Video / Format Conversion
ATS can convert many types of analog and digital video and audio media MP4 format for distribution in Canvas courses. If your source media needs to be edited first before conversion, we can work with you upon request.
Don’t see your format listed here? We may still be able to accommodate you. Please contact us for more information.
- VHS/VHS-C/SVHS/SVHS-C (NTSC/PAL/SECAM)
- MPEG-4 H.264/AAC File
- Web site
Video Editing: $60/hour
DVD based source: Costs are $20 for up to one hour of content and $5 for each additional hour, per source.
Tape based source: Costs are $40 for up to one hour of content and $10 for each additional hour, per source.
Why are tape based sources higher? The cost is higher due to the fact that tape based machines are no longer being produced in large quantities, meaning that new machines are more expensive to purchase. They are also more expensive (or impossible) to repair. Another fact is that tape based media is a “real-time” conversion; meaning that if the media is 2 hours long, it takes two hours to convert. A DVD source converts significantly faster.
ATS will not copy any content for which you do not hold copyright or copyright permission. This includes (but is not limited to) software titles, training videos, movies, and promotional videos. ATS cannot remove any anti-piracy measures in order to make a copy of media, even with copyright clearance.
If you are uncertain about copyright, please bring us the video in question and we will be happy to assist you in researching the material.
