How does it work ?

First the damaged video cassette is striped down, cleaned, inspected and repaired, damaged or worn parts are replaced or the video tape reels are removed and inserted into a new video cassette housing with a new set of parts i.e. guide rollers, reel brakes, etc. If the video tape has been snapped or twisted, a repair (splice) will be carried out. When the tape is operational your video recording is converted to a digital and a standard video to DVD transfer will be completed for you. For additional security of your important recording, the DVD or DVDs will be sent out to you first by Royal Mail 1st Class and your original video tape will be safely stored for you. Once you have received your DVD and confirmed with us that all is OK, we can then return your original video cassette or recycle /dispose of it locally for you, depending on your chosen option. When a videotape has been damaged and repaired we recommend that it is not played in a domestic videotape player or camcorder as this may cause damage to the machine (your original video cassette will be labelled with a warning as appropriate).

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding our service or what you’d like to be digitised.
