While we’re moving away from needing VHS tapes, it’s interesting to look back and see the impact they had on society and how they changed the world of film and TV — this is precisely what we’ll be discussing in today’s blog.
Making TV is expensive and time consuming, and when you’re a TV company making shows that have been on air for decades, there just isn’t space to store all those bulky film reels and VHS tapes sometimes. Over the years, hours of classic television have been lost forever as tapes are wiped, burned or simply forgotten. But sometimes, they re-surface again!
Movie remakes always seem like a risk, they either go amazingly well, or become a huge fail. Some audiences can be very fond of an original movie, but respect the efforts of the remake, yet some are an insult to the film industry.
Numerous films released are remakes of classics which succeeded when they were released. Here, we will look at the best and worst movie remakes. Have you one in mind? Let’s see if it makes the list.
Here at Video 2 DVD Transfers we specialise in converting tons of different formats, from Mini DV to Digital 8; VHS to Betamax. Ah, Betamax – once heralded as the thinking man’s video format of choice, and now the punchline to a thousand tech jokes. But does Betamax deserve its reputation, and did it deserve to so comprehensively lose out to VHS?
Direct to digital transfers from videotape are ideal if you want to edit your home movies and perhaps produce a special memento of a special occasion from your families past. You can also email and share your memories.
Some of our customers have asked us what the barcode stickers on their returned videotapes are.
We stick one to each of your tapes the moment they arrive with us. They include your order number and our individual tape reference. It’s very unlikely that a tape becomes separated from it’s order whilst in our studios. But in that unlikely event we can match things up quickly using the information on the stickers we apply. They also help us check your order before we dispatch it.
The stickers are removable adhesive so you can take them off once you receive your parcel back.
