A video to DVD or CD transfer service called YesVideo is now available nationwide for professional and trade users. Just launched in the UK, this fully automated conversion takes about half the time and is approximately half the cost of typical high street offerings. In addition, YesVideo is the only service to divide recorded material into 54 chapters for quick and easy reference.

Tape can begin to degrade in as little as five years, even if unplayed. Digital capture is the only means of ensuring it will last a lifetime. YesVideo provides the UK’s first ever volume, automated, mail order conversion service, and accepts a wide range of media including VHS, S-VHS, VHS-C, Mini-DV, Digital8 (D8), Hi-8, 8mm and DVCAM, with further formats to be added shortly. YesVideo outputs to one or all of three fully digitized and authored formats – YesDVD, YesCD and YesPIX, all playable universally on PCs, Macs and Home Players. Orders are fulfilled within five working days and prices start at £20 plus VAT and delivery. Holders of videotape archives are advised to begin converting as soon as possible in order to halt irrevocable degradation of material.
