  Our transfer process  
  All video digitization is done in house by our skilled video technicians. All media is transferred using professional video decks that go through our Canopous ADVC 300 analog to digital converters, and then into our computer systems where we capture the footage in either Final Cut Pro or Adobe premiere pro.  
  We do not capture your video tapes into DVD recorders; everything goes through the computer first and then burned to DVD, Blu-Ray, or put onto your external hard-drive as an AVI or MOV file.
Video Capture
  You are charged on a per tape basis, with each DVD holding a maximum of two hours of video footage. If you would like tapes combined then this is possible at no additional fee. If you have shorter length tapes that you would like combined then please number your media or put them in the order you would like. All original materials are given back at the completion of project.  
  Output options  
  You have two options, either playable DVD or editable file for editing on your computer system. If you only want to view your video on your television or computer DVD player then you do not need editable footage. All playable DVD's come with chapter points approximately five minutes apart. If you choose editable files you have a choice between AVI file or MOV Quick time file. For PC we recommend AVI and for editing on a MAC we recommend MOV Quick time files.
