Nearly all customers now take video files on a USB stick or hard disk (depending on quantity). Typically we provide large DV-AVI files of 13GB per hour, ideal for nearly all PC and Mac video editing software, and almost all customers also take the very inexpensive option of additionally having smaller MPEG4 files which will play on most modern TVs which have a USB socket. A single short tape will usually cost around £20, depending on running time. For larger jobs, assuming at least 10 hours, the cost for V2000 to video files is £13.50 per hour of useful material. Just email me for details.Video files are higher quality than DVDs, easier to edit, share and back up, so a much better archive format.
We believe that all V2000 recordings are made using the PAL television system. If you have a V2000 recording made in France, please contact me to discuss this.
We have an easy order page, just select what kind of tapes you have and supply your details. I will then confirm the price, or best guess at the price, and let you know the address to send the tapes.

Usually I transfer to video-DVD but options include transfer to computer file, miniDV tape and more.
