Videotape to DVD Transfers


They say we learn from history, and if history has taught us one thing, it’s that leg warmers are not really as fashionable as people think they are. Remember this and other nostalgic fashion miststeps with a glimpse into your past. While those VHS memories might be something you’d rather forget, your fade and your fads should never be lost.

We transfer from all tape formats to DVD, including Video8, Hi-8, Digital 8, VHS, Betacam, Betamax, VHS-C, ¾”, and Mini-DV.

Video Production for Web and Broadcast


Advanced Video Systems’ most popular service is web video production. More and more, companies need to engage their customers through social media. Research indicates that companies that use video on their website homepage experience a higher rate of new customer conversions.

They know the value of professionally produced videos that introduce their customers to the products or services they provide. They understand that the return on investment pays off when people visit their websites and are greeted by a video. They realize that online video instantly captivates and familiarizes their customers with their product or service.
