Home Movie Transfer: Revisit Family Memories for Years to Come

Most of us look back at old family memories and wish we had digital cameras to capture those memories with easy access and viewing and without the possibility of the tape getting warped or ruined by an old VHS player. The great news is: it is entirely possible to transfer your old home movies from VHS to digital files or even DVD to give you easy and convenient access to them and ensure they stay safe from harm. Whether you have a collection of VHS tapes collecting dust in boxes or getting lost in a cabinet, or an antiquated home movie format that you vaguely remember how to play, the best way to preserve family memories is with professional home movie transfer services. Common Home Movie Types Worth Transferring Some of the most common video media types on which you might have home movies include VHS, VHS-C, Video8, Hi8, Digital8, MiniDV, Mini DVD, MicroMV, Betamax, Betacam, and U-matic 3/4″.

Luckily, Current Pixel is Atlanta’s go-to for providing home movie transfer services! At Current Pixel, we have experienced staff with knowledge of all the different videotape formats, and we will complete your order without ever outsourcing to a third party. We also...
