Why choose us for your VHS, Betamax & camcorder video tape to DVD & USB transfers?

The constant changes in digital technologies have left many of the old analogue video formats gathering dust, along with our memories trapped on VHS, Betamax & Camcorder video tapes.

Many of us have VHS, Betamax & camcorder video tapes of treasured family events, special occasions, holiday adventures and of our children growing up. VHS, Betamax & camcorder video tape although good in years gone by can deteriorate, losing some of the original quality, sometimes snagging in the player or worse still snapping altogether. Losing your memories for ever can be a heartbreaking experience.

We also repair video tapes. Check out our
video tape repair page.


You may think that your analogue VHS, Betamax & camcorder video tapes are safe for the future stored on a shelf or in a drawer. However, analogue magnetic video tape deteriorates over time. External magnetic forces and changes in atmospheric conditions all contribute towards their degradation. The only sure way to preserve your video tapes for the future is to have them digitally transferred to a USB flash drive or to DVD.

By transferring your analogue video tapes to the DVD or MP4 format you will be able to play them on your computer or on your DVD player at home or even in your car without any loss of quality.
