VHS to DVD: Is DIY (do it yourself) safe?

Many ways exist to copy VHS video tapes to DVD. Converting VHS to DVD is an important process because it enables you to have better access to your stored memories and also aides to preserve the content that has been stored on VHS video tapes.

The VHS format has been around since 1976. Betamax, another format for video tapes, was introduced in 1975. Many important memories such as vacations, baptisms, bar Mitzvahs, bat Mitzvahs, weddings, graduations, conferences, other family or business events, have been stored on VHS video tapes. The video tapes are degrading and some require VHS repair. Most VHS tapes have not been saved correctly and so this accelerates the degradation of the tape and to save the information on them will become harder and harder as time goes by. Also, blank VHS tapes are hard to find and new VHS players are becoming scarce. The only option to preserve the memories recorded on this format is to digitize the video. Copying VHS tapes to DVD in fact digitizes the video. You can either do that on your own or use services like ours. Doing yourself might be OK for some video tapes, but usually most video tape to DVD converters do not do a good job. Photo Experts optimizes the video signal coming from the video cassette recorder in order to get the best possible transfer quality. This cannot be achieved by using most VHS Video Tape to DVD transfer systems. We have expertise to fix most of damaged video tapes, and do many other services that you won’t be able to do it on your own.
Note that we can transform your video tapes to any format such as: QuickTime files, Blu-ray, Hard Disk, CD, or ANY other digitized format.
