- HomeMovie.com, which started in 1999, can digitize a two-hour videotape for $5. Customers can then edit their footage on the company's Web site and order DVDs for less than $20.
- Videos dropped off at these stores [Walgreens, Target and Ritz Camera] are sent to YesVideo to be converted into a DVD for about $25.
- Pictureal, the relative newcomer of the three, is a Web service that offers automated editing. The firm claims its technology can sift through video footage, eliminate errors and scenes with little action, and provide a final product that looks good without hours of editing. Their higher prices -- $99 to convert three hours of video into one DVD -- reflect that service.
