Note: Transfer fees are the same for MP4 or DVD.

DVD orders include one (1) disc, labeled and inserted in plastic "C-shell" style case. DVDs are standard definition only. Additional copies of transferred DVDs are also available.

MP4 files require a physical drive, and you may supply your own if you would like. Otherwise, eThree Media will place your videos on a USB Flash Drive, yours to keep and guaranteed to work for 30 days ($15). Please make at least one backup of all your important digital files!

Looking to preserve your endangered or important video content from some old tapes?

Some folks call it "duplication." Others call it "making copies." Still others call it "video conversions." But, we call it "video transfers," because that's really what we're talking about.

If you need to convert some personal video to something that you can actually play on today's devices and easily copy for family members, eThree Media can transfer your personal videotapes to an MP4 digital file.

While no format can preserve your material indefinitely, getting your memories off of old and perishable videotape and onto a widely used digital format like MP4 enables you to more easily copy, backup, share and store your priceless videos well into the future. So, that's what we recommend. But, we'll still transfer your video to a DVD if you prefer. Our prices are the same whichever you choose.

All standard definition video signals are processed through broadcast level equipment like the Leitch/DPS 575 to stabilize the signal and make slight corrections, if necessary. And, audio can be boosted, too.

Using eThree Media's Teranex equipment, we can also conform your old standard definition footage to HD resolution and even change it to match different frame rates - something that can be very useful for documentary production! We can offer a variety of higher quality video file formats in these situations for the pros. Let us know about your requirements for a custom quote on your upconversion project.

And now, new to our vintage equipment inventory, the industrial grade RTI TapeChek 470 enables us to clean moldy or dirty VHS tapes right in our own shop. So, don't throw out those recently found VHS tapes that look worse for wear! Let us revive your tape.

Feel free to contact us with any questions before you come, and to make an appointment.

Sorry, but eThree Media does not handle celluloid film at this time.
