Surely this image looks familar to many, though good old VHS video tape is already a relic from the past. Very few people these days would record their videos onto VHS and even purchasing a good VHS video player is becoming an increasingly difficult task.
National Video Centre can help you transferring your precious memories from VHS to DVD and other digital formats for preservation purposes, or simply for convenience. DVD is a lot easier to navigate than a video tape.
Standard, single layer DVD holds up to 2 hours of video. VHS tapes are available in various lengths for up to 300 minutes, which doubles in a LP (or a long play) mode. While most of tapes we get from clients are not fully recorded, we sometimes get 3 and 4 hours of footage on a single VHS tape, with an odd one running for 8 hours or more.
While it is generally posiible to compress the video while capturing your video footage and fit over 2 hours onto a standard DVD, it is not recommended, as higher than standard compression results in reduced video quality. If your tape runs for over 2 hours we recommend making more than one DVD from the same tape or using a dual layer disc.
