VHS to DVD - Super VHS to DVD
Redwood Entertainment/DVD Memories will get the best results in transferring your memories from VHS to DVD. In order to get the best quality from your video tape, we transfer via a high quality professional player through a TBC (Time Base Corrector) to improve the stabilty and quality of the image. We also use a real SVHS player (Super VHS to DVD) to transfer SHVS videos (not a pretend unit that can 'sort of' play the tapes.) We also can handle ELP (Extended Long Play) videos.
This is fed into our state-of-the-art computers and processed with maximum quality and care to ensure that the resulting DVD is at least, if not better, than the tape supplied to us. Unlike other production companies proporting to do a professional job on your videos, we do not use a domestic VCR/DVD combo to transfer your video tapes onto DVD.
Our production staff have over 30 years experience in professional sound and vision and we are suitably qualified to handle your precious memories. We take the time to check and inspect your video as it's loading, and before we write your DVD to ensure it's the best we can do for you.
It's not just the
equipment that makes the difference... Give us a try today.
Some history... Video Home System, better known by its abbreviation VHS,is a video tape recording standard developed during the 1970s The recording medium is a ½ inch (12.7 mm) wide magnetic tape wound between two spools, allowing it to be slowly passed over the various playback and recording heads of the video cassette recorder. The tape speed is 3.335 cm/s for NTSC, 2.339 cm/s for PAL. Other speeds include LP and EP/SLP. These speed reductions cause a slight reduction in video quality (from 250 lines to 230 analog lines horizontal); also, tapes recorded at the lower speed often exhibit poor playback performance on recorders other than the one they were produced on. In 1987 JVC introduced the new format called Super VHS which extended the bandwidth to over 5 megahertz, yielding 420 analog horizontal lines (For comparison DVD is 480 analog lines horizontal, so a Super VHS tape can capture a DVD or broadcast standard definition DTV video with only a small amount of blurring.
