We convert the most popular analog and digital camcorder and VCR video tape formats to DVD.  Our video to DVD transfer service includes home movie conversion of the older VHS, SVHS, VHS-C, SVHS-C, Betamax and UMatic videotape types to DVD, followed by the smaller more recent camcorder size video cassettes like Video8 (sometimes called 8mm), Hi8, Digital8, DVCAM and Mini-DV videotapes. We support digital video conversions in either NTSC (North American) or PAL (European) broadcast standard formats.

All of your videotapes are handled with care while the video conversion to DVD process and post-production work are underway. Your digitized videos will always be encoded at a higher than standard rate to ensure that you get the best results your video tapes can offer, without the contribution of unnecessary compression artifacts and video noise byproducts that would certainly be introduced at lower encode rates. We would rather provide you with more DVD disks than give you poor quality.

As an additional benefit and at no extra cost, we will edit out those annoying blue screens, very poor video segments and long stretches of nothing—like those moments of forgetting to turn off your camera. Our aim is to provide watchable and entertaining video rather than include useless footage on your newly minted DVD disc(s). The final word is that you can expect professional grade results and attention to detail at competitive prices when having HomeDVD convert your videotapes to DVD. VHS to DVD transfers at it’s best.
