VHS, 8mm, Beta, U-Matic…
What Should I Do?
Frightening fact: Videotapes have a limited life – usually no more than 30 years; that’s even less than the lifespan of an average bear, 40 years. This deterioration happens as the magnetic tape sheds data, ruining your tapes and memories for good.
That means you could pop in a treasured video of your baby’s first steps…only to find total sound loss, tracking issues and video blackouts.
Don’t let video damage happen to your family. How? Transfer videos digitally. By transferring VHS to DVD or convert VHS into a digital movie file, you can feel good knowing they are safe and at-the-ready to watch.
What’s the Difference?
There are many different types of video cassette tapes that were in use as the media evolved through the years. It is likely your home movie collection is a mix of some or even all of these.
No matter which types of videotapes you have and how many precious memories you have captured on them – soccer games, vacation trips, junior dance recitals, weddings, birthday parties, memories of loved ones and more – we can handle the conversion process seamlessly, professionally and with utmost care.
There are three main reasons for transferring your videotapes to DVDs, HDD or other digital movie formats. The first, and most obvious, is the obsolescence of magnetic tape media and the machines needed to play them such as a VRC.
The second reason is that transfer to digital will allow you to resurrect the old home movies and memories stored on your videotapes utilizing today’s media and technology (computers, DVD players, social media, YouTube).
The last and most important reason, however, is that like all magnetic media, video tapes have a limited life expectancy – one likely much shorter than originally thought. Naturally occurring chemical processes cause degeneration of the tape and the information stored on it over time and can even cause playing problems that may damage the tape permanently.
Depending on how your videotapes have been stored and handled, how often they have been played, the original quality of the tape itself and other factors, videotape lifespan may only be a maximum of 20-30 years and as little as only 8-15 years.
This fact makes video to DVD conversion essential in order to ensure the preservation of the special moments and memories captured on video in your life and your family’s history.
