At Digital Video Lab, our VHS to DVD & 8mm FILM to Digital Transfer Service is second to none. Our Process is Unique, one of it’s kind & Built from the Ground Up by Professional Archivist In Film & Video.

Our First & Most Important Step is to Digitally Remaster your original footage using Professional Broadcast Grade Equipment with HD Digital Encoders! This extracts High quality images and sound during the playback and digitization process. Incompatibilities between Systems & Computers is non exsistant since we are not a mass-production company and able to cater to each client’s individual requirements.

Unfortunately, standard industry practises use consumer grade Cameras, VCRs connected to Low Quality Consumer Encoders. This simplifies the mass production process thus sacificing the Quality of Visuals & Sound from it’s original video quality. Higher Video Compression with lower Resolution degenerates the orginal Video Quality and Sound. Audio Sync Issues & digital artifacts is always present with washed out colors and exposure!

We work directly and personally with all clients to insure we provide them with the highest level of quality. We guide them through the entire process while we accomplish all their requirements maintaining our moral obligation to make sure we preserve thier legacy in it’s purist form!

Here's How We Do It...
All Digital Files & DVDs are Remastered, & Encoded 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. Professional encoders apply 3D Noise Reductions to reduce Video Noise and Digital Artifacts for a cleaner, Purer Picture quality. We use Professional Encoders that allow us to fine tune and increase resolution to 720 or 1080p.

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. Once High Quality Digital Files are Created we then :

Trim your Video Files by editing out gaps or dead space longer than a minute.
For Authored Dvds 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.
Background Music for each Menu.
Carefully inspect and Quality control before being delivered. We also secure backups until clients have a chance to review.
Most companies charge you well over $80 per Hour for each Authored DVD! Our Customized DVDs are only $39 & Includes Files!
We Proudly Practice an open Transparent Policy so here is some advise below…. :
It’s simple, if other companies can’t provide you with a title and menu or even a Digital Files of YOUR choice – then it’s NOT an authored DVD, it’s a straight transfer.

Beware, some companies create the Digital Files by creating DVDs first, then “RIPPING” the DVD to extract the file. Quality loss is over 20% using this method, while making people feel they are getting a “Great Deal” by receiving a DVD and a File, for the same price.

At Digital Video Lab, we ALWAYS create the files first, then author the DVDs. Our Goal is Simply, “We Preserve and Enhance Quality”.

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,

Bobbie.
