Video & Film Transfer for High Schools, Colleges, & Universities

Many high schools, colleges, and universities have an archive of old videotapes and film from various sporting events or other campus functions. That archive could be full of important memories for the school or ways for various programs to benefit from past knowledge and event structures. The problem is that finding ways to view and safely store old videotapes and film is getting more and more difficult as these media types become obsolete. Moreover, both film and videotapes deteriorate over time, threatening to destroy campus archives forever. Maybe your school wants to go over old football or other sports footage to understand how to get a team back to its heyday.

Or maybe your school wants to put together a video to celebrate a milestone in the campus’s history.

Cabinets, drawers, and boxes full of old videotapes are also full of wonderful memories. However, sometimes those memories can taunt you when you realize videotapes are becoming outdated.

Videotapes do deteriorate over time and are susceptible to damage from any number of accidents or misplacements. Meanwhile, videotape players are becoming harder and harder to come by. Of course you want to keep your memories safe, and you want to be able to watch them again, so why not transfer those videotapes to DVD?

VHS Tape Lifespan: Do VHS Tapes Deteriorate?

If you have a stack of old VHS tapes in your home or even in your company’s storage facility, you might have wondered how long your memories and footage on those VHS tapes will last. At Current Pixel, our experience has shown that VHS tapes deteriorate over time no matter how they are stored. The magnetic tape inside makes the VHS tape lifespan shorter as the tape itself deteriorates.  Even tapes stored in professional tape storage environments will still experience some deterioration, and of course the overwhelming majority of tapes are not stored in perfect environments.   VHS Tape Deterioration Rate Although the VHS life expectancy varies from one VHS tape to the next, VHS tapes have been found to deteriorate 10 to 20 percent over the course of 10 to 25 years. Tapes that were made with better quality will have a slightly longer lifespan, and of course if you have kept your VHS tapes in a climate controlled space with optimal temperature and conditions with minimal to no use, they will last a lot longer. However, your favorite VHS tapes are likely the tapes you have viewed many, many times, making them deteriorate more quickly, and most of us do not have the ability to store VHS tapes perfectly. VHS tapes at home are subject to dust and can start to degrade as a result of tape-eating bacteria and deterioration from the elements. Digitize Your VHS Tapes to DVD Your memories are too precious to leave up to chance or even to slight deterioration. If you want to keep your VHS tape footage safe, your best option...
