Rediscover Home Movies

Do you have a box of videotapes filled with irreplaceable memories?  We can help you bring them into the present to be enjoyed and shared with others.  The first step is to convert each tape to digital and then the video files can be loaded on a hard drive or made into custom DVDs.

Digital Video Library

We can convert your collection of videotapes to a digital video library on a hard drive for computer viewing or editing. Each tape we digitize is numbered to correlate to the digital file names. You can copy the videos to multiple hard drives to share with family and friends.

Custom TV Ready DVDs

We can create custom DVDs in a slimline case with a printed thumbnail index of the video contents for a quick view of the subject matter.  It is easy to navigate video footage and playable on any standard DVD player.

What videotape formats do you convert to digital?

We convert VHS, VHS-C, Video8, Hi8, Digital8, MiniDV, HDV, Betamax, and PAL VHS tape formats.

What digital video format do you convert to?

Our standard digital file output for videotape transfers is H.264 MP4 format which is widely compatible with both Windows and Mac OS.  We use a high quality low compression bit rate setting.

Do you convert tapes with TV shows or movies on them?

We will not transfer any TV recordings or movies unless there are specific recordings you note that you want digitized. For example, a nightly news story with a friend or relative highlighted.

What if a tape is blank. Do you still charge for it?

We only charge for videotapes with actual footage, so if a tape is discovered to be blank, we will indicate this on the original and not charge for it.

How will my video transfers to digitally organized?

We will custom title each digital file with subject info on the original tape, or if not applicable assign a number to use in the digital file to correlate with the original source.  Each tape will be converted to a single file and custom trimmed in the beginning and end to cut out blank or static footage.

Can you combine multiple tapes to a single DVD?

The capacity limit of a video DVD is about 2 hours, so usually only a single tape can be burned to a DVD.  Unless you have a specific need to view a video in a standard DVD player or DVD-ROM only, we recommend a USB flash drive which can contain a much greater amount of video on a single drive and playable on any device with a USB port.  We also offer online Dropbox download of video transfers for a non-tangible output option.

Can you edit my video transfers to remove parts I don’t want?

We can custom edit your video by special request with instructions you provide.  Otherwise the video files can be edited using proper video editing software at any later time.
