Service Charge: The conversion of video media to digital formats incurs considerably higher setup and overhead costs than the digitization of still photographic media. Consequently, for video services we have to add a Service Charge, calculated on a sliding scale, for smaller orders. This charge is applied to orders only if the total conversion charges for an order (combined for movie film and video tape) are between $10.00 and $49.00. To emphasize: this Service Charge applies ONLY to movie film and video tape orders, but NOT to any of our other services.

At the lower limit of order size, $10.00, the Service Charge is $20.00; but it is reduced to $0.00 when the overall conversion charges for tape and movie film reach or exceed $50.00. So, as an example, for an order where the conversion charges are $20.00, the Service Charge will be $15.00; for a $30.00 order, the SC would drop to $10.00. When the conversion charges are $50.00 or more, the Service Charge no longer applies.

The following Table shows examples how these charges are applied:

 Conversion Charge  Service Charge  Total Cost
$10.00 $20.00 $30.00
$15.00 $17.50 $32.50
$20.00 $15.00 $35.00
$25.00 $12.50 $37.50
$30.00 $10.00 $40.00
$40.00 $5.00 $45.00
$50.00 $0.00 $50.00


Delivery Times: As noted elsewhere on this website, our normal delivery time for all "still" photographic conversion work (slides, negatives, photos etc.) is usually two weeks or less. For Videos and Movie film, however, the delivery time can run longer; it can be two - four weeks. If your order includes both still photography and video tapes/movie reels, it is possible that the still photo conversion process may be completed before the video portion.

If that happens, we will contact you and give you the choice of having your order divided, in which case we will bill and ship the finished portion of your order, and then when the movies/tapes conversion files have been completed, we will bill and ship them (along with your original materials, of course) when they are completed.

So, resurrect your old, obsolete video tape media. Just fill out a Request Form In most cases, we can turn your materials around in just 14-28 days!
