Video Services Provides satellite programming to any of the 20 classrooms which have been added to the campus cable television network. These classrooms also receive selected Education Network of Maine and Department of Education feeds and many cable channels as well. We also provide videotape duplication services with broadcast quality equipment for video tape recording and dubbing in VHS, S-VHS and 3/4" U-matic SP formats.
Video Services is your one-stop-shop for all your media duplication needs. Conversion of your foreign standard media (whether PAL, PAL-M, PAL-N, SECAM, or ME-SECAM) to the US standard (NTSC), or vice versa, is a snap. You won't have to worry about your media being stored as an unrecognizable format, either. We accept master formats in VHS, SVHS, VHS-C, Hi 8mm, 8mm, 3/4" Umatic/SP, DV (on tape or CD), and DVD. We use only professional grade Maxell VHS tapes and duplication is processed with a broadcast quality time based corrector for guaranteed superior results.
We're sure that with our fast turnaround (typically in two working days or less), friendly service, low and fair prices, and high duplication quality you'll be very pleased and thoroughly satisfied.
