Frequently Asked Questions

There are options to transfer videotapes to digital yourself including camcorder recording and digital converters, but these options often don’t produce high-quality results. In addition, even the best do-it-yourself options can be time-consuming and require some technical knowledge.
1. Once we receive your priceless home videos, we will carefully clean them, check for damage, and scan through the video.

2. Then, we use professional-grade equipment to transfer your memories to digital format by hand.

3. Before sending the original and digital copies back to you, we inspect the color and quality and save a backup to ensure your memories are never lost and appear exactly as you remember them.
Like Capture, most video transfer service offerings are available online. You may find local shops near you. However, more often than not, they are small mom-and-pop shops with a limited reputation and niche service offerings.

If you prefer to engage in these services locally, consider trying any of the major retailers like Walmart, Sam’s Club, CVS, and Costco. These retailers offer video transfer services fulfilled by Capture, which means they offer the same high-quality results. Walmart and CVS, specifically offer the option to physically drop off your memories instead of shipping them.
