Foreign Format Conversion from tapes and DVDs

Unless your DVD or video tape came from one of the countries listed at the right, it's in a format that your DVD player or VCR probably can't play -- either the PAL or possibly the SECAM format.

Likewise, if you're planning to send a DVD or tape of Uncle Fred and Aunt Frieda's wedding anniversary to a friend in England, or Ghana, or Martinique or France, your friend probably won't be able to view your DVD or tape on her equipment.

In either case, you're a candidate for a format conversion, a process in which your original DVD or tape is played through a converter which makes a copy of the original in the proper format: PAL for England, SECAM for France and NTSC for the U.S.A. You get back the original, unaltered.
