Why You Should Let Us Convert Your Camcorder Tapes to USB

If you were in the habit of recording family films in the 80s or 90s, then chances are you have some camcorder tapes lying around. These tapes contain precious memories of your family growing up, and no one can watch them unless they have a working camcorder lying around that can be plugged into the TV. It’s a long process that most people will not bother with and requires you to have specific technology and cables that you might not own anymore.

Disadvantages of VHS Tapes

History of the VHS Tape

The VHS (Video Home System) was a major contributor to the television industry from the 1970s until the mid-2000s. It created the home video industry and completely transformed the economics of the motion picture and television business. It fought its way through a format war to come out victorious and enjoyed a successful stint as the dominant home video format through the tape media period before digital came along.

Can You Still Buy VHS Players?

If your VCR (videocassette recorder) is coming to the end of its life, you may be wondering where to get a new one. You have no doubt noticed that no tech shops sell VHS players anymore, but can you still get them anywhere?

The History of Stop Motion Animation

Stop motion is a popular form of filmmaking involving manipulating physical objects in tiny increments between individually photographed frames to make it appear that they are moving by themselves when the frames are played back. It allows any object to be animated, but the most popular forms use puppets or plasticine figures (known commonly as claymation). However, live actors can also be used in stop motion, known as pixilation, and materials like paper and fabrics can be used to make cut-out animation.
