What about that box of old 8mm films from your Grandmother's garage? What do you do with them all? Well bring those old tapes & film reels down to Pro-Tape, and well transfer them on to High Quality DVD or CD at an affordable price.

What about old broadcast formats? We can do those too!

Turnaround Time

Turnaround times vary. Video tapes transfers are all done in real time. We do each job in the order in which they are recieved. Therefore, your turnaround time will depend upon:

1. The number of jobs before yours.
2. The duration of the tapes before your job (20 two hour videos tapes = 40 hours of transfer time!)

We will provide you with our best estimate at the time you drop off. But please understand, this is only an estimate. If you need your transfers by a certain date please let us know at the time of drop off. We will work with you as best we can to meet your needs.

Smaller jobs of 1 or 2 tapes can often be completed quickly.
