It's Time To Transfer Those Tapes

Video Tape Transfers

Your video tapes are cared for by our trained archiving experts, who will treat your materials with the utmost care. Your items never leave our store or get shipped away, and we return all original media to you once the process is complete.

Every tape is rewound and then captured start to finish to ensure we recover all content. If a tape stops prior to expected recording times, we capture it a second time for verification.

Once your tape is captured, a trained technician will review the footage for negative space and commercial content - which gets removed from the final output. We evaluate each tape for the best possible quality and then return the digital files in the output of your choosing. We can provide you digital files on a USB flash drive, a digital download or a DVD disc.

If your tapes are labeled, we'll keep the content in chronological order. Have special notes? We'll do our best to include them. These are precious memories, so if you have a special request or questions - please ask us!
