Q6: Do you post back recorded delivery the DVD and the original tape?

Hi there, yes the tape and disc are returned to you , unless you request only the disc.

We usually use first class mail , unless the listing specifies a lesser service. Special Delivery is available, please enquire for costing.

Q7: Do you combine several videos onto DVD's.

We can do so if requested. Ideally this is only done when the supplied material does not exceed a run time of 2 hours in total. The rate remains the same however as the costing is based on studio time rather than blank discs. We can squeeze more onto a single DVD but this is not recommended for visual quality.

We also can combine cine films into fewer DVD's which is common as they have a shorter run time. Approximately 1600 ft can comfortably fit onto 1 DVD
