What do you mean by ‘from $14’?

We charge $14.00 for each tape up to 1.5 hours as Analog tape conversions have to be done in real time.  In addition, the price of $14 only applies to the tapes after the 30th tape. The previous 30 tapes would be at a rate of $18.00.

Jobs that require more than 11 tapes but less than 20 tapes are charged at $19.00 per tape and anything less than 10 tapes is $20.00 per tape which is still well below the market rates.

Please note there is an additional $5 fee applied for all NTSC American/Japanese tapes above the usual rate.
