A large part of the population has already disposed of their old videotapes and cassettes that were left unviewed. Yet, among these video cassettes there are often some hidden gems. It could be some feature film that we used to watch often, a TV show that is not available on DVD, or home videos of a communion party or a birthday.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Unfortunately, we do not offer any video editing services. We only deliver a raw digital file/copy of your sent footage. However, you can always decide to edit the digital file yourself with an editing software of choice.
Prices are calculated per tape or by 10 minutes of footage.
For example, you would like to have a VHS tape digitized. However, this tape contains 72 minutes of footage.
As displayed in the pricing table above, digitization of a VHS tape costs € 6,00 per 60 minutes. So, 10 minutes of footage is equal to € 1,00.
Multiply this € 1,00 with 7 (7 * 10 = 70 minutes) and you end up with a final price of € 7,00 for 72 minutes of video.
The 2 minutes that were leftover will be rounded down to make an even 70.
If the footage were to be 76 minutes, the number would have been rounded up to an even 80 minutes.
You can send any of the video tapes or cassettes that you would like to have digitized to our warehouse, or you could choose to leave the tapes yourself at our reception.
Along with your package you add a document that contains your name, address, email, and telephone number. In addition, you are free to supply us with your own external hard drive, USB, or DVD/CD.
