What We Transfer

VHS, Hi8, MiniDV and all the rest. We'll digitize them once, the right way, so you never have to do it again.

  • VHS / VHS-C / S-VHS
    VHS / VHS-C / S-VHS

    VHS, along with Betamax, is the original and most popular consumer video tape format.

  • Video8 / Hi8 / Digital8
    Video8 / Hi8 / Digital8

    8mm video tape brought smaller size and the same or better quality as VHS formats.

  • MiniDV / HDV
    MiniDV / HDV

    MiniDV is the last consumer tape format, supporting SD or HD resolution (as HDV).

I had twenty years of different format videos to be transferred to a hard drive. I walked into the office and was treated like I was bringing a child to the doctor.

Rare and Professional Formats

We transfer many other formats as well, including Betamax and MicroMV. Professional formats such as U-Matic, Betacam SP, DVCam and DVC Pro are priced separately. You will find these prices in our order estimation tool, and we encourage you to write or call if anything is unclear.

Why We're The Best

There are many different ways to digitize video. The trick is to find that sweet spot between a big, expensive process and a cheaper process that sacrifices on quality. Simply put, we did our homework.

Every tape is monitored from beginning to end during capture. We often transfer a tape multiple times.

Top of The Class

We’ve done the comparisons and have mastered a system that produces the best looking images possible in this price range, and back it up with great service. Our system and staff ensure every request is met and communication is made with honesty and respect. Our culture is to focus on the relationship with the client as much as the digitization process itself. Just ask the internet!

Service Options

We offer different levels of service to meet the different needs of our clients. We also have a handy tool on our estimation page to help you determine which option may suit you best.

Service Levels

  • Raw

    Raw service means you will receive the transferred files without any editing. We sometimes re-transfer sections of video, so you will have fragmented files that will require editing to stitch together.

  • Direct

    Direct service adds editing so that you receive one complete file for each video tape. We leave in the few seconds of blank in the beginning and up to 5-10 minutes blank at the end.

  • Complete

    Complete service adds trimming to the exact beginning and ending frame of the recorded content. We also make sure to name the file with as much of the written label from the tape as possible.

Digital Output

Digital videos are output to an external USB drive as data, and as DVD or Blu-Ray discs. All files are backed up on our servers for 30 days.
