Hi8 Tape to DVD or Digital (MP4)

To offset the introduction of the Super-VHS tape format, Sony introduced Video Hi8 tape. Like S-VHS, the Hi8 tape was used to increase the recorded bandwidth of the luminance signal to 400 lines. Hi8 cassettes were widespread throughout the 90s because of their compact size and quality. Especially because they could fit into a camcorder for home video recording. Unfortunately, Hi8 players are not in the mainstream anymore. Consequently, it is increasingly difficult to watch movies in this format. With tape degrading over time, the best way to preserve the memories they hold is to convert Hi8 to DVD or digital.

I Think My Tape Could Be Blank, Will I Be Charged?

Nope, we charge each tape individually regardless of content time. So one tape could be 30 mins long and another 8 hours long but you’ll be charged accordingly!
