At TechHelp Ottawa, we do video digitizing the right way! We use only the best equipment available such as high quality digital Mini-DVD cameras that are compatible with the North American NTSC format.

We have also invested heavily in state-of-the-art computer software for digitally capturing Mini-DVD content for conversion to MP4 video files. There is an additional fee for digital capture of high definition (HD) content.

MP4 files can be edited for audio and video properties. Just ask us.

NOTE: Sound restoration techniques can be applied to video files converted from VHS, 8mm Camcorder and Mini-DV tapes. This is particularly effective in reducing consistent background noise such as fans, air conditioners and hum, and in enhancing voices. Visit this page on our website.

Frequently Asked Questions

• The viewer chooses from one menu item at the beginning of the DVD.

• Since the DVD is imbedded with chapter markers, the "Skip" button on the remote control can be used to navigate forward at equal-intervals of 5 or 10 minutes. "Fast Forward" and "Rewind" buttons can also be used to to navigate through content.

• This method copies the entire VHS tape from beginning to end — blank spots and all — just like the original!

We use the best equipment available to ensure the best quality possible. We caution, however, that most video camera tapes are STANDARD DEFINITION (SD) producing a picture in a 4 X 3 aspect ratio (like with older TVs).

NOTE: Some Mini DV tapes produce high definition images with an aspect ratio of 16 X 9 (compatible with new HD widescreen TVs).
Yes, we can edit your Mini-DV tape content, but additional fees will apply. Please ask us in advance about editing your VHS content.

NOTE: Sound restoration techniques can be applied to MP4 video files as well. This is particularly effective in reducing consistent background noise such as fans, air conditioners and hum, and in enhancing voices. Ask us to explain.
We use only the best equipment such as a state-of-the art high definition Canon ´┐╝Vixia HV30 Digital Camcorder, Sony Hi8 Camcorder, Mac computers and advanced movie editing software.

Tips For Better Service

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT that tapes are accurately labelled and organized. This helps us to properly label the resulting video files.
To make things easier for us, and to ensure that your video files contain the exact content desired, please fast forward each video camera tape to the point where content ends. When we receive your tape, we will set the counter to 000, rewind the tape to the beginning, and then record the tape until it reaches that 000 point again. Otherwise, we will have no idea of the length of your tapes.
It is very helpful when you can indicate to us the length of each tape.
