Media Transfer Services are based in Redditch, Worcestershire and offer a cost effective way for you to back up your precious memories from deteriorating media sources such as 8mm Cine Film, VHS tape, audio cassette and vinyl.
We transfer vinyl records, minidisk, audio cassette, VHS cassettes reel to reel tape & cine film directly into our state of the art audio/video studio, where we edit and clean (audio restoration) the captured material before transferring it to DVD or Audio CD. We also offer Audio/Data discs too, where your audio recordings can be transferred to CD along with the MP3/MP4 files which you will find in a folder on the same disc. This makes it easy for you to email the audio files to your relatives and friends.
We also offer slide and negative scanning at just 25p per slide/negative!
We can also get pretty much any backing track for the vocalists out there! Just get in touch with your requests.
The CD & DVD discs that we use are of the highest grade. Your finalized discs will be presented with a full colour cover in a DVD/CD case.
If you have old video recordings on VHS tape such as footage of a family holiday, wedding, christening or other home movie, you should consider converting them to DVD so you can play them on your DVD player, while at the same time preserving your cherished memories for future enjoyment.
DVDs take up considerably less space so they are easier to store and send, and they're more durable than VHS cassette tape. Furthermore, DVD recordings are stored digitally rather than the magnetic analogue format of VHS, so they're more versatile and not susceptible to wear and tear when regularly watched.
VHS tape does not last forever. With incorrect storage, heat and humidity have the potential to ruin your treasured memories, rendering them unwatchable and lost forever. Also, if you have a VHS tape that has been chewed up or snapped in your machine, depending on the severity of the tape, we can usually save the tape by repairing it properly.
Transferring your VHS recordings to DVD will bring all those treasured memories back to life. They can all be remastered in a modern digital format with our VHS to DVD service.
We have invested in professional ex BBC equipment to transfer your memories to your desired formats. We do not use consumer VHS players hooked up to a laptop like many other people do. The transfer of your memories only needs to be done once, so why comprimise?
