Absolute Highest Quality
For each of the formats we transfer we have a variety of decks to choose from. For VHS for example, we have over 30 different professional decks (rather than the single consumer deck you may find elsewhere). Also, depending on the tape brand, condition and the camera that it was recorded in, one deck will provide better results over another. We will use the best deck for your tape. Hence, you end up with a better result.
Right Equipment for your Videotape
DVD Infinity were the first company in Australia to provide professional consumer and corporate video to DVD transfers and later video to Bluray disc. When we started the business, we had to import the equipment, explain what a DVD was and sell our own players. Since then, we have transferred enough video tape that if unravelled and placed one after the other would stretch around the circumference of the Earth.
For you, this means more experience than any other company and a better quality result.

More Video Formats Transferred
Over 90% of consumer video has blanks, static and gaps as well as areas where the camera cap has been left on, or the camera has been facing the ground. This appears throughout the video. We eliminate it to provide a substantially better quality result.
We cut blanks, static and areas where the camera cap was left on, or the camera was facing the ground. By cutting out the bits that absolutely nobody wants, the viewing experience is substantially enhanced. We add event chapter points (eg. where the footage changes from a children's birthday to a ski trip) for easy searching. We pay attention to ensure that tapes spanning multiple discs do not cut mid event (ie in the middle of children blowing out birthday candles or a couple taking their wedding vows). We create a high quality personalised disc and cover with a title of your choice. Something that you will want to pass down from one generation to the next. You can transfer multiple tapes per disc if desired. You benefit by having something you will want to watch again and again.
You can even design your own artwork (to our specifications) and for a minimal extra cost we can print up a disc and cover that will be at the same quality as one you find in Blockbuster or Video Ezy.
Not just a Transfer Mill - Your VideoTransferred Properly
We transfer your Video to DVD, Bluray, USB hard drives, flash drives, SD cards, Compact Flash and any other modern media. However, optical disc (including Bluray) still provides best options for preservation.
We output to almost any file format including AVI, MOV, MP4 and many others.

People Trust DVD Infinity
Why shouldn’t I just use one of those video converters or recorders or another company to transfer my video footage?
DVD Infinity don't just copy video tapes to disc. There are a number of differences between our video to disc transfer and other methods of transferring your video footage.
- We use Broadcast Playback and Optimisation Equipment which means
- Better transport mechanisms result in higher quality video signal
- Images picked up better, especially on poor quality video
- No lost images due to dropouts
- Images stabilised
- Noise reduction techniques employed
- Removal of wiggling, rippling effect on older videos
- Reduction of snowy effect from degrading video signal
- Correction of colour shift on degrading video
- Cleans up dirty signals on worn video
- No damage to your video tapes
- We select the best deck for your tapes
a. We have many different decks. Depending on the brand of tape & original recording device, the way it was recorded and the state of the tape, one deck may play your tape better than others. We use the best deck for your tape.
- We use Broadcast Quality analogue to digital conversion which means
- Better quality algorithm results in a better quality video signal
- We remove footage absolutely nobody wants
- Removal of blanks and static
- Removal of where camera cap was left on
- Removal of where camera is facing the ground for long periods
- We add event chapter markers
a. Adding bookmarks at each change of event rather than every X minutes, a set number per disc or not at all.
- We use Hollywood grade compression and that means
- Truer Colours - poorer compression results in lost colour
- Truer Lighting and contrast – poorer compression results in lost contrast and lighting
- Better images in panning and zooming – poorer compression results is freezing, jagged edges, ghosting
- We use highest quality professional thermal printers and professional designs
- Providing a professional finish on your discs and covers - lower quality varnished inkjet prints lead to cracked discs later on
- We are experts at tape recovery and can rescue the contents of tapes that have the following issues:
- Broken, twisted or snapped video tapes
- Sticky tapes where the binding is coming off
- Smoke or heat effected tapes
- Video tapes that have been in floodwater (if we receive them quick enough)
We have a suite of video recovery tools including a professional tape baking oven at our disposal. In addition, all tapes are pretensioned and rewound before using to avoid unnecessary wear.
We are professionals in video tape transfers and do not put more than 100 minutes on a single disc (for Bluray 150 - 300 mins) to ensure that quality is not diminished. We maintain your video in its native format. We could transfer your Australian/International (PAL) format video to American (NTSC) format to make it work all around the world. However, this would severely reduce the quality(from 625 lines for PAL to only 525 lines for NTSC), and also means that your disk would not be 100% compatible with all TVs in Australia.
The DVD Infinity Quality Difference
There are now other operators who are starting to offer low quality automated video to DVD. These low quality discs may seem attractive until you start to look at them carefully. They reduce the quality of your footage in a number of ways. They do not optimise the input video signal or the compression onto the disc, losing precious quality from your work. They use consumer grade equipment instead of professional equipment, losing more quality. They do not cut out blanks and static, nor the inherent bad takes (such as when the camera cap was left on or the camera was shooting feet because someone forgot to switch it off). Instead of creating meaningful chapter points (to allow you to jump where you want to jump) you end up with no chapter points or with meaningless points generated by a computer every X minutes. They then output to cheap and nasty quality discs which will cause you problems on playback and may only last a few years. Most of these operators use low quality consumer equipment (such as automated recorders, consumer decks, video to disc recorders), severely robbing you of the quality you deserve. You risk losing your precious memories. Beware as you will only get what you pay for. The difference can be even more evident in Bluray productions150 - 300 mins) to ensure that quality is not diminished. We maintain your video in its native format. We could transfer your Australian/International (PAL) format video to American (NTSC) format to make it work all around the world. However, this would severely reduce the quality(from 625 lines for PAL to only 525 lines for NTSC), and also means that your disk would not be 100% compatible with all TVs in Australia.
