[ How It Works ]
View Your Special Moments Again
Smaller than their VHS counterparts, 8mm tapes were released at around the same time as Sony’s Handycam — a match made in home movie heaven! The first 8mm tape format, Video 8, was later succeeded by the superior Hi8 in 1989 and Digital 8 in 1999.
If you were lucky enough to have been around during this revolutionary time for video, there is a chance you are the proud owner of a collection of videotapes full of home movie memories. Unfortunately, there is also a good chance that you no longer own the equipment required to play 8mm tapes. The good news is that a video transfer service can bring these memories back to life in digital format where they can be watched and shared over and over again.
Hi8 and Digital8: A Brief History
The 8mm video format consists of three different tape formats: Video 8 (analog recording), Hi8 (analog recording with provision for digital audio) and Digital 8 (digital recording). Measuring 2.5 inches tall and 4 inches wide, it is easy to see why these compact tapes make such an impression on the consumer market. Simply pop a couple in your camera bag, and you were good for at least two hours of footage!
Bring Your 8mm Moments Back to Life
By transferring all of your Hi8 and Digital8 moments using a digital video transfer service, you can free them from their almost obsolete home and bring them right up to date in the digital world. From weddings to birthdays and family holidays to dance recitals, using a video transfer service will ensure you preserve these priceless and precious moments for future generations to enjoy.
The Merits of Using a Professional Video Transfer Service
A professional video transfer service can convert all of your 8mm tapes to a format that can be played back on a wealth of devices, including mobile phones, tablets, computers, and the TV. All tapes are transferred using the highest-quality players to ensure optimal playback quality. There is also a good chance that tapes you cannot play on your own equipment can be converted. Your original tapes will, of course, be returned to you in the same condition in which they were received.
