Turnaround time to Digitize VHS depends upon:

  1. How much video is recorded on the VHS tape. Tapes length can be 2, 4, or even up to 6 hours. The videotape is played in real time, producing an analog signal to the VHS player output.
  2. The quality of each frame as well as the overall content, including audio levels. Eliminating trailing blank tape and ‘border flutter’ adds another 10-15 minutes.
  3. The computer power available to export the edited video to its final format that can be copied to a USB or a DVD. Editing can take an additional 10 minutes if sufficient computer power and software expertise is available.
  4. The size of the video which determines the time to copy to a USB or to cut the DVD.
  5. Employee efficiency, computer power, and current workload if using a professional service. Turnaround time can be a few days to a few months.
