Video Experience

Under Design was founded in 1992, working in many media forms integrating design into real-world applications. We have nearly 20 years of experience in film/video, plus years more experience in digital recording, multi-media development, video compression and digital encoding. We've added extensively to our video processing hardware and assembled top-of-the-line equipment to ensure quality transfers at an affordable price. We create standards-compliant DVD-R's with top-rated media to ensure a high-caliber and highly-compatible product. All of our DVD's are world-region playable NTSC Video.

Professional Results

We make the best possible copy of your source video by using multiple brands of professional S-VHS video decks along with time base correctors, video sharpeners and color correctors to ensure the best possible video signal which we record using a real-time MPEG-2 hardware encoder to produce DVD-Standard Video. Each transfer is monitored by our skilled video technicians whose only goal is creating the best looking video transfer possible. See what other satisfied customers are saying about their new digital conversions!


Digital Remastering

We create high-quality, highly compatible, non-intrusive DVD's that'll allow you to put your remote down and enjoy your classic videos. No ugly menus, no warning messages, no video branding. If your DVD requires a menu, it will load quickly and be extremely simple to use. We automatically insert chapter markers every five minutes in all video clips. Better than you can do at home!

Personal Service

If you have a massive project for your TV station, university, corporation, government agency or just an intricate order that requires a person, contact us here at Under Design and we'll be glad to help you out! We can handle all sorts of custom orders, and offer bulk discounts that fit your budget. Act quickly, as VCR's are now officially a dead technology! We love to provide local, personal service, so if you are in the center city Philadelphia, PA area, we're open Tuesday-Friday from noon until 6pm for dropping off your digital conversion orders.

Free Exclusive Bonuses

PAL to NTSC Video

Have a tape recorded in England, Europe or Brazil? It's in PAL video format, and while it looks like a regular VCR tape, it won't play in your VCR or on your TV, which uses NTSC format. We can now convert your PAL VHS videotape to an NTSC DVD for no extra charge!

Tape Repair

Sometimes your favorite VHS videos suffer from misbehaving VCR's. Tape snapped inside your favorite home movie? We'll gladly repair any VHS video tape you submit for conversion. We can't promise perfect video (they'll definitely be a disturbance where the tape snapped) but we will gladly recover the rest of the tape for posterity!

No Charge for Blank Videotapes!
