Betamax Videotape Conversion to DVD, Blu-ray Disc, USB Flash Drive, or Hard Drive

This service package, as priced, is for conversion / digitizing of Betamax videotapes (consumer Beta).

Our unmatched, comprehensive video conversion package is offered at a convenient price, without sacrificing the quality. Your video content will be captured and restored using the best equipment in the industry and stored on commercial grade durable media. We take pride in our product and we make sure no job leaves our studio without a comprehensive quality check.

Please select the number of tapes and the output format desired. Then add it to your shopping cart. You may purchase duplicates of the DVD / Blu-ray Disc by adding the item "additional copies" to your shopping cart. After purchasing the service package online, you must send the tapes in for processing along with a copy of the receipt.

If you don't know the length of your tape or if your tape needs restoration, you may send it in for evaluation. Once we receive and evaluate your originals we will contact you with a report and a price quote.  Click here to print the verification order form.  

Output Formats

1. Premium DVD

This level of service includes a high quality transfer to DVD together with superior packaging and is highly recommended for saving and archiving your video memories.

  • Superior quality, workstation based dual-pass transfer (same as for commercial DVDs, best in the industry)
  • Video grade DVD media, custom ordered for maximum durability and playability   
  • Custom title printed direct on the DVD surface using an industrial process (thermal transfer)
  • DVD Amaray case with custom insert
  • Maximum running time per DVD: 120 minutes. One source tape per DVD* 

2. Blu-ray Disc
The video is captured and up-converted to BRD format. 

3. H-264 on USB Flash Drive
The video material is compressed using the H-264 codec and delivered on a suitable USB Flash Drive (a.k.a. “Thumb Drive”). It may be copied to a computer, IPhone, IPad and other similar devices. It may also be played in USB compatible TV-sets. 

4. DV on External Hard Drive (not included)
The video material is converted to DV codec suitable for computer editing. The customer must provide his own external hard drive with at least 15 GB of space per hour of video captured. If you will not provide your own USB drive, you may purchase one from us by going to "OPTIONS" and add the item "Output to USB hard drive" to your shopping cart.  

PLEASE NOTE:

  • Price is per tape. Maximum length (as priced) is 120 minutes. For longer tapes the price must be increased in two hours increments (i.e. a 150 minutes recording shall be considered as two service items). In such case, only the premium service level is available. We do not offer discounts for partially recorded tapes.
     
  • *Adding several short tapes to the same DVD \ BRD: To initiate such a project you must send the original media for verification along with a detailed editing decision list. Click here to print the verification order form.  No analog consumer tapes have timecode recorded on the tape. Therefore, the time / counter reading on your deck will be different than the one on our machines. We suggest positioning the tape at the beginning of the desired segment and indicate the length of it in minutes and seconds. Please be aware that such projects usually cost more than transferring each tape individually.
     
  • Editing or extensive restoration tasks are not included in this service package. Media with physical damage or which is poorly recorded must be sent for verification. Click here to print the verification order form. 

  • AVRestore reserves the right to refuse originals with objectionable content (sexually explicit, violent, slanderous, defamatory, which invades the privacy of others, etc.).
  • By ordering AVRestore services via website or direct, the customer warrants that he/she has the right to permit AVRestore to perform the services requested on copyrighted materials and takes full responsibility for the transfer.
  • Cancelled orders are subject to shipping, handling and processing fees.
