Video tapes are transferred in real-time. As the video is playing the analog video signal is captured and converted to digital video. So a 2 hour video tape would take two hours to be converted into digital. Because VHS video is analog there is no way to transfer the video faster than real-time. Once the video is digital it can be trasfered onto a DVD at the speed of the DVD burner, e.g. 12x 24x or 36x faster than real-time.
When using the StashSpace VHS transfer service the typical turnaround for video transfers is 3-5 business days. All transfers are done in-house at our state of the art video transfer facility in Winthrop WA. To have StashSpace transfer your VHS tapes onto DVD place a video transfer order.
