Transfer VCR to DVD
“Let’s go out and buy a new VHS tape!” said nobody in the last ten years. But this is more than a matter of cool. Time is erasing your family legacy.
If you are still hanging on to home videos you or your family made in the 1980s and 1990s, chances are they are VHS video cassette tapes, the most prolific format from the camcorder era. The videotapes measure one inch thick, seven inches wide, and four inches tall (the size of a stapler or a small book). Remember renting movies from video stores? Those were VHS tapes.
After a brief battle with Betamax for home recording and viewing supremacy in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the VHS (Video Home System) videocassette tape became the premier home video recording and viewing format through the end of the 20th century. The novelty and affordability of capturing memories on hand-held camcorders and watching them back on VCRs led to practically every home in America slowly amassing stacks and stacks (and stacks) of VHS tapes.
With the invention of the sturdier, more compact, longer-lasting higher-quality digital format, the VHS tape’s days were numbered, and believe me, it was a small number. While you probably knew as much, in the back of your mind you thought, “Someday I will watch all those VHS tapes again.” How is that working out for you? Don’t run out and look for new VCRs. They have all but disappeared from store shelves. And 20 years later, feeding your old tapes into the teeth of a predatory VCR might result in a little less discovery and a little more Discovery Channel.
But we’ve got an even more grisly reality to warn you about. Without converting those VHS tapes to digital—like NOW—the information on them will soon be lost forever: the toddler self-haircuts, the home run swings, the pillow fights, all the princess parties, vacations, graduations, and celebrations. The tape inside those cartridges already began breaking down at the 15 year mark. Your family history is deteriorating as we speak—but chances are you can get all or most of that forever back by transferring those memories to digital. How does one transfer VCR tapes to digital? Who can safely copy those old tapes to digital? Where do videotapes get converted? We’re glad you asked.
Our VHS to thumb drive, digital delivery through Legacybox Cloud™ or DVD transfer service prides itself on handling your precious memories easily and efficiently, and we stay in touch with you throughout the whole process. Thousands of VHS tapes are safely digitized and converted to Digital in our studio by our technicians every day. We start by sending you a crushproof Legacybox with pre-paid Fedex shipping and tracking (both ways). After everything is transferred to thumb drive, digital delivery through Legacybox Cloud™ or DVD, we return all of your original tapes. Your family is going to scream and jump up and down. Are you ready to be a hero by giving them the best gift ever?
