HI8 to DVD in Boston, MA

HI8-to-DVD_HI8 Tape and logoIntroduced in the late 80’s, HI8 was an improvement over Video 8 technology. The lines, or resolution, were almost doubled and the audio recording system was also improved. For the end customer it meant better video images and better sound quality.

As with all magnetic tapes, HI8 has its share of problems. Over time, the tapes have a tendency to become sticky and start jamming their playback units. As a worse case scenario, the tapes become brittle and snap. HI8 to DVD is a service designed to transfer your HI8 tape format. If you are still holding on to these tapes, now is the time to convert them to DVD

Preserve your family video legacy for the next generation.
