Your VHS Tapes Are On Borrowed Time!

The age of VHS has long been over. This doesn’t come as much of a surprise, considering the astonishing lack of VCRs in production these days. The problem with living in a world where the technology is always evolving is that our keepsakes don’t evolve along with it. If you grew up any time before this millennium, most of your memories were probably in the form of photographs and video tapes, and if you’re anything like some of the guests we’ve helped here at AM Tech Video, you probably have boxes of these mementos sitting around and gathering dust.

The problem with this is that we’re finding more and more that VHS tapes just aren’t holding up anymore. It’s very common that we have an order brought in where the picture is really jumpy or the sound is dropping out completely. While tapes will get worn out over time the more they’re played, DVDs can play over and over without any loss in quality, so long as they’re kept properly.

If you don’t want to lose your precious memories forever, now is the time to get them transferred to a more reliable format! Bring them in to us here at AM Tech Video to see what we can do for you, or visit our website at www.CameraTransfers.com!

Foreign Conversions

Have friends around the world? Have they tried to send you a DVD or old tape and you can’t watch it? It’s most likely in their country’s video format. We here at AM Tech Video can convert them to the US standard NTSC which will allow you to view them in your home. Different countries in the world film and view video in other formats. This can be frustrating. You might think something is wrong with the video, but don’t worry, it’s just the format. Bring in your foreign videos and we can convert them for you. We can also convert them into non-US formats if you are interested in sending a friend in another country a video!
