At Digital Video Lab, our VHS to DVD & FILM to DVD transfer service is second to none.We custom design each DVD individually from the ground up. DVDs include Interactive Menus with Music and Titles, photo montage and much more! Most importantly, we remaster your original footage using Professional Broadcast Grade Equipment which delivers top quality images and sound from your videos during the playback and digitizing process. Compatibilities are a non issue since we are not a mass-production company and all DVDs are even guaranteed to work on new Blu-Ray Players.

Most companies use consumer grade Camera/VCR to DVD recorder setups for mass production, known in the industry as "straight transfers". This type of generic transfer lowers the quality of visuals and sound from it's orginal video and causes playback compatibility issues with many consumer DVD players.

Sometimes, DVD's created in this method also tend to cause your videos to freeze and skip during playback. Audio sync issues have been known to be a common problem too.
Here's How We Do It...
All our DVDs are Remastered and Authored, meaning your videos are :

1. Played Back using Broadcast Professional Grade Equipment. This important first step insures pristine images and sound from your videos. Then...

2. Digitized in it's Highest Quality Settings to Minimize Video Compression. 3D Noise Reductions is applied to reduce Video Noise and Digital Artifacts for a cleaner, Purer Picture quality.

3. Time Base Correctors are used to adjust and stabilizes Visuals while Color Saturation, Sharpness & Contrast is corrected. Audio is upgraded to Digital Quality, 48khz. TBC is used on all formats!

4. Newly Created Videos files are Authored & for each DVD we:

Trim your videos and edit out gaps or dead space longer than a minute.
We create and customize a Navigation Menu with Titles, Scene selection and Chapter points.
Included with each title menu, we design a photo Montage from your videos with a title of your choice with dates & Descriptions. *see example below
Background Music for each Menu.
Carefully inspect and quality control before being delivered.
Most companies charge you well over $80 per Hour for each Authored DVD! Our Customized DVDs are only $39
Other advantages of authored DVDs :
We can combine multiple tapes onto the same dvd and each tape can be viewed and controlled independently from the title menu.

A note of advise: It's simple, if other companies can't provide you with a title and menu or even a Digital File of YOUR choice - then it's NOT an authored DVD, it's a straight transfer!

All our hand designed DVDs,  include Interactive Menus with Scene Selections and custom titles and photo montage.

Customer Testimonials
Dear Ray, I am so pleased with the DVDs you made for me from my family videos. Some of the tapes were 34 years old, and it brought back such nice memories to see my children as babies. The DVDs are excellent quality and the menus you designed on each DVD make it very easy to find exactly the scene I want to view. I will happily and confidently recommend you to any friends who need to have their tapes converted.
Thanks again,
