If you’re like most people, you probably have a number of old videotapes lying around your home. Unfortunately those analog tapes won’t last forever. Much like the memories contained on them, they will eventually fade away. With help from us, you can transfer all your old home video to DVD and save your aging media from extinction.
All VHS and camcorder tapes use magnetic tape to record an analog signal. Magnetic tape consists of a magnetic pigment within a binder. Magnetic particles within the pigment store all the video information. Over time the binder loses its integrity and begins to degrade. Resulting in severe image distortion and permanent information loss.
Studies have shown that VHS and video tape quality can deteriorate to an unplayable condition in as little as ten years even under ideal conditions. Furthermore, quality is lost each and every time your video tape is played.
Those analog tapes you have laying around at home won’t last forever! Now is the time to have a video to DVD conversion stop the degradation process. Unlike magnetic tape, digital files do not degrade over time. At Icehouse Pictures we specialize in preserving your memories digitally on DVD. A DVD is a permanent way to guarantee a future for those irreplaceable memories. The sooner you transfer your video to DVD the better chance you have of preserving them. Contact us today!
