Convert U-matic to Digital with Current Pixel

U-matic format was introduced to the market by Sony in September of 1971 and served as an analogue recording videocassette format that allowed you to keep the videotape inside a cassette, which was different from reel-to-reel or open-reel formats. You might notice that you have some U-matic tapes from the past, but you might also notice that revisiting this footage has become very difficult and expensive. Are U-matic Tapes Obsolete? U-matic tapes are an old tape format that has become nearly obsolete without a functional U-matic player. What’s more, if you search the web for a U-matic player, you can only find them used at extremely high prices, typically from around $600 to upwards of $2800. If you convert U-matic to digital, though, you can save money and also make sure you save the content on your U-matic tapes. At Current Pixel, we can convert U-matic to digital or even DVD to help you save your footage for greater longevity and convenience. You don’t need to spend thousands of dollars on a U-matic player that might not work for long. Instead, you can convert your U-matic tapes to digital and save the footage for years to come, keeping it safe from becoming completely unwatchable and obsolete.

Video Transfer Services – Why Technology & Experience Matter

If you have video memories you want to convert to digital files to keep them safe and viewable for years to come, you might have also pondered investing in professional video transfer services, choosing a cheaper online service, or getting the job done yourself. You do have many options available for media conversion, but not all your choices are going to necessarily get you the results you want. When you’re dealing with your precious memories, it’s important to choose a video transfer service backed by experience, stability, proper technology, superior capabilities, and the flexibility to provide you with options. You also want to think about the way a media conversion provider runs its company, because an organized company that treats its employees and customers with respect and 100 percent focus will make sure your memories are in the best possible hands. Here are some factors to keep in mind when considering a media conversation provider: Experience When you’re looking to convert your videos to digital, you want a company that employs professionals with ample experience to understand exactly how to get the job done but also how to troubleshoot potential problems.

Stability and Organization A stable and organized company will provide you with dependable service without any hassle. You have many options available to you and can even purchase some equipment to try and convert video yourself.  However, if you don’t invest a reputable company with years of experience and knowledge in the industry, the outcome...
