Let us convert your video tapes at optimum quality!

You probably associate your old VHS tapes with Hollywood blockbusters from the 90s, but even then it was the time of the first steps of your own children, weddings or other special events recorded in the moving image. At that time, the short life of this format was not foreseeable. It’s not just the fear of shredded tape, but the loss of quality of the videos. In addition to moisture, heat and dust, magnetic radiation in particular is responsible for the fact that the condition of the cassettes deteriorates over the years. The only way to stop this decay and save your memories for the future is to transfer the video to DVD.
