VHS / VCR tapes don't last forever. Your old precious home videos from
years ago are rotting away in your storage boxes but they can be
transferred to DVD's so you can then install them on your computer and
share them with all your friends and family around the world.
What type of media we can convert?
We convert standard VHS, VHS-C and Mini DV tapes to digital or DVD
format. Any other
type of cassette we can do, ONLY if you provide the video camera for it
to play back in. We have all the cables and adapters needed to
hook it up to our system for conversion. If you do not have a
working player, unfortunately we can not convert those types of tapes.
Mini DV tapes
VHS / SVHS tapes
What we can not convert
We can not convert the following cassette tapes unless you can provide
us with the original player in working condition.
8mm / Hi 8 / Digital 8, Beta Video cassette, MicroMV
We can't convert different Country formats, so if recorded in another
Country it won't work with our equipment.
Reasons to convert your old VHS tapes include:
1.Preserving the video in digital format so they can literally last
2.You can throw away your old VHS player. They are becoming extinct
anyway and when your old VHS player dies, instead of buying a new one,
for the same price, you could have all your VHS tapes converted to DVD
so they can run on your Television DVD player or on the computer.
3.Easily make copies for friends and family using your computer.
4.Watch videos without having to rewind ever again.
5.Find a specific part in a video faster.

Compare to major competitor:
They take up 3 weeks turn around time. Twinbytes can do as
fast as same day depending on size of job and how busy we are.
They charge $20 for each two hours of video you go over the
maximum 2 hour (ie. a 6 hour video tape (1 tape) would cost you $60.
Compare to Twinbytes at $10 for the next 2 hours totals $45saving $15 for upto 6 hours video. The reason this costs
extra is DVD's can only hold upto 2 hours video and we need to cut

Details explained: We convert your VHS tape to DVD on a disk, unless you specifically ask
for a raw digital format to edit and play directly on your computer.
Be sure to tell us if you want it in DVD format for the television, or in a
format for the computer. Also, let us know if you are using it on
a Mac versus Windows computer so we can provide the appropriate format
CD Sleeves and disks cost so much each, and a very tiny amount of labour
to create copies. So we have to charge extra for multiple copies as you
can see in the chart above.
Large videos that would normally
require more than one DVD will not cost you extra if you only want it in
digital format on an external hard drive or USB thumb drive.
