Convert Hi8 to Digital

You say goodbye, and I say hello.

                     

Hi-8 may very well sound like a greeting, a nutritional energy drink, or a celebratory palm slap among mutants, but believe me, the positivity has positively gone away. Say goodbye to those slowly disintegrating Hi8 tapes and say hello to pristine new “forever copies” of your video memories when you convert Hi8 tapes to digital using our Legacybox Hi8 to digital service.

In 1985, Sony introduced the Handycam, and everybody with tired arms lifted them one more time to applaud. The Video8 analog video/audio format helped make video cameras smaller and more functional than the bulky VHS and Betamax recorders that had held court until then. Hi8 was an upgrade to the analog format by virtue of making provision for digital audio. The “8” references the 8mm video tape (Betamax tapes were 12mm) and the “hi” references to the higher quality in a breezy good-to-meet-you sort of way.

Do you have any Hi-8 tapes? About the size of a deck of playing cards, they are half an inch thick, 2 ½ inches wide, and just under 4 inches tall. They were just cute enough to hang onto forever and forget about once they went up into the attic or into back of the closet. How could you have known that forever had a time limit? But it’s true. The magnetic Hi-8 tapes of the late 1980s and early 1990s disintegrating rapidly. They will quickly turn into “Lo-8” tapes, and if you don’t transfer them to digital immediately, will sadly become a box full of “No-8”s before you know it. They don’t make the tapes anymore, they don’t make the cameras anymore, and I think it is safe to assume that nobody is going to give you a refund when you discover your hi 8 tapes have been erased by time, and with them the proof of your belly flop contest victory over uncle Blob.

Our Hi8 to digital transfer service will greet you at the door with a smile and never break eye contact (our way of saying we will stay in touch with you throughout the whole process). Thousands of tapes are safely digitized and converted to thumb drive, digital delivery through Legacybox Cloud™ or DVD in our studio by our technicians every day. We start the process by sending you a crushproof Legacybox with pre-paid Fedex shipping and tracking (both ways). After everything is transferred both to digital, we return all of your original tapes, so you never have to truly say goodbye. But what you will be saying hello to are lasting new quality recordings in a compact format, and very possibly the glory that comes along with repeated viewings of your belly flop contest over Uncle Blob.
