Video to DVD transfer - How long does it take?

Time is what we want most, but... what we use worst.  ~Willaim Penn

Video tapes are transferred in real-time.  
As the video is playing the analog video signal is captured and converted to digital video.  So a 2 hour video tape would take two hours to be converted into digital.  
The VHS video is analog there is no way to transfer the video faster than real-time.  
Once the video is digital it can be trasfered onto a DVD at the speed of the DVD burner, 
e.g. 12x 24x or 36x faster than real-time.

Renee & Marcus Mazol Tov & thanks for the kind words!

Digital Video Services

Marcus from Hoboken
I brought Dan a stack of tapes 

from our wedding, taken by high school 
kids that we knew and invited for 
just that purpose. Neither of us 
had great expectations, particularly me, 
if the expectation was that I was going 
to edit them. I found Dan on the 
internet and dumped the tapes on him 
with no idea what to expect. 
Dan did an outstanding job stitching 
hours of video into something we 
can actually watch! He made amateur 
video into a professional presentation. 
Suggestion: hire kids to take video of 
your wedding and bring them to Dan. 
Spend money saved on honeymoon.

Event Marketing Through Video Interviews

Video Interviews are a cost efficient and effective way to market your business, yet most companies miss out on great opportunities to produce them.

Millions of dollars are spent by businesses every year hosting, attending, or taking part in events such as trade shows, seminars and conferences.  Most of the time, companies overlook a simple marketing opportunity they can create during these events.  Video Interviews capture the collective knowledge of the industry experts, clients, and suppliers who are already in attendance.  
Video interviews can be used for many things:
1.  Driving traffic to your event website
2.  To send to attendees to remind them of who was there and what was said
3.  To inform industry leaders what is happening in your industry and how important your event is
4.  To portray to others that your event is relative and important to your industry and that they should attend the next one
5.  To show the caliber of people and talent that were at your event
6.  To promote the event for future years
7.  To effectively show others that you are a leader in your industry
The first step to creating a quality Interview Video is hiring a professional video production company, like Home Video Studio – Westfield.  Hiring a professional production team will ensure you end up with a video with high-quality picture, audio and lighting. The second step is to have your event coordinator schedule interview times between your presenters and attendees.  Lastly, you will need to formulate your questions.  You should discuss the questions and interview lengths with your video production team during a pre-production meeting.  Remember to keep your questions informative and on-topic.
If you can imagine it, we can do it!

Preparing your tapes to be transferred.

As you are preparing your tapes to be transferred to Gold Archival DVD here are a few tips you need to know:How to Handle Your Video Tapes

  • Never touch the tape itself. Hold it by the side of the cassette
  • Rewind the cassette before storing it.
  • Keep away from curious kids; avoid dropping or banging the tapes.
  • Keep cassettes away from magnetic fields (Top of the Old TV)
  • Don't leave a cassette in the car where it will be exposed to heat and cold
  • If using a new cassette and it's still cold, let it warm up to room temperature.
  • Occasionally fast forward and rewind a tape that's being stored a long time.
How to Store Your Video Tapes

  • Store in conditions that are stable, cool and dry.
  • Stay away from hot, humid and dusty.
  • Store cassettes in the cassette case.
  • Store your tapes vertically and not flat to distribute the gravity pull equally, stably and avoid edge damage.
