There is a lot of those fun family moments that we caught on video over the years and I bet that is the same with you. This is all great, but it can be problematic to watch old videos. Specially if you shot it with 8mm, 9.5mm or 16mm tape. If your old camera or projector doesn't work anymore, it's almost impossible to watch those videos.

What Is Video Transfer?

If you have old home videos of christenings, birthdays, weddings or just random family videos on VHS, 8mm, 9.5mm or 16mm cine, then you probably can't watch it anymore. What you can do is to take it to video transfer service that will turn them into digital version on put on DVD.

They use so called "transvideo" process to transfer video from cine to DVD. They can't copy it directly from VHS tapes or projector, so they hook it on CCD imaging technology to make best quality copies possible.

After you put all that time and money for video transfer from cine to DVD, it's time to make some copies and share it with your family of friends. I pretty sure they would love a copy. To do that, you will need some empty DVDs. You can also get empty cases to protect that copies.
