    From Video Tapes to Digital

    Although video was initially used by professional broadcasters, introduction of the first consumer Betamax video camcorder in 1983 made it possible to shoot videos at home. Quickly following on its heels was the first VHS-C camcorder, then a lighter 8mm video camcorder just one year later. The first digital video technology released in 1995 led to people today being able to create, share, and view videos at the drop of a hat. Even back then, this format made it easier than ever before to capture family events and special milestones. If you own stacks of old videos and movie reels sitting untouched for years, the best way to rekindle generations of memories is to convert video tapes to digital and transfer movies. 

    Convert Camcorder Tapes to Digital 

    The reality is that videos tapes and movies simply won’t last forever. In addition to fading, tearing, and breaking, finding working equipment to play them back becomes less likely with each passing year. Transforming fragile media into 21st-century media is the only way to preserve them for posterity. If you convert camcorder tapes to digital, you’ll capture these memories forever. Our largest transfer box is the perfect choice if you have a lot of media to convert or wish to give somebody an incredible gift they’ll remember for generations to come. You can mix and match the following formats: 

    • 40 videos tapes: VHS, VHS-C, BetaMax, Hi8, MiniDV, and Digital 8
    • 40 home movie reels: 8mm, Super 8, 16mm, and 35mm 
    • 40 bundles of 50 photographs (for a total of 2,000 photos, slides or 35mm negatives)
