Drop-Off Services

Service Policies

  1. The customer must purchase any and all media (DVD, CD, VHS tapes, etc.) used in the duplication process from CTLT. We do this so that we can ensure compatibility with our hardware and ensure the widest playback compatibility possible. In short – we do the research so you don’t have to.
  2. We reserve the right to refuse duplication of material! If the material to be duplicated violates copyright laws, or goes beyond the scope of Fair Use, or is outside of the scope of a teaching environment, we simply will not duplicate it. We intend to uphold copyright laws to the best of our ability - - we’re serious!
  3. The Drop-Off service is a scheduled service. Right now we do not have a person on staff whose sole responsibility is to man the duplication services. Therefore, your request needs to be scheduled with us. We’re working on a first-come first-served basis and when you schedule a job with us, we will give you an approximate turn-around date. Also, please bear in mind that we may not be able to do that “rush-job” - - so plan accordingly! Furthermore, larger jobs may need to be scheduled in smaller chunks.

User may, however, define smaller segment from original tape. (i.e. 30 minutes of a 2 hour tape) We will NOT do smaller non-consecutive segments of a VHS tape in a drop-off setting. In the case that a tape is to be copied from a point other than the start – the customer must cue the tape to that point – we will then copy from that point on to the specified length (when not defined it will be copied to end)
