All the video we convert to DVD, MPEG-1 or the streaming formats is imported into our systems via Firewire (including analogue formats like VHS and cine). This makes for a significant improvement to the quality when compared to other methods. Not everyone takes the time to do this.



Your Videos Or Cine On DVD, CD Or The Net!

Yep, that's right. Video2CD will convert your home or business videos to CD or DVD format for a lot less than you think. Prices start at an incredibly low £25 per hour for conversion of videotape to MPEG-1 and £35 for conversion to DVD including menus and custom text. And that's all inclusive. Of postage too. Absolutely No Extra Charges.

A lot of our "competition" use direct conversion cards to produce MPEG-2 (DVD format). Did you know this can reduce the quality of the finished product by a whopping 20% to 50%?

Video2CD also specialises in converting cien and video to any of the streaming formats. If you need Windows Media, RealVideo or QuickTime then you've come to the right place.

What Tape Formats Can Video2CD Convert From?

VHS, S-VHS, VHS-C, Mini-DV. (PAL or NTSC), & Hi-8, Video 8. & Digital 8 (PAL Only). Unlike some of our "competition" we can accept Mini-DV tapes that were recorded in LP format. Frankly the quality isn't as good as a tape recorded in SP format, but we can do it!

Other formats

We can convert from other tape formats by arrangement. Generally speaking you'd be looking at an extra £10 per hour. This also increases the turnaround time by 3 to 4 days. Please ask for a quotation[1] because we're increasing our repertoire all the time.


About Formats

The format you should choose should depend on what you're going to use your video for.

If it's going to be used on the web, for example, then WMV (Windows Media Video) or RealVideo would probably be best, but if you want the highest possible quality, then MPEG-2 on DVD would be the one to go for.

If you need advice about the format that's most appropriate for your application, then don't hesitate to contact us at Video2CD.

Other Services

We can also convert between Mini-DV and VHS, S-VHS, S-VHS-C and VHS-C tape formats (NTSC/PAL). Also from SECAM (an evil French format) to PAL or NTSC, but not from PAL or NTSC to SECAM. This can be very useful if you want to convert your existing video collection into digital format with the minimum hassle.
