Video to DVD Transfers
Many people have treasured memories stored away on Video Tape whether
it be VHS or other camcorder formats.
Magnetic tape when stored at normal room temperature can start to deteriorate
as early as 10 years from the original recording and therefore it is
important to transfer the footage as soon as possible before losing
Broadcasters and other Archive Libraries can extend the storage time
because they use very stringent Temperature and Humidity control equipment
to help stabilise the chemical structure of the tape itself, however,
even these organisations have to think about copying the tapes over
to new formats from around 25 years or so because the tape is not expected
to last beyond 30 years without severe deterioration problems being
introduced and valuable recordings eventually lost forever.
