Betamax to DVD

 
 
Betamax Tape
Betamax lost out in it battle with VHS to become the dominant format in the home. They come in various lengths ranging from 30 to 195 minutes.
 
We still have facilities to transfer Betamax tapes to DVD. Betamax tapes don't seem to last as long as VHS tapes so you need to get them transferred as soon as possible. 
 
We can transfer your Betamax tapes to DVD or even to computer files for you to edit yourself.
 
 
 
VHS and Betamax tapes

Size compared to VHS tape


Two hours on a DVD is the optimum quality. We can transfer 3 or 4 hours onto a single DVD but we have to reduce the quality to do so.

Cost to transfer:(basic service)
1 tape upto 2 hours onto 1 DVD £15.00
1 tape upto 3 hours onto 2 DVDs £20.00

Video to DVD Pro Service: On this service we transfer your tape to computer first, trim out any bits that are obviously not required, add a fade in and fade out, add chapter points and a menu before copying to DVD. Please note this is not as comprehensive as our editing service. 
Prices from £45 per 2 hours on a disc.

Discounts: Discounts are available for multi-tape orders. 
3-5 tapes - 5%. 6-19 tapes - 10%, 20+ tapes - 20%

Packaging
Each DVD is printed with a title of your choice or we use what is on your tape label. Each DVD comes in a standard DVD case. Customised case inserts are available. Cost depends on what you require.

Not sure what is on your tapes?
We can go through your tapes prior to transfer to let you know exactly how much the transfer will cost. If you decide not to go ahead there is a £25.00 charge for the review service. If you do go ahead the service is FREE.
