Sony MicroMV Cassettes
The Thing that Shrunk Before Our Eyes!!
B-List horror films of the 1950s were all about science and technology run amuck. A scientist spills a beaker during a thunderstorm, a mutated creature scuttles out of a lab and, well—watch out, necking teens!
Out of the hasty experimentation with new video technologies at the turn of the century, MicroMV came squeaking onto the scene in 2001 like some genetic freak of nature. Sony MicroMV cassettes were the smallest videotape format ever introduced—70% smaller than MiniDV, in fact. They looked like they belonged in an answering machine. Made to play in some of the most compact camcorders ever made, these microscopic monsters were hardly in danger of reproducing. Sony was the only company to roll out the MicroMV format, for one. Add to that the fact that no software worked with the 12 Mbit/s MPEG-2 compression-to-tape format, except for the editing software Sony designed specifically for MicroMV. Left without options, consumers were essentially handcuffed, or thumbcuffed as the case may be.
With digital advances right around the corner, MicroMV’s days were numbered. Heck, you almost forgot about them sitting there in your sock drawer. While the videocassette tapes had gotten ever smaller, the real problem with every format before digital remains the same. Magnetic tape, be it large or small, all degrades at the same rate. Sony has long since stopped making the tapes and the recording equipment, but even so, digital technology has arrived efficiently and economically to rescue your tapes from the ticking time bomb of magnetic tape. The time is now.
Catching Aunt Helen coming out of her tent without make-up is one thing, but the real videotape horror would be if you lost any of your home video footage to time. Don’t even think about what atrocities your family might unleash on you if time erases those tapes. The Sweet 16 party, the midnight pranks, the cake fight. All that planking. Convert your MicroMV to thumb drive, digital delivery through Legacybox Cloud™ or DVD, today. Put your mind at ease, and your MicroMV camcorder out to pasture. Our technicians handle MicroMV conversion in-house every day at our studios, and we don’t even need labcoats, microscopes or goggles. We start by sending our crushproof Legacybox your way with pre-paid round-trip shipping and tracking via Fedex.

Your MicroMV tapes are safely and mundanely transferred to digital files for your computer, and we send them off to you, along with all of your original tapes. The only thing screaming will be the deal you get on converting those old MicroMV cassette tapes to memories that never fade.
