No matter if it’s about the first steps of your childeren, the wedding of your best friend or unforgettable moments of vacations: Many videos were recorded on VHS at that time and are now stored away in cabinets or drawers. This is too bad, since these recordings are not only unique memories – they are also in danger!

Durability of video cassettes

Besser VHS Kassetten digitalisieren lassen

You shouldn’t hesitate to convert your VHS, because they only hold up to about 20 years. From this point first signs of age appear. Even if you store our old VHS correctly, they will not last much longer.

  • Flickering image, droning sound: Playing the cassette wears out the tape. Correct storage will let your VHS last for 35 years at best. That’s why all VHS tapes that were recorded in the 90s, are in danger.
  • Danger by external magnetization. The geomagnetic field and storing near other electronic devices will let the colors fade. In the worst case your recordings will be deleted.
  • Difficult storage. Best would be to store your video cassettes at temperatures between 11 and 17°C and a humidity between 30 and 50 %. In reality it will be quite difficult to achieve these values.
  • No video recorders available. Even if your video cassettes are still in good condition, it doesn’t mean you can play them, since video recorders are not available cheap.

Can my recordings be improved afterwards?

Yes, with our post-processing service we can reduce noise, artefacts and improve colors and contrast.

For a 90 minute cassette about 6.5 GB disk space is needed. For a S-VHS or Betamax cassettes it will be about double the size.

Why is saving as MP4 files so expensive?

Converting to MP4 files and quality control take much longer than converting to DVD. This expense leads to higher costs.

Why can S-VHS cassettes only be converted to MP4 files?

S-VHS already use a digital format and therefore only can be converted to MP4.

How can I edit the videos by myself afterwards?

There are many free programs that will serve this purpose. The only requirement is converting to MP4 files.
