Save your memories!

Video and audio tapes are just a Mylar strip coated with a ferrous oxide, and have a maximum estimated lifetime of less than twenty years! That means the video your parents took of you graduating high school is in serious danger of signal degradation (at the very least.) And the cassette tape of your recital? Pretty much gone by now, probably.

Legal and medical professionals can benefit from this services as well, preserving trascriptions and case notes.

Save those precious recordings by converting the originals to a digital format.

Please Note:

  • All of our conversion packages that make use of compact disc or DVD use Lightscribe labeling and are returned in a windowed paper sleeve.
  • Audio CDs are limited to a maximum of 70 minutes. A conversion that has, for example, 71 minutes of audio, will require two discs.
  • Audio CDs can be created as either audio (toss it in a CD player and listen) or an MP3 collection (for play on a PC or MP3 compatible device)
  • DVDs are limited to two hours of video for each single-sided disc, four hours for double sided. A double-sided disc counts as two.
  • Video discs can be created either as DVD Video (toss it in a DVD player and watch) or as a collection of AVI video files (for editing)
  • Prices shown are for a single copy.

Video Editing

How does it work?

Video editing is complex and time-consuming, let Map's Edge Media quickly and professionally edit for you! Send us your video footage and we will turn it into a high-quality movie. Available for home movies, corporate training films, product highlight videos, the possibilities are endless.

You answer a few questions about your video and send us your tapes: we'll even send you a shipping box. We can correct shaky footage (if it's not too shaky), throw out unusable footage, pick the best scenes, add music, titles, credits and special effects to create the perfect custom movie.

When your edited movie is finished you can preview it online before we send your custom DVDs. We'll also transfer your originals to DVD.

Our affordable video editing services don't just save you time, they create lasting memories and great impressions.
