The “VHS” Generations
In 1977, for the first time ever, American families had the ability to watch movies on-demand with the release of an innovative Japanese invention – the VHS tape. As major theatrical films began entering homes on these magnetic reels to be enjoyed again and again, parents and grandparents also started to become filmmakers. Consumer camcorders captured the most precious family moments of the 1980s and 90s. But in the late 90s and early 2000s, DVDs rendered VHS tapes obsolete. The last VHS player was produced in 2016 and now tapes with precious family memories are not only gathering dust, but are quickly deteriorating with time.
Our job to preserve your family’s memories for future generations by converting your old tapes to DVD or digital files. Unlike magnetic tape, which has a life span measured in years, properly stored DVDs can last for up to a century. Digital files are even more resilient and can be copied from device to device without any loss of quality.
If you have memories stuck on old VHS tapes, Hi-8, VHS-C and SVHS, now is the time to relive those old memories. Experience the excitement of watching your loved ones grow up again and reliving important moments. Best of all, you’ll be able to share these memories with younger generations – perhaps for the first time!
