Let us transfer your tapes to DVDs.
Video tapes -- VHS, 8mm, or other tapes have a shelf life of 20 + years, depending
on storage temperature and quality of the tape--thickness of the mylar and the
ferrite coatings. 15 year-old video on Professional Quality tapes, no problem. On
$2 economy tapes ???
Loss occurs when the ferrite coatings lose their effectiveness. It starts out by a
noticeable loss of color and quality of the video. Seen any old photos of your great
grand parents? (Go to Photo repairs on this web site) They can be torn, scratched, with yellow
stains. When they were new they looked perfect. Don't let this happen to your
priceless family video tapes.
VHS players are already dinosaurs. Got any vinyl music records? Got a record
player to play them? How about a reel of home movies --got a projector that
actually works? The same thing will happen to the VHS players. I would say that in
twenty years you will buy a VCR from a speciality vendor dealing in old refurbished
electronic equipment. That's where I get my home movie projectors.
Remember your grand-daughters third birthday? Some day, without conversion,
those birthday memories will be just that--Memories! Don't let that happen. Get
the video off of tape and onto digital media.
The hardest part of this process is taking the time to gather up your tapes and
getting them to us for conversion. You will be glad you did!
