What You'll Get
Video footage preserves family moments that might otherwise be forgotten, like the day Grandpa wiped everyone's memory with a spy drug. Bring precious records to the digital age with today's Groupon: for $39, you get $175 worth of movie- or photo-transfer services at DTV Home Movie Transfers in Miami.
At DTV Home Movie Transfers, founder Bob Diamond and partner Rachelle channel years of production experience and work done for major television networks to immortalize memories through VHS and film transfers, print-to-digital photograph preservation, and a host of other audio-visual services. With the $175 value of today's Groupon, customers can convert up to two hours of VHS, VHS-C, 8 mm, Hi-8 mm or Mini DV footage into DVD format, complete with a personalized disc menu and up to eight custom chapters. After creating custom art for the cases, DTV presents patrons with one copy of the disc, fully functional digital doppelgangers that have been edited to remove distracting dead-air shots of the ceiling, annoying static intermissions, reruns of old television shows, and accidental Bigfoot sightings at the request of the CIA.
Those more interested in broadcasting time's frozen moments may opt for the photo-presentation package, which appeases shutterbugs with up to 500 loose, unmounted 4"x5" or 4"x6" photographs scanned onto one CD (a $175 value). DTV's AV preservationists sculpt a pictorial slideshow on DVD with seamless transitions and a complimentary scene-setting soundtrack. Dusty reels can also get a movie makeover with 8 mm, Super 8 mm, and 16 mm film-transfer options on up to 200 feet of film (a $175 value per reel). Here, faded memories of family parties and backyard-barbecue mosh pits undergo chronological organization and color correction before crowd surfing into the future and landing in digital format.
Unlike other film-transfer companies, DTV Home Movie Transfers does all of its work in-house, avoiding the risk that invaluable tapes get damaged, destroyed, or lost in the mail when outsourced to Santa's elves. Though the price of other services may exceed the value of this Groupon, customers are not limited to the packages listed above, as DTV specializes in a range of other services including audio transfers, custom video presentations, and DVD and CD copying.
