Dubs

VHS dubs:  These are made one at a time onto our professional wide-head Panasonic editing deck with normal and Hi-Fi stereo audio tracks.  DV Post's in-house tape dubbing charges are based on the length of the program in minutes, divided by 60, times our hourly dubbing rate (currently $30.00), plus the materials.  There is a $5.00 minimum labor charge for videos under 10 minutes.

DVD dubs from a DVD:  This is done on the PC side of DV Post.  First a disk image file is made from your DVD.  The first copy is $8.00.  Additional copies of the same DVD are then $5.00.  DVDs are packaged in slim jewel cases.  Amaray album boxes or full face printing is extra.

DVDs (authored) made from a video:  Your video must be in the DVCAM, Mini-DV, or the VHS format.  If not, we must first have it converted at another facility.  When your video is on one of the formats we can use, there is a one time digitizing charge of $50/hour, billed by your video program length.  If significant editing is required, then the normal editing rate of $75/hour applies.  If significant DVD Authoring is required then that rate of $65/hour will apply.  When DV Post has edited your program, all DVDs are $5.00 each including the disc.

Blu-Ray DVDs:  These are great when you have a short program that you want to display in High Definition.  They take a much longer time for the HDV video to be converted to the files used on Blu-Ray discs.  (About 8 times longer than SD DVDs)  At this time (2011) it is impractical to make a long-from video in HD.  But fairly short programs under 15 minutes are great for Blu-Ray.  When DV Post has edited your program, Blu-Rays are $10.00 each including the disc.  We do not offer duplication of Blu-Ray discs.

DVDs (real time) made from video:  This is a faster way to make very simple DVDs in real time from VHS and other video formats.  A basic menu is generated by the DVD recoding machine.  Up to 4 hours of video can be recorded on one DVD-R, but that is not recommended.  When more than 2 hours are put on a DVD, the quality suffers.  The rate for this is $20/hour based on the program length, with a $20 minimum.  The disc is an additional $3.00.

DVD dubs from memory cards:  A newer service at DV Post that uses the Sony VRDMC6 Burner.  The rate for this is $20/hour based on the program length, with a $20 minimum.  The DVD-R disc is an additional $3.00.  Supported cards are Memory Stick PRO™, Memory Stick Pro Duo™, Secure Digital (SD/SDHC) and xD cards.

Audio CDs from Audio Cassettes:  The rate for this service is $60/hour based on the actual running time, with a $20 minimum.  The disc is an additional $1.25.  A CD is limited to about 1 hour.  The tape is played into the computer, an audio file is created, trimmed, and then mastered onto a CD-R.    If extensive editing of the audio is required, then additional charges will apply.  After the first CD is made, additional copies are $5.00 each including the CD-R.
