Super VHS-C Transfer and Conversion to Blu-Ray

Super VHS-C (Super VHS Compact) to Blu-Ray

Super VHS-C TransferWe will transfer and convert your Super VHS-C tapes direct to a computer using a range of video recorders which include JVC HR-DVS3, JVC HR-S7700, Panasonic AG-7330 and Samsung SV-5000W via S-Video connection to ensure you get the best quality from your old videotape.

We connect the video recorder directly to a broadcast quality encoder which is the Canopus ADVC3000, this enables us to clean up the video signal by removing chroma (colour) and luma (Mono) noise within the picture. As well as removing noise the white and black threshold is also improved and there is also horizontal and vertical outline enhance to improve the picture before capture. The audio and picture are also locked to ensure that there is no sync issues or audio delay, the signal is then sent to a computer using either Firewire or SDI connections.

When capturing your video footage we use Adobe Premiere Pro which allows us to capture your footage as an AVI file, the file will be captured using the DV codec which gives a file size of around 15GB for every hour of footage captured. When capturing via SDI we capture it as a raw file making it perfect for video editing, a raw AVI has a size of around 70GB per hour. We usually don’t give customers these files as they are the capture files we use to create your final file for Blu-Ray, Mpeg 4 (h.264) or other codecs that you may require.

Blu-Ray

Convert Super VHS-C to Blu-RayFor the transfer and conversion to Blu-Ray we typically capture using a firewire connection, once your tape is captured we will then remove overscan from your video footage, overscan is the black space around your video when captured digitally. We will also capture your tape in its native aspect ratio which is 4.3 giving black bars at each side of the picture when viewed on widescreen televisions or monitors.

Your Blu-Ray comes supplied in a slimline jewel case with a title printed on the disc, you can tell us what title you would like or we will use the title from the label on your videotape.

Depending on the length of your videotape we may need to put your footage on more than one disc, we encode your footage at a minimum bitrate of 7Mbps, allowing us to fit a maximum of 420 minutes (7 hours) on a single-layer disc. We also use dual-layer discs allowing us to put 720 minutes (12 hours) on a single disc meaning your footage is spread over fewer discs.

The cost of transferring to Blu-Ray is £6 per tape which covers your footage running up to one hour, should your footage run over an hour then there is an additional charge of £4 per additional hour. We only charge for the footage on the tape, not the tape length, for example, you have a 3-hour tape with a wedding recorded on it but the wedding only runs for 90 minutes this would make the total charge £9. You may not know the exact running time of your tape but don’t worry we charge £6 per tape upfront then let you know after your tape is transferred if your footage has run over an hour.

Blu-Ray Extras

 

Convert Super VHS Compact to Blu-RayWe offer a range of services to enhance the presentation and viewing of your Blu-Ray, we can supply your Blu-Ray in a plastic case with a full-colour cover showing nine photographs taken from your video footage, the disc will also show some of the nine photos along with the title. There is an additional charge of £5 per tape which is paid on top of the standard transfer price. this option is popular when giving the Blu-Ray as a gift or for a special occasion.

Another option is to get your tape upscaled to HD, we can upscale your footage without causing any additional pixelation, we are also able to change the aspect ratio to 15.9 which gives you a wider picture on your widescreen television, it does, however, crop a little at the top and bottom of the picture. The cost for upscaling is an additional £10 per tape which is paid on top of the standard transfer price.
