Today, everything is going digital… HDTV, digital cameras, CD’s, and DVD’s. Digital technology allows you to compress and store information at a high quality level and conveniently access your information almost instantly. Today, DVD is big, but it wasn’t long ago that VHS was king. Did you know that before video, the home movie was shot on real film? 8mm, super 8mm, and 16mm film were all the rage from the 1940’s through the 1970’s.
Today a lot of film sits stored in attics, closets, and garages. Besides not being seen and appreciated, this film can actually be deteriorating. Over the years the color fades, and film becomes brittle. It’s true that they don’t make projectors for it anymore, but Video Memories has specialized equipment to transfer those old home movies to DVD for you to enjoy, share, and preserve. You may have tried transferring your film yourself but shooting it off a wall or through a mirror box can be less than satisfying. Dim images, loss of color, and flicker can spoil the transfer.
At Video Memories, transferring your home movies is not an automated process. It involves a skilled technician, the latest in digital technology, and professional equipment to capture every frame. We add light instrumental background music, at no extra charge, while transferring it to DVD. The result is a professionally mastered video for you to enjoy and share for years to come. We have been transferring film since 1983. We value your film and treat it with care through the entire process.
Sharing your old home movies with those that you love has never been easier. Transfers make great gifts for birthdays, Mothers Day, Christmas, or any special occasion. Additional DVD copies are inexpensive and make great gifts. Gather up your home movies and talk with one of our experts. Estimates are free!
