Yes! We convert most consumer video tapes. Your tapes will be transferred so you can see every detail of the original video. We deliver your digital videos on high quality DVDs and/or mp4 format (via thumb drives and/or digital download through Google Drive).
While we are able to convert most consumer formats (VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, MiniDV, Betamax), there are a few formats we cannot process. Here they are:
- ¾” Tapes (commonly called VTR)
- DAT tapes
- Broadcast tapes
- Anything larger than VHS
Each tape counts as one item in your order, and we will provide a complete start-to-finish transfer to digital for each tape you include.
Given the nature of our digitization process, all video transfers will be in 4:3 aspect ratio, regardless of the original aspect ratio.
The majority of tapes are natively 4:3, so they will look just as they did when originally recorded. In some rare cases, newer tapes may have been shot in 16:9 aspect ratio, or high definition. We are not able to convert the finished files to 16:9, and we are unable to produce HD digital files.
For a sneak peak into the quality of our tape transfers, there are three examples below.
