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

[image: vhs tape with tape exposed] 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

[image: diy solution with disappointing results] 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! Click our graphic above (or here) for a side-by-side comparison of our features.
