VIDEO TAPES + HOME MOVIES

Your home video tape memories will get new life as digital movie files. Those files can be played on TVs, computers, tablets and phones. Plus they can easily be shared with family members or friends. 

Your video tapes are first inspected, repaired, and then cleaned in preparation for the transfer process. Proper handling of this media is a very important first step, as dated tapes become brittle and can easily break or tangle in an old player. Our experienced technicians are trained to properly handle vintage video tapes.

FORMATS:
+ VHS, VHS-C
+ MINI-DV
+ Betamax, PAL
+ Digital 8, Hi8
+ MicroMV

*Check with your local provider regarding uncommon formats.

FILE DELIVERABLE:
+ MP4 (PC + Mac compatible)

MEDIA:
+ DVD/CD
+ Thumb drive
+ Digital download

Original video tapes are returned to you once the project is complete.

80’s Home Videos

“My siblings and I inherited the boxes of VHS tapes our parents had been saving. At first, the tapes sat around at my house for a couple years, but then I finally decided it was time to digitize them. The process was very simple. My siblings and I split the cost and each received our own thumb drive full of the footage. What a blast these were to rewatch!! I was able to show my own children what I looked and sounded like what I was younger.”

– Kasey, Laura and Brandon

Who needs a copy?

Once your materials are digitized, making duplicate copies is quite easy and affordable.

Before you embark on your project, consider who else would like a set of the files; parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins, your children, etc.  It’s far too complicated to pass the same DVD or thumb drive around to family members.
