Memories last forever, but documenting them creates their own lifespan. VHS is a great example of this: it is almost obsolete, with a continuous decrease in its use and the increase in viewing videos digitally or through a DVD or Blu-ray format. At Video2DVDTransfers, we specialise in transferring VHS to digital media to ensure your most treasured memories turn into lasting family possessions; with this in mind, it is favourable to transfer your home videos to digital formats as soon as you can, which include DVDs, Blu-ray and mobile device files. Nothing changes; it is still the same home video footage that it always was.
Other than the fact that VHS is quickly becoming a thing of the past, with the accessibility of watching your home videos in this format going the same way, there are a whole host of other reasons and benefits of transferring any VHS to digital media today. Such home and family videos can be quite old and have already been on a journey of depreciation with age and excessive playing, so it is wise to transfer this footage to a digitalised format before the quality of the VHS degrades further.
One need to transfer VHS to digital is owed to the increased demand and use of digital formats giving way for an improved quality, as well as an enhanced accessibility, of viewing. With convenience being a priority for many, VHS to digital transferring is an ideal option for old videos; many devices and consoles have the option to play DVD and Blu-ray discs, but none offer the same availability for VHS tapes. Transferring your VHS tapes to a digital format includes personal and mobile devices that can be shared in a matter of moments to anybody, anywhere. A benefit of this in comparison to the VHS is, of course, a reduced need of storage space as a result of streamed files and thin DVD/Blu- ray discs. Let’s not forget the underappreciated ability to skip/rewind almost instantly to a certain point in the video rather than spending lots of time rewinding the whole VHS tape as well. This accessibility is quickly developing globally and, as friends and families are separated due to distance, a demand for easily shareable media and content through the internet is constantly growing.
