Transferring VHS, S-VHS, 8mm, Hi-8 and Digital 8 video to DVD, why it's so much more complicated than it seems.

I used to offer analog video to DVD services. I stopped offering the videotape to DVD service when I realized that for 99% of the population, the cost was all that mattered. 

If you are the curious type and wonder what goes into actually optimizing the quality of an amateur home video, you will be blown away by the amount of adjustments that can be made during the process of transferring a home video to either digital videotape or a hard drive, or straight to DVD.

Irrespective of what can be done digitally after a video is uploaded to a hard drive for further processing, the actual step of playing back the video is downplayed, even though the quality of the transfer into the digital realm is just as important as what can be done once in the digital realm.
