Video in the Digital Age

In 2008, we saw the end of an era in home video, JVC announced that they were no longer making standalone VCR units.  The VCR which used to be the standard in home entertainment in the 70s, 80s and early 90s is done.

If you’ve still got a stack of VHS tapes, don’t worry. Since this was such a popular format of the time, there will still be players available second-hand and through resources like eBay for many years to come. If you have old VHS tapes, please store them in a cool place that is free of humidity that can cause mold.  Yes folks, we have seen tapes stuck together because of heat.  We have also seen mold growing on tapes.  If it gets that far, there is nothing that can be done to save them.

 

With digital TV, and digital formats like DVD and Blu-ray, VHS is going to have less and less reach as time goes on.  This is yet another sign that the age of digital video is firmly upon us.  If you haven’t done so already, convert your VHS to DVD or better yet a digital format.  Digital formats include Quicktime (primarily for Mac computers) and AVI (primarily for PC computers).  One advantage to “going digital” is that you can edit your footage.  That way you can cut out scenes that you do not want. (i.e. 30 minutes of the camera recording with the lens cap on).

If you need your VHS tapes converted to a digital format, CC Video Duplication would be honored to be your conversion expert. If you want further information on our services, please click on the links below:
