Do you have a DVD that looks like a regular DVD but won't play in your machine? There's a good chance that the disc you have is in a foreign format, which won't play in American DVD players. Want to send a DVD overseas to a relative or friend? Odds are that the DVD won't work on their player for much the same reason.
ATV Productions℠ provides fast and economical in-house transfers, and we can transfer any DVD from foreign formats (PAL, SECAM or MESECAM) to the American system (NTSC) or from our system to theirs. We can also transfer 8mm, VHS and ¾”. Our equipment is of the highest quality so your video tape conversion will be also.
