There’s a reason why so many individuals are taking the time to convert beta tapes to DVD and digital formats. These near obsolete video tapes peaked in popularity about forty years ago. And while beta tapes (Betamax and Betacam) are rapidly declining, those who still own these tapes are privy to preserving their content.
Beta Tapes: Betamax vs. Betacam
Betamax was released in 1975 and is now considered to be the first home video format that began the home video making craze. While it lasted for about five years, it was soon replaced by the VHS tape format. Betamax recorders have not been produced since 2002, but Betamax tapes were still available for purchase up until March 2016 when they were completely taken off the market, leaving people with Betamax tapes wondering how to watch their content and keep it safe from deterioration and potential disaster.
Meanwhile, Betacam, which is the professional-grade sibling of Betamax, was mostly used for location video work beginning in 1982, and though it lasted longer as a dependable professional video recording format, its tapes are just as fragile as Betacam and are not designed to last for many decades. Don’t let discoloration or sound disruption ruin your Betamax or Betacam tapes: convert these video tapes to DVD or digital files, and keep your video content safe and accessible.
