Common Questions and Concerns
I do not know what’s on my tapes, or if they are half full – blank or if they are still playable?
No problem, this is not unusual with many of our clients. Give us a ring and we can explain how we handle these concerns.
DVD or USB?
We can provide either format or both formats together. But be aware, DVD’s are now considered OLD technology and do not offer the same conveniences or flexibility as USB in terms of editing, file sharing, backups & uploading to the cloud whereby your family and friends can view your stored video memories from anywhere in the world these days.
Best to call us to discuss the best option that suites your needs.
Can I edit and copy my USB’s and DVD’s?
The short answer is yes, but best to speak with us about it further as there are some things that you need to know such as … file formats, appropriate software to use, etc.
Tape Transfer Quality …
I can assure you of this; we will do our VERY BEST to achieve the highest quality video tape conversion possible … or your money back!
However please understand, we are limited by your tape’s age and condition and can only get a result that is as good as what you give to us to start with.
To this regard we provide GUARANTEES, displayed on our website.
CAUTION … ARE YOUR TAPES 20 YEARS … OR OLDER? ARE THEY HEADED FOR THE DREADED BIN?
Based on 29 years of hands-on experience, working with old video tapes, we found that VHS and Camera tapes (such as MiniDV, 8mm, Digital8, VHS-C, Hi8) often start to age around the 15+ year mark. A significant problem in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast is … MOLD and FUNGUS! Mold is visible whilst fungus is not. Both can destroy a tape if left … to Mother Nature.
Other common signs of video age deterioration include: “snow bands”, “picture flicker” or simply “loss of sharpness” as your tapes age. The good news is that MOLD and FUNGUS can usually be removed from tapes, however “snow bands” and “picture flicker” … cannot! Where tapes are cleanly snapped or have broken cases … these are fixable.
If your tapes are approaching 20 years or older … keep your fingers crossed that they are still transferable, because preying will not help you on this one!
So, let’s assume your memories are precious … and you of course want the BEST VIDEO TRANSFER possible at the LOWEST PRICE … my advice is … do not delay … it’s not in your best interest as repairs can be costly and memories irreplaceable!
How can your tapes best avoid the dreaded bin?
By acting Now … before it’s too late. Plus you will hopefully save money by avoiding unnecessary, costly repairs, which are unavoidable if you leave it too long.
Give us a ring or complete our enquiry form to find out how you can take advantage of our SPECIAL 2 For 1 OFFER. We are standing by to answer any of your questions … up to 6:00 pm tonight.
We look forward to speaking with you soon.
