BROKEN TAPE EXPERTS

We are experts at tape recovery and can rescue the contents of tapes that have the following issues:
broken, twisted or snapped video tapes
sticky tapes unable to play
smoke, mold or heat effected tapes
video tapes that have been in floodwater (if we receive them quick enough)
We even have a suite of video recovery tools including a professional tape baking oven at our disposal. In addition, all tapes are pretensioned and rewound before using to avoid unnecessary wear.

 

Reasons for transferring videotape to Digital.

    • Videotapes deteriorate over time.
    • Every time you play your videotape, your player causes some wear on your tape.
    • Videotapes can also be wiped out by a static shock or they may lose quality from not being stored properly.
    • Add this with the age of your videotape and you might have a tape that won’t play anymore.
    • Videotape boxes break.
    • Videotape machines are obsolete. Some types are machines are getting harder and harder to find. Even if you do have a machine that will play your videotape, if it breaks, parts are very expensive if available at all.
    • Videotapes take up a lot of storage space.
