Video Duplication - Share Your Memories or Your Business

Aug 17, 2007
Whether you want to share the birth of a child with your extended family, or your business environment and philosophy with international client prospects, Video Duplication gives you the ability to replicate your experience or knowledge for your neighbor down the street, or for a prospective investor twelve time zones away.

At one time, of course, video tape was the acme of event capturing media. That time was not as long ago as it may seem. To paraphrase the old saying, the rumors of the video tape's death are highly exaggerated. Millions of video tape-players are still a staple in households and businesses across America. It is estimated that, while the popularity of CD's and DVD's continues to expand, in North America alone nearly 95% of all homes have a VHS player. Also to be considered is that fact that many countries are not yet up to speed with respect to the use of digital media. Even if you, or your company have gone totally digital, look in that entertainment center, or business resource library, and you will be surprised at what you find. Some, if not all of that content is precious and irreplaceable. That being the case, in all likelihood there is information contained on those tapes which you will want or need to share with others, and Video Duplication is the answer.

When considering Video Duplication, format is a significant issue. Over the years, and depending on your location, the tapes may take the form of 1/2'" videocassettes, such as VHS or Betamax, or ¾" videocassettes, such as U-Matic. In addition, there are the following formats to consider: 1", Betacam SP, Digital Betacam, DVC Pro, 3/4", mini DV, Digital 8mm, Hi 8mm, 8mm, S-VHS and VHS-C. Another concern regarding Video Duplication is which of the four international video standards, (NTSC, PAL, PAL-M and SECAM), you are dealing with. While these standards are incompatible with each other at the outset, proper Video Duplication can adjust for these differences, providing you with a converted final version that allows your content to played worldwide. From a personal standpoint, you may have numerous boxes or tin cans filled with older film records, such as regular 8mm, Super 8mm, or 16mm film that you want transferred to video.

Video Duplication is just the beginning. Tapes can be modified or edited to include background music or titles, and they can also be spliced together into longer, custom lengths. Formats can be mixed. Fast, high quality Video Duplication is critical in the business, marketing and promotional arenas, as video is still in widespread use. Compatibility is your goal, as your customer won't watch your presentation if they don't have the capacity to play it

While your Video Duplication provider is not responsible for the quality of submitted film or tape, and the quality of transferred images depends, to a large degree on the quality of the submitted media, it is possible, taking your budget into account, to enhance the quality of the finished product.

You may, of course, have digital media that you wish to duplicate or replicate. Duplication is identical to "burning" CD's or DVD's on your home computer. "Replication" is like "cookie cutting." A glass master, (the "cookie cutter"), is made from the media you supply, and then used to press the information onto replica discs. This process is typically used to make high volume orders more cost effective.

Finally, your finished product can be personalized through the use of specialized discs and packaging. The dazzle of your presentation can be enhanced by the use of colored discs, disc inkjet full color printing or black thermal printing. In packaging your media, superior quality silk-screen and offset printing and packaging are available. You may also want to look into the use of custom printed card sleeves, labels, and plastic case cover inserts.

So, whether your Video Duplication needs are personal or professional; low or high volume; tape to tape, or tape to video, there is a solution to your particular situation.
