Video Transfer

Updated on August 8, 2013

Do You Have Old Family Videos?

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. After all, this days everything is digital and you can't just get old technology anymore.

The solution for this video transfer. Video transfer service can make a digital copy of your old videos and put it on DVD. How cool is that? This service makes it possible to watch old family movies on computer or DVD player.

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.

Make Copies - Share it with family and friends.

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.

Oh No, My Video Is Damaged

We have some of those videos around the house for years and we often move them from one part of the house to another. It's not unusual for them to get damaged. But don't worry, they can be saved. Well, at least in most cases.

If you take your video to video transfer service, they can save most of your damaged videos. Even if your videos are defected, they can be saved. They can also adjust contrast and brightness, and correct tone and color. If needed, then can also edit video and add intros and titles.
