MiniDV Cost and Service Details
New Video Transfer Website
We have a new web site for video conversion work - see London-Video-Cine.
If you cannot make it into our shop simply post your tapes to us - don't forget to include your instructions, address and telephone number. On receipt of your work we will call you, confirm your instructions, and take payment by credit card over the phone.
There is also an option to pay online. You can simply include your receipt with your tapes when you post then to us.
We can transfer your miniDV tape to a data DVD as editable files for editing on your own computers. We give you uncompressed AVI files suitable for editing on MACs and PCs. Alternatively give the MiniDV tape to us and we can edit it for you. Editable file sizes can be very large so you may need to supply an external hard drive or large capacity USB stick.
Although DVDs last a lifetime without deterioration in quality one scratch or scuff mark will render it unplayable. For this reason we strongly advise you to order an extra DVD back up copy of your MiniDV Video work - the cost is only £5 per tape and well worth it for peace of mind
By asking us to transfer your video tapes you are giving us an assurance that you are the copyright owner or that you have permission from the copyright owner to duplicate the work.
We only accept Video to DVD transfer work on this basis.
NTSC is a video format standard widely used in many other parts of the world such as USA. Japan and much of South America.
So if your tape was originally filmed in any of these countries it will need to be converted to PAL format to play on UK TV systems.
The cost of NTSC transfer to PAL and encoded to DVD is £40 per MiniDV video tape.
Video Tape Repair
We can fix any type of physical damage to the tape such as snapped or entangled tape, tapes which are immediately ejected and replacing the tape housing.
We cannot generally fix problems associated with bad recordings, camera equipment malfunctions and sound problems.
If you have accidentally erased the tape we cannot restore the footage.
