Media Conversion Services
What We Do:
Media Conversion Services LLC (MCS) was created to be a full-service Media Management Company. First, disc content in the form of DVDS, or Blu Rays, CDs, or other forms are converted into digital files. Next, the media content is compressed to reduce file size, web optimized, and formatted to proper ratio per Customer specifications. This step is critical to maximizes our client's storage space on their onboard IFE system (Media Server) and gives you the videos exactly the way you want them. Thirdly (Optional), when the digital files have been optimized, we upload the content to your Carry-On In-Flight Entertainment. During the upload stage of the files MSC ensures all content including Titles, Artwork, Descriptions, and other metadata is populated and correlates to the files ensuring a professional and friendly user-interface within the IFE Server. Lastly, to make our service a whole package we provide an itemized data list showing all the digital files converted with their applicable data. If you elect to have us upload your new files to your server that file will also include all existing files on your Media Server. The file is provided as an editable excel file making it easy to search, update, and delete any entries to stay current with your current Media Library.
Background of Company, Primary Goal & Contact Information:
Media Conversion Services was started when I saw a need in the industry for Media Content Conversions. As an Interior Completions Engineer on VIP and VVIP Aircraft I saw how time consuming and challenging it is to populate the Carry-On Media Servers and onboard IFE Systems and saw the lack of people offering this service. My goal with Media Conversion Services LLC is to provide an easy and affordable alternative to uploading content into IFE Systems without sacrificing on quality. If you want a straight price and have quality content uploaded to your server, you may reach me directly at Stephen.Whippie@mediaconversionservices.com

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I have a large DVD / Blu-Ray Library collection. Can you convert these to MP4 files?
A: Yes! We can convert existing DVDs and Blu-Rays. Blu-Rays provide a higher qality video for larger screen viewing. But Standard Definition DVDs still look very good on medium and smaller screens and use less space on your IFE server.
Q: If I elect to upload the files to my media server what do I actually receive from Media Conversion Services?
A: Media Conversion Services converts physical movie and music data to digital data that can be easily transferred to your Aircraft or Non-Aircraft Media Server. For Video files this is a "MP4" and for Music files this is a "MP3". We can provide other file types upon request, but MP4 & MP3 are the industry standard and will work when uploaded. You will also receive an excel sheet detailing the conversions, file name, content title, and content information.
Q: I don't want to upload the data to my IFE Server, is that something MCS can do?
A: Absolutely! If your Media Server is a carry-on or portable IFE server this is easy and something we already offer to other clients. Simply ship us the Carry-On equipment and we will upload all the new content then ship back to your desired address. If your IFE system is permanently installed or you aren't comfortable shipping your equipment, we have other options to assist with the data uploads we can discuss further by email (email@example.com).
Q: I don't have any Blu-Rays or DVDs and I don't want to buy any. What options can you provide for me?
A: Media Conversion Services can build a movie library for you from a list of movies requested. When you don't want to deal with the hassle of purchasing the DVDs or Blu-Rays, we will purchase them for you. The content is then converted to a digital format for every movie requested.
