Transfer your films and videotapes to DVD

before it’s too late.



Most experts agree that the useful life of a video or audio tape is between ten and twenty years. This variation depends on how the tape was stored.  The cause of the decay is that the iron oxide or metal partials deposited on the tape backing loose adhesion and starts to shed. This causes the tape to stick to the VCR’s rollers and heads.  When this occurs the tape becomes damaged and the VCR must be taken apart and cleaned. 


The only solution to this preservation problem is to transfer the tape onto a current formats such as DVD.  Technical expertise is essential in this process since deterioration in the original image can occur if signal levels are not properly set or the tape deck is not properly maintained.
