Mini DV to DVD
MINI DV TO DVD / DIGITAL SERVICE
Although a relatively new camcorder format Mini DV can be a fragile format and footage is often degraded in a short period of time. Where tapes have not been stored in a dark, temperature controlled environment there can often be problems with the sound and video stored on mini DV tapes. Certainly, these newer digital tapes are not as robust as their early, analogue counterparts and without action now you could needlessly lose treasured memories.
We convert your Mini DV tapes to DVD or video files for storing, sharing, viewing or editing on your PC or Apple Mac. Video files can be provided in a range for formats including DV, MPEG-2 or MP4.
By transferring your Mini DV tapes to DVD or converting them to files you can ensure your memories are preserved in a safe, digital format that can be easily shared or duplicated and will not deteriorate with age.
Our pricing structure is based on the amount of footage on your tapes. A single tape to DVD is £15 however, if 2 tapes will fit on to 1 DVD then it will cost £20. Mini DV’s usually record up to 1 hour of footage so it is likely we will fit at least 2 tapes depending on their length on to 1 DVD and often more bringing the cost per tape down further. For more information on our pricing structure and a quote please contact us. We also provide a bulk order rate for orders of 20 tapes and over. Simply contact us with a list of your tapes and requirements and we can advise.
