When PME starts a VHS to DVD transfer we check and verify all tape cassettes for damaged roller mechanisms and are replaced if necessary, we clean them as required and repair any ripped or torn tape. The broken tapes are spliced and any extracted length of film is returned to you at the end of the job. We then transfer the video onto quality DVD's. Your DVD will have a front end menu with chapters giving you the option to skip to preferred scenes. Titles & Credits can be added. Each job is completed with quality Case or desired cover.

If you want to play VHS tapes from Europe on tape players in the United States, first you must know that the analog video format in the U.S. is different than that in those countries. The U.S. uses the NTSC standard, while the UK uses the PAL standard. VHS tapes that were recorded in the PAL format will not play on standard VHS players in U.S. unless the video signal is converted. There are different ways to have this signal conversion accomplished.

NTSC delivers a frame rate of 30 fps at an aspect ratio of 720x480, and is used in North America, Japan and South Korea. PAL is a different video standard that is incompatible with NTSC; it uses a fame rate of 25 fps and 720 x 576 aspect ratio, and is used in most of Europe, Australia and large parts of Africa and Asia. The differences between NTSC and PAL are the reason why some DVDs or VHS tapes from Europe may not play in the United States and vice versa. Most European DVD players can read NTSC and most PAL TVs can display NTSC video. But NTSC DVD players usually cannot read PAL.

There is a third standard, called SECAM (Sequential Couleur Avec Memoire or Sequential Color with Memory), that is used in Eastern Europe and France.
