Video Transfer

Why Your Movies Should be Transferred Now

Magnetic tapes, including VHS, VHS-C, HI-8, and even MINI-DV, have an average lifespan of 10-15 years.  In as little as two years, the magnetic particles that make up the picture and sound will begin to wear off of plastic tape backing.  Stray magnetic fields in the environment cause signal loss. Typical usage will further degrade your tapes on every viewing. The VCR head causes physical wear, as does the movement of the tape through the transport.

DVD has lifespan of 100 years, providing permanent family video that will never degrade.  No one can accidentally erase your tape, children cannot harm it with sticky spills, and there is no danger of your DVD player eating your disc as VCRs so often do with tape.

A DVD can be viewed and shared time and time again with no loss in picture or audio quality. You can rest assured that you will never have to let go of the sound of grandma's laughter as you have it forever preserved on a DVD.
