A-T Video Services FAQs

1. Do you send any of my film or photos out to be transferred?  NO.  All orders taken are completed on site with no subcontracting.  I take special care to treat your memories like the treasures they are.
 
2. What kind of media can you transfer to DVD?  I can transfer any tape format from Beta, VHS, VHSC, PAL VHS, Hi8, and MiniDVC onto DVD.
 
3. Do I get my tapes back?  Yes.  You receive all of your film and tapes back once they are transferred.
 
4. I have old photos, negatives and slides.  Can they be put on DVD?  Yes.  I convert them to JPEGs and can give them to you on a CD, which will allow you to make prints of them or play it on your computer.  
I can also put them into a slideshow format with music and fading transitions that will play on your DVD player. 

 
5. When you transfer 8mm and Super 8 film to DVD, how many reels will fit on one DVD? A DVD will hold two hours of video.  Up to 1200 feet of 8mm film will fit on one DVD.  That would be 24 of the 3” 50 foot reels. Super 8 films run a little faster and you may get up to 1500 feet of film, or 30 of the 50 foot reels.
 
6. I have old family recordings on cassettes.  Can you transfer these to CD?  Yes.  I am also able, in some cases, to take old reel to reel sound recordings and make CDs of them.
 
7. Photo productions:  Does it matter what size my photos are?  No.  We can use anything from wallet sized to 8x10.  They will appear the same size on your TV.
 
8. Can I mix photos and slides in a production?  Yes.  Photos and slides can be used in any combination.
 
9. Do you take credit cards?  No, but we gladly accept checks.
 
10. Do I need to do anything before I bring you my reels to transfer?  Larger reels have footage markers on the spines of the reel.  See where your film ends, count the footage and do the math.  I am easily able to give you a total cost on your transfer when you bring your film in.  It is helpful if you have them numbered in the order you want them transferred.  

11.
I have old floppy disks from a long gone computer, can you do anything with this? Depending on how they are formatted, i am able to digitize photos or documents and give them to you on a disk that your current computer can read.
