There's a ton of choices when it comes to converting your precious analog memories to long lasting digital formats like CD and DVD's. We've listed a few reasons below why you should choose Under Design's Digital Conversion Services and our superior conversion product for your next conversion job versus the Competition. Still have questions? Our Frequently Asked Questions may satisfy you, and if not, there's a simple form to ask us anything not covered! Or simply buy into the hype by reading what some of our customers (now fans) have to say about our excellent work!
They copied the album cover OK, but that boring CD is almost tragic. No track listings? Runtime? Track names? How about what format the disc is? While minimally passing, it can be better and more informative.
Our Collector's Edition discs are designed by a professional using art from the supplied album and include track names, numbers and runtimes, and the back of our CD includes the back of the record jacket!
We check our competitors sites pretty regularly. We use search engines to see what people are looking for, and who pays for clicks. We don't spend money on advertising, because the customer is the one who pays for it. All of our traffic is organic; Well designed, informative web pages and simple checkout procedures make us the price leader on the internet. No one has cheaper rates than us, and if they do, they offer a lackluster product that's poorly and unprofessionally produced. Also, smart consumers should determine actual turnaround times, final conversion costs and whether the work is produced in the U.S.A. before ordering any conversion job.
They include a barcode on your disc - why? For their convenience, not yours. You're but a number in their database, not a living breathing customer. The poor design uses too-tiny type that is hard to read as well.
Our design is clear, includes track numbers and runtime, as well as the data type logo clearly labeled. No secret serial numbers or barcodes to take up space on your newly minted media!
We've seen the ads on Craigslist and eBay offering
local service to Philadelphia (by way of other cities) with no real drop-off location for secure delivery of your precious home memories - only a distant P.O. Box of unknown location. When they use wrongly appropriated city keywords to capture your attention, they're simply wasting your time. We're located blocks from Rittenhouse Square in center city Philadelphia. We advertise exclusively on the internet, yet still offer our low prices in person as well, staying open weekdays from noon until 8pm to accommodate our customers busy schedules.
Email from one of our Customers:
I had been trying a firm called YesVideo through my local CVS but they take a month. They add music chapters and use really hokey music and twice they have returned my DVD's with only a minimal amount of what was on the tape, so I had to return them and wait another month until they did it right! I always worry about sending tapes with family memories out to California. It may not mean much to them, but it does to me! - Jack Haas (Voorhees, NJ)
Like we see in this screenshot captured at a competitor site, they got the artists name and album right, but those song names are horrible! What is "A Track #1"? It appears as if you're obligated to re-identify all those tracks in your media player!
We hand-type and double check our ID3 tags for easily identifiable MP3 files with full meta-data (including art from the jacket embedded into the MP3 file). There is no database of song titles of rare LP conversions, requiring our human touch to ensure valid & proper data.
First, the generic (branded!) disc media name will make it hard to identify once it's in your computer, and the disc format is not compliant with the DVD standard, meaning it won't play in all DVD players.
Our DVD media is appropriately named, and offers a clue to the contents, and it is formatted in standard DVD-Video format, for perfect playback on all devices! (It's also not copy-protected!)
So many things wrong in this picture! All VCRs don't play all tapes equally. Consumer DVD-recorders don't produce standards-compliant DVDs, which may not work in your home DVD player. You could do this at home for less, why pay for this obvious amateur?
We have a suite of a dozen VCRs to offer broad VHS tape compatibility. We run all video through our TBC then into a hardware MPEG-2 encoder for pristine glitch-free captures, which are remastered onto a standard DVD-Video disc.
