If you want to convert old videotapes to digital on your own, then a digital converter machine is the best option.

There are different types, but most are targeted to tech-savvy users who already know how to use a Mac or Windows computer.

In addition, some may require adapters and you will still need a VCR, camcorder, or other playback device.

Tape durations vary, but most tapes are 2 hours or less. If your tape is longer than 2 hours, we will invoice you for additional footage in 2-hour increments.

If your videotape case is damaged, it must be repaired in order to process the tape. We will automatically repair your case as part of our process; there is no charge for this service. If your videotape ribbon is damaged, it will also require repair before processing. If repair involves removing any portion of your footage, we will contact you for approval prior to repair.

The transfer price for your custom order includes a Digital Copy and MemoryCloud access, where you can view, download, order copies, and save your memories to Google Photos.

For video transfers, the price also includes videotape repairs (case replacement and ribbon splicing), mold cleaning, and PAL format conversion.

Video transfers preserve the quality of your footage as it appears on the tape.
