Archive your mobile videos on a Platinum DVD with Home Video Studio

We all know that when you and your family get together with friends over the holidays you will enjoy watching those old home movies and tapes. Many of you have had us put your tapes and movies on a Platinum Archival DVD which makes it really easy and fun. 

We also know we're now in the digital media age. Here's a question: Do you know where your precious memories from this year's holiday events are?

You took that cool video of the kids on your iPhone. You snapped the perfect picture on your digital camera. You shot precious video footage of Grandpa on your flip camera. Now where are they? Still sitting in your phone? On a camera in your glove box? On your computer? Most likely everything you shot or filmed during the holidays is in danger (just a click or crash away) from being destroyed, stolen or lost because the digital age is also the dangerous age - for our memories. Don't let them become "Dust in the Wind!"

Did you know that if your phone gets wet or dropped those memories may be lost forever?! Sometimes they can be retrieved, but often they cannot! What if your digital camera or flip camera gets stolen or lost? What if your laptop hard drive crashes?

DON'T LOSE YOUR PRECIOUS MEMORIES! Home Video Studio can back up the pictures and videos from all of your portable devices on a Platinum 100 Year Archival DVD! We can back up your lap top as well. Be a saver of your family's archives! Don't wait till your mobile device is dropped or stolen. If you lose your phone you lose your memories.

Plus Home Video Studio's archival process offers easy access to your pictures and videos for printing, posting (Facebook/youtube/etc.) or just viewing with friends and family on your PC or DVD.
It's a great age we live in - the digital age! Digital cameras and smart phones make documenting the important things in your life easy and rewarding - Home Video Studio makes protecting those memories a cinch with our Platinum Archival DVDs!

It's also a great time to relive your older memories with friends and family. Home Video Studio makes projecting those memories really easy! Ask about putting your old movies, videotapes and photos into a Lifetime DVD Keepsake with music and titles today! 

We're only a click or call away. 

Call us today! 559-732-3050 / 866-993-8348

That will bring a smile to our faces and to yours!

The more thought you put into this gift the better it will be. Call us today and let's get started putting your memories onto Platinum Archival DVDs for the ultimate Holiday Gift!

This is VAMA!

Visalia Anesthesia Medical Associates (VAMA). This is the unit that served the Kaweah Delta Health Care District with Anesthesia services and had been for over 16 years. The Director of VAMA, Dr. Walter Walters, had me create this video to present at their RFP (Refer For Proposal) to the hospital committee and Board of Directors. Even after powerful testimonials by many of the lead surgeons of the hospital, it was decided by the Board to go with a lower cost national anesthesia provider.

Home Video Studio is a very busy place these days. If you look you'll see Mrs. Crenshaw bringing in shoeboxes of photos and memorabilia. Mr. Weiss is right behind her with several pieces of his son's favorite music. And why is Mrs. Johnson smiling so big while dabbing her eyes with a tissue? Oh yeah, it's Graduation Photo Video Keepsake time!

And the best part? You'll have a blast from start to finish! First you'll get to go through your grad's photos to select your favorites. Then you'll choose their favorite music (and maybe some of your favorites, too). Then you'll have to think of something to say in an opening or closing title. The whole time you'll be bursting with pride thinking of your child's accomplishment and then you get to watch it!

Video to DVD transfer - How long does it take?

Time is what we want most, but... what we use worst. ~William Penn

Video tapes are transferred in real-time.
As the video is playing the analog video signal is captured and converted to digital video. So a 2 hour video tape would take two hours to be converted into digital.
The VHS video is analog there is no way to transfer the video faster than real-time.
Once the video is digital it can be transferred onto a DVD at the speed of the DVD burner,
e.g. 12x 24x or 36x faster than real-time.

Learn More, Click Here:

We can transfer all of these formats to digital for you!

Thank you and have a great day!

Spring is DVD time for your young artist or performer

Your kids have practiced all year! Now its spring, a busy time for children's recitals, performances and presentations. Your grandkids have been rehearsing for months! Just think. You have school musicals, dance recitals, instrument recitals and school concerts. Now, before the curtain rises, make sure you're prepared to capture these once-in-a-lifetime events on video. And after the applause call us to help you present these performances on a silver platter.

Once you've captured the performance on tape here's how we can help:

First of all, let's get the content you have videoed transferred to DVD. Video transfers are our specialty!
Maybe you want to bundle several performances together onto one DVD. Has your child performed recitals or in programs over the years? What if you put them all on one DVD with titles depicting each year?
How about a snappy label with a photograph? Wouldn't a custom menu look great?
Would a portion of this performance be perfect in a PhotoKeepsake of your loved one?
Is your young artist is competing or vying for a scholarship? All the more reason to call us! More and more decision makers are relying on video submissions as a first step in any competition or scholarship. Your artists will be steps ahead with a well produced, edited video that showcases their skills.

And remember. If you want a professional shooting of a performance we can do that too! We have the experience and equipment to deliver high quality video and audio, and we will incorporate your input into our shooting style. Do you envision more than one camera combining different camera angles and placements? Your imagination is the limit as we shoot and produce these one time events!

The young people in your life spend countless hours preparing to perform. Make sure it is enjoyed for years to come! Call us today!
