Before you reach out for a conversion request please know that Falvey Library offers streaming access to thousands of videos across a wide range of genres and disciplines. You can search these holdings by visiting https://library.villanova.edu/research/guides-tools/howto-guides/streaming-video-falvey.
Unit's Multimedia Technologies has a number of video-related services. These include duplicating videotapes (fewer than five copies), converting one video format to another (such as Hi-8 to VHS), converting a foreign VHS video standard to enable viewing in this country, duplication of audiotapes (limited number of copies), conversion from analog to digital (VHS to DVD) and placement of digital materials on our streaming servers.
Media Services does not provide or sell blank media (VHS, DVD, CDs, etc..) to faculty staff and students. For duplication and conversion, you must fill out and provide a signed Conversion Request Form with the materials to be duplicated or converted. The media along with the signed form should be sent via campus mail to Video Services TSB 310.
Content that is being digitized by CIT will take up to seven to ten business days to be completed, depending on the complexity of the conversion. Timeframes for other services such as video creation/production will vary by project.
