VHS to DVD Transfer

The combining of multiple tapes to DVD can bring with it some challenges. The option exists to combine video tapes into one or multiple DVDs, depending on the customer’s preference. This can be useful for combining multiple tapes of similar subject matter, including transferal of all kids’ birthday parties onto one compilation DVD, for example. The only limitation is a 100-year archival DVDs hold up to 2 hours of video so each combined video must have an average running time of one hour or less.

Chapter Markers

Add chapter markers to a VHS to DVD transfer as an option. Chapter markers make the viewing experience more convenient by being able to hit next or previous buttons and find the right spot. This will allow customers to jump easily from one chapter to the next or return to the beginning of a chapter and watch again. Chapter marker placements are fully customized and may be placed in any scene or order of one’s choosing.
