3 tapes to a DVD, we have to wait till the first tape is converted to the DVD, then start the next one and so on and on. It takes much longer and need more care, therefore gets expensive.
See also here.
*2
DVD video disc means, a DVD disc that will play on DVD players (and PC or Mac with DVD drive).
A data DVD disc (a DVD disc with MOV or other files or data) is not a DVD video therefore it will not play on DVD players.
 
The prices are subject to change without notice.

With this method, the digital data on a tape will be transferred to DVD in its original digital format.

For HD DV tape, we will encode it to standard DVD, so you can play on a regular DVD player as well as PC/Mac computers.

Please note it's important that your mini DVDs MUST have been "FINALIZED" before brought to us. (*1)

Unless the DVD is not finalized, it cannot be played on other players except the camcorder that was recorded.

Not finalized DVD will not play on our DVD player either therefore we are unable to make copies.
We cannot finalize your mini DVD here. It must be done in your camcorder.
Please refer your manual and lean how to Finalize your disc in the camcorder.

Also note:
1) One-by-one copy only - no multiple mini DVDs to a single regular DVD.
2) Takes a couple of hours to a day to make mini DVD to regular DVD copies.

(*1)
What does "Finalize mini DVD" mean?
To play a DVD video disc, a DVD player(or PC/Mac) has to go to "index section" on the disc to know what contents are on the disc, where to start, where to end, how many chapters or how to show menu screen.
When you were recording videos, the disc is still "Open" and ready for next recording.
You have to let the camcorder know that you are done on the disc so that the camcorder can create the index section and write it to the mini DVD.
In other word, until you let the mini DVD know "I'm done", the mini DVD is open-ended and not playable, because the index section is not there yet.
This process(letting the mini DVD disc know that you are done and no more recording will be coming, so please create an index section on the disc) is called finalized.
