MiniDV to DVD or Digital service


The MiniDV tape offered consumers fabulous quality video in the early 2000’s. There was something magical about watching holidays at the beach or by the backyard pool and the saturated colours popping on the TV. It was almost like broadcast quality. It’s hard to believe that only 10 years later, the iPhone would be able to offer the same level of quality that this tape would record.

Our first camera was a MiniDV camera and we had loads of tapes.  If you are in the same position and looking for a MiniDV to DVD service, reach out to us & let us tell you about the more popular MiniDV to USB service. It’s also cheaper.

MiniDV to DVD or Digital service

Our MiniDV to DVD service puts these memories onto disc, but our more popular service puts them onto USB as digital files which can be placed into any modern TV. We are frequently placing 50,60,70 tapes onto 1 USB. Did we mention that we also upload them to the cloud for free with every order?

If you are interested in this type of service, send in your tapes & we’ll do the rest. Our state of the art technology will capture your home movies without any quality loss & digitise them to USB, DVD or the cloud.

Priced per tape, this means that any of your tapes can be as long as 6 hours and you still pay the same low price. That’s what we think is great value. So does everyone else.
