Frequently Asked Questions - HomeVideo Transfer Service
Q: Can I transfer Copyrighted
A: Digital transfer services are
available for home videotapes, movies, 35mm slides, 35mm negative or
prints made by the customer. If the customer does not own the
copyright, it is illegal to make copies and the orders will be
Q: Can the DVD made from slides,
digital flash memory cards or prints be viewed on a PC? Can prints be
made from it?
A: Yes. A DVD created from slides,
digital flash memory card or prints comes with a DVD slide show
that can be viewed on a DVD player, and includes archive-quality
high resolution JPEGs that can be viewed and printed on a PC.
Q: How long do DVDs last compared
A: The DVD-video format has a minimum
life expectancy of at least 100 years. Unlike videotapes, DVDs are
not recorded as a magnetic medium but rather by using a tiny laser,
burning microscopic pits onto a recording surface that lies
underneath a protective clear coating. Most videotapes of any format
will not be playable 20 years after first being recorded. The
earlier your Home Videotapes get transferred to DVD, the better
the quality of original video images and sound are likely to be.
A videotape wears out every time it is played. A DVD can be
played over and over without being worn out. A 100-year-old
DVD-Video will play as well as a newly recorded DVD. Every time a
copy of a videotape is made, it will lose
quality. Copying a non-copyright protected DVD will result in a
perfect copy, the same as the original.
Q: What is the Resolution and
Quality of these Home Video to DVD Transfers?
A: We transfer video to DVD in high
quality MPEG2 format. (software conversion of a video into DVD
format with 100% quality) The video signal remains at a full 720
X 576 pixels and 25 frames per second. No frames are dropped during
DVD recording. For TV viewing the DVDs will play as high as 525
lines of resolution, 60 fields/sec, depending upon the TV system
used for playback. The picture quality of the original home
videotape, meaning the picture lines and colours are generally
improved during transfer to DVD.
