Why should you preserve your VHS tapes?

The expected shelf life of video tape is 25 years. VHS to DVD Transfer and restoration services are crucial to preserve cherished memories recorded on analogue format (like VHS tape). Restoration of your family memories is done in our lab and begins with the digitization process. This is when the analogue VHS tape is transferred or digitized into our computer. Once digitized, we can apply enhancement tools to restore the quality and in many instances repair your VHS footage. This process ensures that your films will be safe. You can receive your restored VHS content several ways. Some are DVD, jump or thumb drive and even uploaded to the Internet on networks like YouTube.
