Cost Determination

Archival Transfers » Planning » Cost Determination

There are several points of information that must be known in order to determine the cost of an audiovisual archive project.  These include:

  • Quantity of assets
  • Asset formats
  • Asset run-times
  • Asset condition
  • Deliverables
  • Depth of QC
  • Delivery method
  • Repository requirements

Costs estimates are sometimes established using published prices — price per minute or per foot, for example.  Such estimates can only be considered rough and should not be fully relied upon.  Video Transfer takes the time to assist in the development of accurate cost estimates at no charge.  If possible, we will visit a collection’s storage facility to gather the information needed for an accurate cost estimate.   We also offer paid consultation services when advanced support or design work is needed.
