When you place an order with us, a pre-paid shipping package will be sent to you the same day. The package will contain all shipping materials needed to insure the safe delivery and return of your video and new DVD, including a magnetic shielding envelop to protect the tape(s) from accidental erasure. Then you just package all materials into the shipping box, including the video, photographs, negatives and slides for the DVD and send it to us.

Also, to ensure that the layout of the DVD is "exactly" as you want it, a "Story Board" sheet is included with the shipping materials so that you can detail exactly how the DVD video footage will be arranged, including transitions, additional audio and opening and ending titles.

Your DVD will then be compiled and shipped back to you within 7 Business days from the day we received your package, with all materials sent to us.

The Premium DVD gives you the best of the Basic DVD and the best of the Enhanced DVD. You get to customize all of you chapter locations, buttons and background. Once you give us your tape we will encode your video into our computers and, with your help, find a scene that best captures the mood of you video. We will then capture 30 seconds of the scene and use if for the background for all your menus. We then go through the video, and at every point chosen for a chapter button, we will capture a 15 second loop that will be used for full motion thumbnail chapter buttons. Alternatively, along with the custom chapters you could select a custom still thumbnail image to identify that chapter. And because we know that with every video of an important event, there are usually, hundreds of still pictures taken, you also get a slide show selection of 30 of you favorite pictures, slides or negatives, or stills from the video.

  Up to two hours of video footage.

You may be curious why we have 2 sets of pricing for our DVD products. Most likely, your Home Movies have been shot on analog consumer video cameras. Our production facility is geared up to handle virtually every type of consumer video media (above). However, we also have substantial capabilities for professionally produced video productions (network productions, corporate video, Professional Videographer Productions, etc.). While every tape we receive gets processed through our Hollywood Quality DVD systems, professional grade tapes must be handled on different tape playing equipment. For example, the tape decks we use to play professional DVCAM tapes costs up to 10 times what our high quality 8mm tape decks cost. The higher prices for professional media types reflects the higher costs associated with processing these formats.
