We can transfer your video and audio tape to DVD or digital computer files for your Mac or PC using our in-house equipment. We're a family business and we've been operating this service in Bournemouth, Dorset since 1990. We take UK and international orders.

Old home movie tapes, historical archive footage and audio material from decades ago can still be safely transferred to a modern, digital format. Check out the tape formats we can transfer below.

Transfer to DVD from £25

£15 per hour of video or audio. Discounts available on orders over 10 hours.

TRANSFER TO COMPUTER FILE from £20- RECOMMENDED

£12 per hour of video or audio. Discounts start after 10 hours or more. You'll need to supply a Hard Drive/USB Stick with your tapes or ask us to purchase one for you. We can give you an estimated total file size so you know how much storage space you'll need.

+ Why Us?

We are one of the longest running tape transfer services running in the UK. Having started our film production business in the 60's we were there when tape formats first came out.

All transfers are made in-house so we can ensure the safety of your tapes.

+ Why Now?

With many tape formats now beginning to suffer from mould and general deterioration due to inappropriate storage conditions or just wear, now is the time to have your tapes transfered to DVD or computer files.

+ Will my tapes get damaged?

Your tapes are in safe hands. The process doesn't cause any damage and once complete we will of course return them to you.

+ Why is transfer to computer file recommended?

Compared to a DVD transfer, a computer file gives you image quality that is noticeably more faithful to the original recording. It also means you won't have to get your DVD's transferred when DVD players stop being produced! You're welcome to order transfers to both DVD and computer files, just let us know what you need.
