Did you know that every time you watch and rewind your videotapes, you could actually be destroying them? The average life of videotape is 15 to 20 years depending on how often they were played. Even if you’re just keeping them but never watching them, they are degrading. This means your most precious family memories are literally fading away! Once your videos are transferred you and your family can share the memories of baby’s first steps, weddings, graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, and all the wonderful milestones of your lives again and again.

PRICES SUBJECT TO CHANGE BASED ON SEASONAL DEMAND AND COMPLETION TIME
Will my old videotapes degrade and become un-viewable?
Depends on storage conditions and age of tapes. It can also be difficult to find or hookup a VCR machine to play tapes back on, especially with newer TV’s.
Where will I get the best service and quality?
From an experienced professional, like Florida Digital Studios who does all work in its own secure commercial lab. Avoid work at home providers, and anyone who does not do the work on their commercial premises.
Once the transfer is done, are extra DVD copies expensive?
Not at all! At Florida Digital Studios we charge $5 per copy. It is always good to have backups and copies for friends or family members. Florida Digital Studios also offers custom printing right on the DVD’s plus a variety of cases and albums for convenient storage.
Do I still get my original videotapes back and should I save them?
They are always returned. OK discard if you have extra copies of the DVD’s.
Will converting to DVD make my old videotapes look better?
No. It will be an exact copy of what is on the tape. But much easier to watch and locate your favorite sections. DVD quality will not degrade.
If DVD’s break or crack over time will I lose everything?
You would, but by using Florida Digital Studios transfer service, you can request they use scratch and breakable resistant DVD media, or request additional copies, or transfer media to a hard drive.
Is there any other way to store my priceless personal media?
Short clips may be cloud stored with some services. But the most practical and cost-effective is to convert DVD’s to digital files and store them on a hard drive. Florida Digital Studios offers this service.
