Why Digitize Old Video Tapes and Film Now?

There are urgent reasons to digitize your video tape and film content. These old media items don’t last forever, even when well-stored. Magnetic tapes, celluloid film and other materials deteriorate over time. Your entire archive could be wiped out in a flood, fire, hurricane, freeze or other natural disaster. Moreover, the drives, projectors and other playback systems for old tapes and film formats are no longer produced, most have worn out, and those still in operation will begin to fail, with limited or no replacement parts or service available.

Digitizing preserves your film and tapes, and allows this content to be easily viewed, edited, repurposed, uploaded, shared and safely backed up in the cloud. Converting to digital allows your content to be revitalized for current and future generations.
