HOURS: MON-FRI 8:30am - 11:30am (up to 7:30pm Tuesdays & Thursdays)
What is the difference between Deluxe, Basic, and Budget DVDs?
We specialize in making custom edited DVD's, and have the capability to do audio/video transfers from any of your own recordings (we cannot transfer "store bought" Video Tapes, Cassettes, or DVDs)
*Betamax Tape, PAL* & Secam* $5.00 additional charge, **VHS tapes only. "Beta" & "Betamax" is a registered trademark of Sony Corporation
Don't have a VCR anymore and need to know what's on your tapes?
We can help you with that too:
(1) $5.00 charge per tape, you can watch your tapes here (up to 10 mins. per tape) or you can leave them and we can preview the first 20 mins. of a tape to tell you what's on it...NO store will do that for you!
(2) $10.00 / day (+$50 Deposit) you can rent a portable combo TV/VCR (VHS) to preview your tapes.
(3) $15.00 / day (+$100 Deposit) you can rent a Digital8 or MiniDV camcorder to preview your tapes.
(Because we offer these services, all tapes you give to us to transfer that are not blank and not copyrighted will be made into DVDs and charged regular price...please preview your tapes first, we do not "watch" tapes to see if they are duplicates of your other tapes)
Option 2: we play your Audio/Video Media for you for $30/hr. (1 hr. minimum charge)
If you have more than 6 items (viewing tapes is normally $5 each for up to 10 mins.), or you want to view/listen to them at length, we can also help you view your 8mm, Super 8 home movies, Betamax, VHS, Camcorder tapes, Slides, or listen to your Cassettes, and Audio Reel-to-Reel tapes*.
We have reasonable viewing fees of $30/hour (1 hour minimum), and after the first hour, we bill quarterly at $7.50 per 15 minutes. (example: 1 hour and 10 minutes would be billed at $45, not $60 like the other places)
*At least 1 Days notice is required...this cannot be done randomly at a moment's notice.
We can do audio/video output as:
* "Quicktime" is a registered trademark of Apple Computer, "DivXl" is a registered trademark of DivX Inc,. "Realplayer" are registered trademarks of RealNetworks
We can also take a short clip from your VHS, MiniDV, or even from your Digital Camera or Cell Phone, and help you upload it to popular Internet video sharing sites:(Click on picture below to see online movie)
