LaserDisc specific issues

bullet

Turning from LaserDisc side A to side B

bullet

In order to keep the cost down, we use automated side changing. The screen goes black for a few seconds while the sides are changed. If this short pause is objectionable, it can be eliminated.  In order to do that, we must treat each side of the LaserDisc as a separate "source" (at $10 for each additional source). To accomplish that, on the order form, select an "Additional Source" for $10. Also, in the Special Instructions box of the order form tell us to eliminate the pause between sides.
   

bullet

Still Frame LaserDiscs and Interactive LaserDiscs

bullet

Regular LaserDisc transfer prices are for LaserDiscs that play continuously (without operator intervention) from beginning to end. Still Frame and Interactive LaserDiscs require operator intervention for each chapter stop (LaserDisc playback stops) or prompt (LaserDisc playback stops and requires operator intervention). There is no "automated" way of converting this type of LaserDiscs to DVD. Addressing by "frames" (recalling individual frame numbers with frame accuracy), while it was possible in the LaserDisc format, is not possible in the DVD format. There is no direct DVD equivalent for an interactive LaserDisc.

bullet

We can transfer to DVD an interactive LaserDisc, and the still frames will still be viewable on the DVD (by using the "Pause" function, followed by "Next Frame", etc.). The difference is that the automatic stop of the LaserDisc will not be preserved (DVD viewer will have to press "Pause") and the frames can not be accessed by frame number (as DVDs can not go to a specified frame number).

bullet

For this type of transfer, we charge our "Hourly Studio Rate" (currently $115 per hour). On an average, cost is the total length of LaserDisc x 1.5 x Studio Rate. Example: a 1-hour Interactive LaserDisc takes 1.5 hours to produce and costs $172.50. Once we receive your LaserDisc and determine the length of the disc and complexity of the structure we will provide a detailed quote.
   

bullet

 Karaoke LaserDiscs

bullet

We do not specialize in Karaoke conversions.  However, we may still be able to convert some Karaoke LaserDiscs.  We will have to produce a separate DVD for each sound track selected (one DVD for full soundtrack, one DVD for no vocals).   
   

bullet

LaserDiscs with alternate soundtracks

bullet

We are not able to produce a DVD with multiple audio tracks.  What we do (and is more cost efficient than re-engineering a DVD with multiple sound tracks) is to make separate DVD's for each version of the LD: One DVD with the main soundtrack, another DVD with the alternate soundtrack.  Some LaserDiscs have two separate soundtracks on the two Stereo channels: one soundtrack on the Left channel, one soundtrack on the Right channel.  We are able to convert to DVD exactly in the same configuration.  It will be then up to you to separate the channels on your own playback equipment.
   

Very Frequently Asked Question:

DVD transfer length  I am not sure the exact length of the tape.  How can I order?
Answer:  If you do not know the length of the tape, it is not a problem. It is important that you familiarize yourself with our pricing structure.  Place the order based on your best estimate.  In the "Special Instructions" box of the Order Form, tell us to "make DVD of the correct length for the tape".  We will determine the length of the tape before we make the DVD and will make the DVD of the appropriate length. After we make the DVD we will run the Order Form again and charge the correct rate, depending on the actual length.  In this type of situation it is best to use a Credit Card for payment in order that we do not have to hold your order.
Editing DVD's  Will I be able to edit video from your DVD's?
Answer:  We do not encrypt our DVD's.  You may be able to import video directly from the Video DVD's if your video editing software can import video from DVD's. If in doubt, order our Test Video DVD.   Alternatively, you may order a Data DVD Copy. The Data DVD Copy is specially produced in a very high quality and highly compatible format: MPEG-4.  ATTENTION: we do not provide any technical support, warranties or assistance for editing the Video or Data DVD's we produce. Please read complete info about the Data DVD Copies.

For more answers, please see ANSWERS.

NOTE:
Please try to make sure you send us tapes in formats we support, and in working condition.  If we set up to record a tape and it turns out the tape is in the wrong format or blank or damaged or unsuited for producing a DVD, we will not make a DVD.  Instead, we will charge a "Setup Fee" of $14.25 plus return shipping and return the tape unprocessed.

Customer Comments - LaserDisc

* * Christmas came a little late this year but sure was worth it. I had thought that I had lost this concert disc forever as my laser disc player gave up the ghost and I did not want to repair it. I had checked to see if this concert had been released on dvd but it had not and no plans to, a new vhs tape of it would have cost $100. I found CVC on the web your info looked promising and I crossed my fingers and sent the laser disc in. I got it back quickly, played it, no problem and was treated to the best xmas gift of the year. Thanks for saving this concert for me and I'll surely be back. I highly reccomend your work, Thanks. *

* Hi Cristian, Thanks for returning my Laserdisc & DVD – it is a great conversion and wonderful to see this show after so long. Great value and quick service. Many thanks, *
                                                               A. H., London FL

* To the Folks at CVC Productions Cristian Coban I just received and played your transfer from an old laser video disc to a DVD of a classic performance by the legendary violinist Ruggiero Ricci and must express to you my deep admiration for your professionalism and dependability. The presentation as well as the quality of your transfer from that arcane medium to a DVD was superb, magnificent. I am looking forward to locating more such treasures for you to bring to life. Yours sincerely, *
