Video Transfers
and Conversions
Videotape Direct Transfer to DVD*: consumer analog videotapes degrade over
time (life expectancy is ten to twenty years, depending on how they are cared for

sound can overlap causing multiple-imaging and sound during playback.

be transferred directly to DVD.  Copyrighted videotapes may only be transferred
when you or Kalton Communications owns the copyright.
