When our VCR ate the tape of my son's first year I was disappointed. Thanks for fixing the VHS tape and converting all my tapes to DVD so this won't happen again. You made my day.

So why use Chroma Services?

  • 100% professional digital

    VHS, SVHS (S-VHS, Super VHS) or Betamax (Beta Hi-Fi and SuperBeta) to DVD conversion transfer using only the best video conversion equipment.

  • The transfer is done by a skilled technician and not by an automated computer system.
  • Full motion DVD menus with motion thumbnail images taken from the beginning of each chapter for easy navigation.
  • Top quality genuine Taiyo Yuden DVD-R media (compatible with 99% of DVD players) is used with new WaterSheild technology which repels water and protects from wear and scratches.
  • DVD Amaray case (full DVD case similar to Hollywood store bought cases and NOT a paper sleeve or jewel case).
  • Cover insert and DVD label

No cheap stand-alone recorder can provide all this!  If you are still not convinced then send us your VHS or Beta tape and we will convert a short 1 minute preview clip of the tape.  You can examine the scene and make your decision afterwards.

In essence if you wanted minor editing for a 2 hour VHS tape with a custom menu and 1 extra copy it would be: $20 for straight copy ($10 x 2 hours) + $10 for minor editing + $5 for custom menu + $10 copy = $45.  You can also mix and match services so 1 tape can have the minor editing as described above while another tape can just be a straight $10 copy.  If you still have any questions please contact us for a personalized quote.

Sending us your Tapes

When sending us your VHS tapes please make sure to properly package them in a box in bubble wrap and try to avoid using packing popcorn. Also shipping using a tracking number is highly advisable. Please do not use UPS ground as their Rates for Customs Clearance into Canada are excessive compared to other couriers. If you can, please use the United States Postal Service's ground shipping as their rates are the most reasonable. To make processing your order easier please label your tapes and include detailed instructions on what services are being performed on which tapes. Turnaround time is about 1 week from the time we receive your tapes but large orders may take longer.  Once the conversions have been finished we will notify you and provide a return tracking number. Rush orders are also available but are subject to a 15% fee.  If you have any questions at all do not hesitate to Contact Us.

So why DVDs?

  • No rewinding!
  • There is no magnetic coating that can wear away with each use, which is the case with tapes. 
  • Menus and chapter points (bookmarks) allow you to skip to certain scenes instantly. 
  • Quick forward/backward scanning and searching.
  • DVDs take up less space than VHS tapes. 
  • Since a DVD is digital, any copies are exactly the same as the original with no loss of quality! 
  • A DVD can be put into a computer so that you can capture still scenes for printing photos. 
  • Zoom-in features (if your DVD player supports it) 
  • If handled properly (like a CD), a DVD can last over 100 years! 
  • For the reasons above and many more, DVDs are becoming the mainstream, and VHS is becoming obsolete.

Don’t let your memories slip away. Transfer VHS to DVD, S-VHS or VHS-C, Beta to DVD and have them preserved for a lifetime!
