"In 1950 my grandfather gave an Armistice Day speech that was broadcast over a local radio station. That station provided him with a 16” transcription of that speech. Due to its fragility and the warning that it would deteriorate significantly after just a few playings, to my knowledge it was never played. I checked locally and there was no one who could handle the 16” record. I did, however, receive a referral to your company. The quality of the CD transfer you provided was amazing. As my grandfather died one week after I was born, your company made it possible for me to hear his voice for the first time. Thank you CVC Productions for making this happen. "

I don't know the length of my video tape

Most people do not know the length of their tapes. This is not a problem. Make your selection based on a reasonable guess. When we get your tape at our studio we will determine the exact length and charge the correct amount based on our current prices. Even if you picked the wrong length, the DVD will be made for the correct length and will be priced correctly. We will transfer (and charge) for the amount of time that the video tape is RECORDED. We do not transfer (and charge) for what is left unrecorded on the video tape (blank tape, static and hiss). If the video tape is longer than you selected, we will transfer (and charge) for the entire recorded tape.

Based on your reasonable estimate, please click one of the lengths above.
