Media Conversion

If you have any VHS video cassettes, Mini DV, Hi-8, VHS-C, Audio Cassettes, Minidiscs, Negatives in 110, 126 or 33mm we can transfer any of these into digital media so that they do not degrade and become unwatchable, unlistenable and unviewable.  Minidiscs do not degrade however but conversion may be an option you may find beneficial to you.  Please send an email or give us a call with any questions you may have about the above services.


VHS Video Cassettes


VHS was a brilliant idea many years ago when recordings were fresh and when they were watched the pictures were quite reasonable.  However, if you have not stored your cassettes in an upright position or in a cool dry place you may be in for quite a surprise if you choose to play them again.  The cassettes often only last for about 15 years and tend to degrade from there on.

If you have any VHS cassettes of things as family recordings taken from a camcorder and such then don't leave it too late otherwise you may lose your precious recordings forever.  We can restore and attempt to enhance anything if the recording is borderline unviewable.  It depends on how well the cassettes have been stored.  We will try our upmost to help recover any recordings for you and transfer them to DVD, Blu-ray, USB or hard drive so you can back them up and never lose them.  Please feel free to send any emails and we will endeavour to help in any way we can.



Mini DV, Hi-8 and VHS-C Cassettes
