Tape & Film Transfers

It’s no secret that magnetic media deteriorates with time.  And, many of us don’t have the devices to play our old VHS, Hi-8, Mini DV or even audio cassettes anymore.  Whatever format you have we can transfer your media and stop the fade today!

  • We can transfer almost any format including 8mm, Super 8mm, 16mm films as well as VHS, VHS-C, Hi-8, Digital 8, Mini DV, audio cassettes, DAT, LP and more!
  • Your preference, we can give you back playable media on CD/DVD or an editable .MP3/.MP4 file, or both!
  • Custom packaging and duplication are easy ways to make a finished project ready to share.
