DV tape to DVD

DV footage is high quality, but with the mechanical nature of the tape, it will eventually deteriorate, and playing a DV tape through your video camera connected to your TV is never a convenient way to view your footage. Have it transferred to DVD, and not only keep that footage for years to come, but you can add great features, edit out mistakes, or combine the video footage with other media.

  • Although the utmost care is taken, due to the mechanical nature of the media, we can not be held responsible for breakages.
  • Adding content to a disc results in the need for more storage space, and may necessitate the need to increase the compression ratios of video and audio. Doing so decreases the quality of that video and audio.
  • The responsibility on copyright rests on the customer on an music tracks used on the disc.
