VHS DVD Transfer Services
Besides video production, I offer VHS DVD Transfer Services. And as we all know the season of gift giving is just weeks away. Transferring family home videos onto DVD’s or USB thumb drives make wonderful gifts. Click here to order a gift certificate.
Why transfer VHS to DVD?
First, DVD and Blu-Ray machines, along with computers, replaced VCR’s years ago. VCR’s are becoming obsolete and will probably be impossible to buy in five years, unless you find one at a yard sale. (To learn more here.)Therefore, if you want to watch those old home VHS movies, transfer them soon.
Second, VHS tapes, like 8 mm, Super 8 mm, and 16 mm film, become brittle throughout the years and break. Some are repairable; however, some are not. If a repair is not possible, your home movies are lost.
Third, some storage conditions can ruin VHS tapes. Storing tapes in damp conditions like basements can cause mold and mildew, even if the tapes are in cases. You can actually see mold on tapes, fuzzy white dust, and usually these tapes are impossible to transfer to DVD as VCR rollers become clogged with the dust. Sometimes my machine will completely reject a tape with mold on it.
Fourth, besides transferring to DVD’s I can convert your VHS tapes to a video file. I can save the file to a thumb drive which you can drag onto your computer. This saves space & storage.
Lastly, home videos, once long forgotten about, make great gifts!
Now for my own home video!
Here is a short film I shot in 1992 while attending Emerson College. The original 16 mm footage is a transfer to a video file. It stars my Grandmother and her dog Sandy.
