Video Encoding

VHS to DVD Conversion
Copying VHS tape to DVD is the most common tape transfer that we undertake at Media Matters Technology - send us your VHS tape and we can professionally transfer the content to a DVD for you. Video encoding is the important step that will determine whether the image output is of good or bad quality. Not all video is the same, and Media Matters Technology understand the variety of formats and specifications, ensuring your image output is of the best quality possible. We can convert from many legacy formats, and output formats include: AVI, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4, Quicktime MOV and WMF.
