TAPE to DISC TRANSFER
Why should I have my tapes transferred to CD/DVD?
VHS, VHS-C, and Hi8 videos won't do you much good when your player finally dies. Of course, that's assuming you even still have something that plays that tape! Same goes with audio tapes (we can do both regular and micro!).
How do you transfer the tapes?
We play your tape in a quality player (VHS, Hi8, micro/cassette) and capture it into the computer. This is done in house (meaning, the tape never leaves our office). We then bring it into digital video/audio editing software and format it so it will play on a DVD/CD player.
How much does it cost?
For a basic transfer, we charge $35 for the first tape, then $25 for each additional tape. DVDs hold one-and-a-half to two hours of content. CDs can hold up to 80 minutes if processed for audio. We can also make the files into MP3s so you can play them on your computer, or smart device.
Duplicate CD/DVDs are $15.
Can I see an example?
Sure. Here's a video we transferred for the promoter of ProgPower USA. There were 15 songs on the VHS. We created chapters for each song, so the customer could easily choose which song to listen to. We also created a DVD with each song as a separate video file so they could be uploaded to YouTube.
How do I get my tapes to you?
The Digital Pen is a home-based business. So we try to meet folks in a convenient location in and around Rome, GA. Often, we'll meet in the Rome Braves parking lot, for example. Just contact us and we'll set up a time and place!
