  Sending Your Video and Camcorder Tapes to us.
  We strongly  recommend sending your video  and camcorder tapes by royal mail special delivery or another trusted courier 
  Smaller camcorder tapes are best sent in their original plastic case in a good quality bubble wrap style envelope please label both the tapes and cases.  
  Full size VHS video tapes are heavy and can easily be damaged, we advise sending them in cardboard sleeves the type normally associated with blank VHS tapes, using a good quality bubble wrap style envelope or wrapped cardboard box. If possible try to bind the video tapes together or pack tightly to avoid movement and possible damage by colliding with each other if the package is shaken. Please ensure the actual video tapes are labelled  not just the sleeves.
  If possible send an e-mail advising us of the delivery and tracking details if available, we will send a return e-mail advising of their arrival with us.

Can I use my DVD for editing?

There is not a simple answer to this question. With most domestic editing software you can't edit from a DVD with out first converting the video content of the DVD to a suitable editable digital file usually Mpeg2 this is commonly known as ripping the DVD.

Digital editing / backup file  All our DVDs are individually made from your videos using digital hardware based computer technology and with most of our transfer services we also produce an editable digital back up file that we store for 30 days on our system. This file is in an Mpeg2 format that is suitable for use with most PC based editing software and we can supply a copy of this file for you on a DVD data disc for a small additional cost normally £5.The Mpeg2 file can be copied to your Hard Disc Drive on your computer and imported into suitable editing software  with out having to be previously converted.
 If you don't have editing software or experience problems carrying out the editing our economy editing service may be of help to you. If it less than 30 days from receiving the disc then we will have a copy of the file which we can access for from your reference number on the disc or if it is after 30 days then simply send the disc back to us so that we can copy the file back onto our system.

Can I make copies of my DVD?


The DVD is made from video material you supply so we do not put any restrictions on copying the DVD discs.
However our current additional copy price of £5 or down to £3.34 if you order 3 additional copies (Produced and presented the same as the main copy) may be worth considering.
