Transfer Your Holiday Video to DVD

Many people have old camcorder VHS format videos lying around the house, which can lose quality as they age. It is a lot more affordable than many imagine to get these old memories transferred onto new DVD files.

Video to DVD Transfer

Many people choose to transfer their VHS video files onto DVD for ease of use, quality of picture and longevity of content. Getting your old VHS videos transferred onto DVDs has never been easier now, thanks to Video 2 DVD Transfers.

Did you know that thousands of audio and videotapes are literally being eaten alive, destroying treasured family memories? Videotape is made from a cellulose carrier tape which is coated with ferric oxide which then stores the recording magnetically.

We are used to tapes becoming brittle and snapping over time. These kind of problem can be repaired and once repaired even old Betamax tapes can be transferred to DVD. More recently we have seen a massive increase in the number of tapes arriving with us that are infected with mould. Storage in damp and poorly ventilated conditions are the cause and the worst enemy of a videotape collection. The warm damp summers of the last three years have seen increasing numbers of mouldy tapes being sent to us. Once infected the spores spread rapidly and eat into the coating on the tape.

This damage can not be reversed nor can the recordings be recovered. There is nothing worse than having to tell a customer that the videotape with their wedding or child’s birthday recorded on it is lost forever.
