I bet a good deal of people have boxes in their lofts or attics full of old VHS tapes or Betamax tapes or even cine film, degrading and gathering dust. Those tapes and films are bound to be full of wonderful memories from days gone; the kids growing up, pets that have passed on; and perhaps family members no longer with us. If you’re struggling to find a way to watch them again, then we have a solution.
Our professional service is simple and also bespoke. Our business can convert those old VHS tapes or Betamax tapes to a digital format that works with your modern devices. We utilise a simple transfer process which converts your VHS tapes to DVD. We can also convert all other major formats, such as Mini DV, Super 8 and cine film.
I imagine, like most people, you have hours and hours of video footage. It probably spans a number of years. Well, it gets better. We also offer a home video editing service. Our business can handle your video to DVD transfer (plus other formats), and then edit the footage into a watchable film.
We thought we were at the peak of technology when we were using our camcorders, and could never imagine a day when they became obsolete. I remember quite clearly thinking at the peak of camcorder usage, that my shiny new camera was the bees knees and the formats would be around forever. I didn’t even consider the fact that tape can degrade and fail.
Sound familiar? When you think of all the devices we use today, smartphones especially, and how easy it is to take it out of your pocket and start filming or taking photos. The digital format that we film in today is technology at its most transferable. Before that, using tapes, uploading to your computer from tapes in real time – that was a long process.
Hands up how many of you still have a VHS video player? Obviously we do 🙂 Or what about cinefilm? We even offer a cinefilm to DVD or USB transfer service too. There’s no format we can’t handle.
Using a video to DVD transfer service like ours, is going to make this process really easy for you. It’s probably something that you’ve been meaning to do for ages too. We offer a really user friendly service, and we really value the memories that we can bring back to life for you. We take good care of your old VHS or Betamax tapes, or many other formats (super 8, mini dv, cinefilm etc) and do our very best to help you experience those memories again.

Luke is remarkable and the service he offers is wonderful. At last my family and I can see our old cine films which he has digitised.Thank you, it is worth every penny!
If you are considering conversion of VHS (or any other format) to digital movies, this is the service you need to engage. Results were amazing; thank you.
Luke did a fine job of making a film of our family from four hours of somewhat random footage. He created a narrative arc, gave it pace, included funny moments and reflective moments, understanding what mattered and what didn’t. We watched it and we laughed and then we cried. I’m enormously grateful for what he…
