DVDs vs. VHS tapes - 5/9/06
- Lets face
it, VHS is a 20th century media. DVDs have increasingly taken over
the video market, both in commercial and personal video. Prices of
DVD players have decreased to the sub $30 range and conversely, VHS
decks have increased to the $60 range and are pretty hard to find!
It is to everyones advantage to just ship and make DVDs the video
media of choice. The result will be better picture quality, space
saving (10 DVDs in a special binder is smaller than a single VHS
tape) and longevity ... Most DVDs will last 50+ years vs. an
average of 10 years for VHS (and most other analog magnetic
Because of this, Keepsake Video/KVI Media has increase DVD
production capability with two DVD duplicating systems that are
capable of producing some 42 - 2 hour DVDs per hour! We also
invested in a robotic DVD printer to create full color labels
directly onto the DVD, without using stick-on paper labels. All
this to better serve our clients and create the highest possible
quality product in the shortest time period.

My DVD won't play - 9/1/04
- I just got my DVD and it skips,
stops, studders, jumps around. All my movies play just fine. My DVD
must be bad.....Not likely. Here is why.
Commercially produced movies are replicated. That is they are
stamped out in a press. The method that we use in producing DVDs is
duplication, which is recording each DVD. This is known as DVD
recordable (DVD-R or DVD+R). Because of the different methods of
creation, some DVD players, especially older machines do not
recognize DVD-Rs and will react differently, from not 'seeing' the
DVD at all to partial play (with skipping). This is do to the fact
that initially, when the DVD format was created, there was no such
thing as a recordable DVD and the players were built accordingly.
But now that DVD-Rs are common place, newer players are designed to
recognize the new format and will play them along with your rental
movies. This is not unique to our DVDs, all small quantity DVD
production use the DVD-R (or DVD+R) method, so if your player does
not function with our DVDs, it will not function with ANY recorded
DVD, from any source.
If you are having a problem with your KVI Media DVD, call us with
your DVD player make and model number. We can compare it to an
ever-growing list of tested DVD players to confirm if your machine
is compatible with recordable DVDs or click here to check it
yourself ----> DVD
Player Check .
KVI Media trys to minimize compatibility problems by using the best
DVD media available, recording at speeds known to provide maximum
compatibility and digitally checking each and every DVD to the
origional master DVD to be sure that the record it 100% perfect and
true to the origional. If there is a single digital bit difference
between the two, the recorded DVD is rejected as bad.
If you have any additional questions on recordable DVDs, feel free
to contact us by email or phone.
Weddings - 3/7/2004
- Although Keepsake Video cut it's
teeth on producing wedding videos, we are sad to announce that we
no longer offer wedding video production. Many factors forced us to
re-think our position in the industry, the most basic is an
economic one. The economy, trends, and wedding budgets may all have
a part in the decline of interest in Keepsake producing wedding
memories for area brides and grooms. Our policy from day one was to
produce the best possible product, but with limited budgets and
time constraints of other projects, we could not continue with
weddings with a clear conscience. We appologize if we have
disappointed anyone and we will help you to find another qualified
person to capture your wedding day memories. We know of several
local companies that we feel confident you will be happy with.
Keepsake Video will still support the art of creating wedding
memories. Together with The 4EVER Group, we feel that education on
the importance of telling your wedding day story is key having one
created, regardless of your budget. Of all the expense of the day,
the cake, the limo, the flowers ....... your photos and video will
be the only way to remember the day and better yet, allow you to
replay the day for your children and grandchildren. If you need
more reasons, please visit the 4EVER Group website ( http://4evergroup.org ) to see just
what is currently being created for newlyweds around the country
and the world. I think that you just be surprised and change your
mind on how much that wedding video is actually
