Video cassettes are limited in durability

Save your recordings, before quality starts to suffer. According to the manufacturer’s specification, tapes will hold for a maximum period of 35 years, but they start to show signs of age much earlier. With time image and audio quality get worse, until there is only noise left. Incorrect storage conditions will support this effect.

These factors affect durability of your video cassettes:

  • Crinkles in the tape. Video cassettes should be rewound before storage and kept upright in their case to protect them from dust. If they lie on top of each other, the tapes can start to lower on the reel and get crinkles.
  • Heat can let the tapes melt. Heat and cold attack the coating layer of the magnetic tapes. If they are exposed to direct sunlight, the tapes can even melt. Furthermore temperature fluctuations can make the tapes stretch and contract.
  • Beware of humidity. A lot of people store their video cassettes in the cellar, where there is high humidity, which starts to condense in the cassettes and damages the tapes. hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit, die in den Kassetten kondensiert und die Bänder beschädigt. There is also a danger for mould.
  • Magnetic fields delete your recordings. If you store your video cassettes near electronic gadgets like speakers or TVs, it can end in a catastrophy. External magnetization can weaken the recordings, in the worst case even delete them completely. Natural earth magnetism can already do damage.
  • Beginning decay can form smudge films. If the tapes start to decay, residues can smudge the tape. You then can’t play the tapes anymore and they can damage the recorder.
