Videos (which use magnetic tape over which a magnetic sensor is physically run to store your information) degrade over time. Video tapes were only ever intended to hold information for about 10 years and, in many cases, they begin to degrade even before this depending on how they are stored.
Backup your Important Videos
Don’t run the risk of losing your valuable video footage, convert your analogue Video Tapes to Digital format. The most convenient format for most people is conversion to DVD, as the resultant disks can then be played in standard DVD players or on your PC.
If you don’t want to run the risk of losing your valuable videos of weddings, holidays, birthdays, festive celebrations, close relatives and other personal milestones then act now, contact us on 086 83 89 877 or email video@DZyne.net and we’ll arrange to have all your valuable memories transferred into a more long term and safer format.
Professional Hardware Copies
We use a professional direct hardware to hardware recording method which guarantees the best results. Your videos will obviously never be better quality than the original video, but we can create as faithful a copy as possible to the original, ensuring there is no loss of quality in the transfer. This is something which cannot be achieved using software based techniques through PC copying of your videos. As well as being complicated and frustrating, such methods invariably involve a loss of quality, sometimes quite severe, from the original video.
VHS or VHS-C Copies
We can accommodate copying Standard Video Format (VHS – large cassettes) or Camcorder (VHS-S and VHS-C) tapes to DVD and digital formats. We cannot at the moment copy Hi8 (Sony HandyCam) or MiniDV (digital mini-tape format), unless you can supply the camera on which the video was recorded – in which case we can record it direct from the camera. We hope to have in-house equipment to facilitate these formats in the near future.
We can also arrange to have your videos transferred to video formats playable directly on a PC without a DVD (such as AVI, MPEG or DivX) so that you can store your precious videos on your PC, laptop, tablet computer or phone and play them from there or forward them to others whenever you wish.
Editing Digital Videos
Once your videos have been converted into digital format, whether on DVD or in a computer accessible format, you can then edit the videos in any way you wish, without fear of degradation of the footage. Once you store it in digital format it can be copied infinitely with no loss of quality whatsoever.
Confidentiality and Discretion Assured
As these videos obviously contain footage of a personal nature you will want to be assured that your information will be kept completely confidential and never passed on to third parties of any description. We can guarantee that our only aim is to make sure that you get returned to you the only copy of your information in a digital format so that your memories are protected. If you wish to have a document signed to this effect then we have no problem with such a request.
We copy a lot of these each week so we don’t actually view any video in full apart from checking that the video runs properly and copies right to the end.
Bearing the aforementioned point in mind we will refuse to copy videos that are illegal in anyway such as those containing copyright material or videos documenting illegal activity of any description. This service is perfectly legal and above board – we’d like to keep it that way. Apart from this we will transfer any personal videos which you have the right to copy.
Prices start from just €20 for the first video and €10 per video thereafter if there is more than one. Extra copies of the DVD’s can be provided for €5 each. We also offer a collect and deliver service which is available for free in the South Tipperary, North Cork, West Waterford and East Limerick areas. If you are from other areas of the country please just drop us a line and we can give you an idea of the cost involved.
