Media Conversion Services

Digicom offers media transfer services at very affordable prices.  Transfer your video or audio to digital format for download, or written to a USB Flash Drive. Every day, that tape media is deteriorating in quality just by sitting there.  Stop the loss of valuable video/audio by converting it to digital files today!

** Due to the decline in availability of DVD’s and writers, we no longer write videos to DVD, only to digital files.  

— Multiple studies have shown magnetic media that is stored in good conditions (humidity,
temperatures, free of dust & magnetic fields), they still will decay 10-20% over 10 years. — 

*** Only Non-Copyrighted Materials can be converted ***

All media conversion services are subject to a $25 minimum order.

Video Formats

Transfer your video to digital format for download, or have it written to a USB Flash Drive.  Every day, that tape media is deteriorating in quality just by sitting there.  Stop the loss of valuable video by converting it to digital files today! We can convert DVD, VHS, VHS-C, Hi8, MiniDV, Beta and BetaMax.

We like to remind everyone that old video formats only use, at best, 576 pixels (most 480).  While that video will convert over to new formats and be able to fill the screen in a letterboxed mode, it will not be HD quality.  It can only work with the video format it was recorded in originally and do the best it can to fill in the gaps.

Return Media Files Methods & Fees

All data is moved to digital format (.MP4) and placed on USB 3.0/3.1 Flash Drives which can handle large numbers of videos on one drive.
16GB Flash Drive $12.00 (includes transfer costs)
32GB Flash Drive $15.00 
(includes transfer costs)

We can also put data on a provided USB Drive, but it must be USB 3.0 standards at a minimum.  

We no longer accept USB 2.0 drives as acceptable media due to its extremely slow speeds of transfer and the additional costs that we incur for labor.  If it has to be on a USB 2.0 drive, there is a $5.00 charge per flash drive written to.

 

 

Rules & Additional Fees

While we will never charge for a blank tape or even a very short video, all other videos that are sent to us are subject to a conversion fee.  We are going to assume any media dropped off is to be converted and labor will be put into them to ensure a great quality conversion.  Since we do this as a labor of love for our customers and only charge our labor costs, we can’t give credit back for example, when you find out the video is of your ex’s family, haha.  We hope you understand.

*MOLD FEES* We may reject any tapes that have mold build up on the tape itself.  However, if manageable, we will convert tapes with an extra charge because it requires disassembling the VCR and cleaning after each tape so it does not permanently damage components.  That price will be quoted before we do work once we evaluate the level of tape degradation.

Super8 Film / 8mm Film Reels

We digitize each frame of the film individually directly from the film, not captured by a projection which can cause flicker and distortion.  8mm film is decaying as you read this, causing the pictures on the film to be lost forever.  It’s time to digitize that film, so you don’t lose valuable memories.   Once in digital format, it can be viewed on a computer, tablet and even cell phone, or written to a DVD. Please note that we are not able to capture sound.
