Transfers from Devices
If getting pictures, recordings or video off of your personal device (phone or tablet) is confusing, fear not, we can help. Bring us your device and we'll pull the image, sound and video files and put them on media you can share (Flash drive or DVD), and if necessary convert them to universal formats. We can even fix vertical videos so they don't play sideways on your TV!

Legacy Digital Transfer Delivery Options
All of our digital transfer services give you digital files (audio or video) that we deilver on Flash drive. We create a professional-format "capture" file and then convert it to a consumer-level compressed file for your use. We offer a discount if you only want the professional, 1st generation transfer file. For the release drive, you can provide a drive of sufficient size, or purchase one from us. DVD or CD delivery is also available. For set-top-playable disks, a fee for "authoring" the disk is additional, and options including menus, chapter points and repeat play options are available. Up to 2 hours of SD video will fit on a DVD. Up to 74 minutes of audio can fit on a CD.
