Vintage Video Tapes
We transfer vintage video tapes to DVD, Tape, raw AVI or MPEG2. We can also help restore the video that may have been damaged or improperly shot including incorrect exposures, age, color loss, and more. Let us add ambience to your video with titles, transitions and music.
 
The first video tapes were open reel to reel (not in a cassette). Ampex produced the the popular 2 inch Quadruplex in mid-1950's and then in the late 60's & early 70's 1/2 inch EIAJ, 1 inch Type "C" and the first popular cassette the 3/4 inch U-Matic came on to the market. More information on vintage tapes and videotape history can be found here and here.
