Video Tapes

Standard VHS video tapes have a shelf life of 15-20 years. After this, the content starts to degrade and will eventually be lost. This loss can be forestalled when important videos and family memories are simply lost to time. We work with a wide range of customers, restoring VHS and BetaMax content for grandmothers, amateurs, and young filmmakers. Our Sony Broadcast recorder accommodates projects ranging from one or two tapes to large video libraries.


We typically provide our files in MOV or AVI formats but we can also output to any Adobe friendly format like M4V, WMV, MPG, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, H.264, FCP, DivX, Apple’s .DV and virtually any other you might require. We can also add music, create slideshows, or add DVD menus as needed.


By default we will send you the files using a file transfer service. If you would prefer a hard copy we can provide the files on a USB drive, a data DVD, a playable DVD, or a Bluray. There is a 2 hour time limit for DVDs. We maintain copies of recorded content for 90 days.
