Lotus Media

Video and Audio Digitization

We offer the same flat pricing for all media types, and offer volume discounts for large orders, so the more you digitize the more you save. All prices are before tax.

Pricing is based on total tapes/discs, and includes up to 2 hours of footage per tape. Tapes longer than 2 hours are billed at $9 per additional 2 hour segment. Pricing applies to all formats such as Beta and U-Matic, and all regions such as PAL and SECAM. Pricing for professional grade tape formats (HDV, DVCam, DVCAm Pro, BetaCam, BetaCam SP, BetaCam Digital, and D5) is 1.5x the rates below.
8mm and Super 8 Film

Film digitization pricing is based on 50ft of film (3 inch reels), which is roughly 3 mins of video. Larger reels count as multiple tapes. Example: a 5 inch reel can hold 200 feet of film, and will count as four tapes.

The pricing below is for single-sided finalized (aka machine-playable discs). Non-finalized DVD are subject to an additional $10 Date Recovery fee per non-playable disc.
