Got Questions?

Things in the tech world move amazingly quickly.  Remember Flip Cameras?  So if you have old media that you aren’t sure of, call us or bring it by and we’ll give you the options.

And remember, we can convert to CDs or DVDs, but also to digital formats like MP4, MOV, MP3, etc.  And we can use one of our flash drives or your flash drive or external hard drive. We do not offer external hard drives for sale.

Ordinary formats we convert:

  1.  Video:  VHS, VHS-C, 8mm (Hi-8) Video, Mini DV
  2.  Film:    8mm or Super 8mm
  3.  Audio:  45s, LPs, cassettes, reel-to-reel
  4.  Photos:  Prints (up to 13 x 19), slides and negatives (up to 2 1/4″)

Obscure formats we convert:

  1. Flip Camera video
  2. Photos, videos and audio off your smart phone
  3. Mini discs
  4. Micro-audio cassettes
  5. Beta SP videotape
  6. Betamax videotape
  7. 78 RPM records
  8. Hi-Def Mini DV

Formats we cannot convert, but if you are in doubt, just ask:

  1. Old computer discs (floppy discs)
  2. 8-track audio cartridges
  3. 3/4″ and 1″ videotapes
  4. 16 mm film
  5. PAL tapes (usually from overseas)
  6. Negatives larger than 2 1/4″

NOTE:  If you have old VHS tapes of your favorite TV shows or movies you want to convert, we suggest you try to buy the DVD online instead.  The quality will be far better and the cost is usually lower than conversion.

Your memories are precious: weddings, baby’s first steps, school plays, sports competitions, musical performances, family vacations, birthdays, anniversaries or loved ones now gone.
These memories live on a variety of videotapes all over your home, gathering dust and deteriorating more each day. Plus— you have no way to view these captured moments. You no longer have a VCR or the camera they were shot with. Stacks of memories.  .  . unwatchable, unshareable.

We can save these moments in your life.

  • VHS-C tapes
  • Hi-8  or 8mm tapes
  • Mini DV tapes, HD Mini DV

We don’t charge extra for a personalized label printed on your DVD or the jewelcase we put it in.

We can also duplicate your discs–as many as you need with quantity discounts, custom labeling, and presentation boxes.

If you choose a digital format, we will deliver it on the hard drive or flash drive you provide, or we can provide one for you.

We can also upload your video to YouTube, Vimeo, Dropbox, etc.  We’ll even build your YouTube Channel.

Do you have reels of old 8mm or Super 8mm film in those round tin film cans or small yellow boxes with faded labels? Chances are they are becoming dry and brittle from being stored in the attic, garage or the top of a closed, hot closet. Save them while you can. Bring back magical images of yourself as a child, parents when they were first married, family and fiends who are no longer here.

We will turn your memories into modern digital  files. The whole process takes place at our location, usually within 3 weeks.

  • The footage is scanned one frame at a time to capture the best possible image.
  • The digitized footage is transferred to a computer editing system where the color and image are enhanced.
  • You can have music and titles added.
  • The finish video is chapter marked and can be put on DVDs to be shared with family and friends.
  • We can also export your film to digital formats so that you can edit them.
  • Your film can be uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo.
 Bring us that valuable old  8mm film.
