video transfer prices

Our pricing for video transfer is based on the actual recorded length per tape, plus the output cost. We will determine the actual length after trimming off any blank footage at the beginning and end of the tape. However, we will not trim out any blank footage, static, or TV commercials in the middle of recordings. We are willing to do such edits, but it will be for an additional pro-rated hourly cost. Eliminating this from our normal service keeps our process efficient and affordable.
