VHS to DVD Transfer

Why transfer your video tapes today?

VHS tapes have a shelf life.  If they are more than 10 years old, they have already started to fade away.  Instead of lasting forever, those priceless precious memories are disappearing – victims of heat, humidity, playback wear and tear, and the years themselves.

Act now to stop the degradation.  Once your precious home movies are preserved in a quality digital format, they are safe guarded from degradation so they can be enjoyed and stored forever.

Our video transfer lab in Newton, MA can transfer the following formats:  VHS, Super VHS, VHS-C, Betamax, Hi8, Video8, 8mm, Betamax, miniDV, High-def miniDV, as well as professional tape formats: ¾” Umatic and Betacam SP.  If your tape is from outside the U.S., it may be in a PAL format which we will convert to NTSC so you can watch the video in the U.S.

    Dear Sir or Madam:

    I have a batch of Hi8 and miniDV tapes that I would like to convert. However, some of them aren’t labelled and I don’t know which are blank and which have good material worth preserving. Unfortunately, my old videocamera doesn’t seem to be able to replay the old tapes so that I can review them. Is there a service that would let me take a look before submitting them to you for conversion – where I can rent your viewing equipment in-house to do the screening, for example?

  3. Sony has and always been the king of electronics. Especially TVs. 1-3 quarters behind industry? you are on crack? Compare sony’s 3d glasses to anybody else’ and then tell me who is behind on the technology. Also compared sony’s LED tvs to other LED tvs and you will see obvious quality differences. Sony is also working on glasses free tv’s but until they have something worthwhile they wont bother demoing it.

  4. Great post at VHS to DVD Transfer. I was checking continuously this blog and I am impressed! Extremely useful info particularly the last part :) I care for such info a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a long time. Thank you and good luck.

  5. Thanks, Jinx. It’s actually quite scary when you start going thurgoh lists of films and realise exactly how many you’ve seen over the years. I once did a different equation based on watching three movies a day and I must have gone wrong somewhere because the total gave me 200,000 films that I’ve watched and I don’t even think there are that many in existence. :D Maths is not my strong point. :( I think I’ve probably watched about 10,000 films realistically. I always have the movie channels on so it soon builds up.
