Transfer-Old-Video-Tapes-To-Dvd

Turn those old videotapes into digital masterpieces, and share them with your friends and family.

Best Way To Transfer Video To DVD

There are a couple of ways to transfer your videotapes to DVD.

You could buy expensive equipment and do it yourself, hoping you get it right.

The best way to transfer video to DVD is by sending your photos and videos to Memory Fortress’ video transfer service, and we will do it for you.

The cost of an affordable online service surely outweighs the “do it yourself” option.

We guarantee your satisfaction and will return your original tapes and photos better than we received.

Analog To Digital Conversion

Turning video to digital from analog has many benefits. 

With the increase in 4k and 1080p being the standard in most televisions and monitors, it’s pretty cool to see your old videos come to life.

Unlike analog music, pieces of vinal records give music a unique sound.

Video is much better in digital as it can be cleaned up, and the colors and crispness become sharper.

Can A VHS Tape Be Converted To A DVD

You may wonder if transferring those old VHS tapes over to DVD is best. And the answer is absolutely yes.

Technology is moving fast, and those old home movies will soon need to be converted from 8mm and VHS to a more modern digital media format.

DVDs are still relevant in most households, and with today’s television, the video quality is 10x better for viewing.

Want to share your videos on multiple social media platforms or computers? Another great option is to transfer your home movies to a USB and the cloud.

Why Transfer VHS To Digital Media Now?

If you have old VHS, 8mm tape home videos handed down, transferring them to DVD or another modern digital format is best.

Technology is moving fast, and analog video will soon be a thing of the past. Your VCR and Hi8 cameras are becoming more challenging to find in working order.

There will be no need to keep them around, thinking one day you will get to them, and by then, it will be too late.

New formats of capturing video, like a capture card, USB 2 0, and Elgato video capture, have replaced video transfer and are easy to use.

You will want to keep your videos from past family events like birthday parties, weddings, or graduations.

Can A Vhs Tape Be Converted To A Dvd

Analog video comes in many formats; most of what we see is 8mm camcorder tapes.

Being a much smaller film strip, 8mm was popular in filmmaking earlier than VHS.

You will see a lot of black and white films being created with an 8-millimeter film.

Most of the videos your grandparents hand down will be reel-to-reel films.

Videotapes And Movie Film To DVD

I have videotapes (VHS, Hi8 and 8mm, VHS-C, and MiniDV)

  • If the videotape is in its own case, please leave it there, with a label. Your digital file will be named with that label. “Christmas 1991” sounds much better than “Tape 4.”
  • Group all of the tapes together if possible. Processing videotapes requires different equipment than other forms of media, and we can get started much more quickly if we aren’t searching for it.
  • Your tapes will ultimately come back on a DVD … one DVD for each tape. If you want all of your tapes on flash drives as well, we can do that. Please keep in mind that very large flash drives are expensive, but we can put up to 250GB of movies on a single flash drive if you really want that.

I have reel-to-reel movie film

  • Please keep reel-to-reel film grouped together as well.
  • Identify the size of each reel. This will give you good ideas of both length and cost.
  • Recognize that smaller reels will be stitched together during processing to create a single longer movie. If you send eight reels about three inches in diameter (which is about 50 feet per reel), you will receive back one single reel of 400 feet, stitched together. Your DVDs will have several files on them that can be played as a single longer movie.
  • Reel-to-reel movies, by definition, did not have any sound. There won’t be any audio on your DVD when you receive it.

I have documents and/or books

  • Grouping is critical, because we create searchable PDF files from the groups.
  • Labeling the groups is also critical; these labels will be the names of the files.
  • Remove as many staples, paper clips, binding clips, etc. as possible while maintain the integrity of the groups. We have to charge for all the unbinding and we will keep things in groups but we do not normally rebind items. This saves you money.
  • Leave detailed instructions. A lot of what we get are old letters. And legal documents. The majority of our phone calls with customers during the processing phase involve document orders.

Got It! Now What?

OK … I’ve done everything listed above and I’m ready to box it and ship it.

You need to get a sturdy box and tape it securely at the bottom and sides.

There is no such thing as too much tape concerning your precious memories.

Once you’ve placed everything in the box, we strongly recommend filling in the gaps with bubble wrap or old newspapers … anything that will keep the memories from shifting.

Most importantly, you should include a note to us with a few basic details:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Phone Number
  • Email
  • Guesstimated quantities (number of photos, slides, etc.)
  • Resolution (for photos and scrapbooks only)
  • Folder instructions
  • Deliverable device types (DVD, Flash Drives, Dropbox) you would like

You would be surprised at how many boxes we receive that don’t have names, numbers, and email.

The process and overall experience will be far better if you give us this basic information at the beginning.

Once everything is boxed up tightly and securely, it’s ready to be taken to the Post Office, UPS, or FedEx.

98% of our customers use one of those three services to ship their packages to Memory Fortress.

Make sure you get tracking numbers after you ship your items, and please email Memory Fortress (customerservice@memoryfortress.com) or call us at 678-579-2249 to let us know your memories are on the way!
