Why should you put your Videos onto DVD?


If your tape has snapped, we can resplice it and then put it on to DVD or a New VHS Tape. To repair a VHS tape is $20 Per splice. 8 Mill and Mini DV tapes are quoted on. Sadly some Mini DV tape are not design to be repaired as the Cassette housing is Sealed and the case has to be broken to access the tape, which is why I will quote you first.
We will always recommend when it is repaired you get it transferred straight away, unfortunally we cannot give a warranty on how well it will work after the repair, at least it will be on DVD or MP4.

Some Cool facts about Video Tapes

Will tapes last longer if they are not used?

Not necessarily. Tapes should be rewound or played at least annually. However, the more often you play a tape, the greater the likelihood that the tape will be damaged. Copies should be made of frequently used tapes so that a backup exists.

How long will videotapes last?

The life of a videotape is difficult to predict. Some tapes deteriorate after three or four years, under humidity conditions deterioration can occur in even lest time, Mould can grow b/t the tape and damages it The life of a tape depends on good storage conditions, the quality of the tape, the frequency of use and the care in use.

How should tapes be stored?

Heat and humidity are the two greatest enemies of videotape. The recommended storage conditions for videotape are 18C-24C with a relative humidity of between 35 per cent and 45 per cent i.e. an even temperature with low humidity. Satisfying these conditions in a typical domestic environment is difficult.
Storage places to be avoided include:
  1. Directly on concrete floors (susceptible to spills and water damage and high humidity)
  2. Attics, cellars (high temperatures and high humidity)
  3. Adjacent to bathrooms and laundries, or other areas where steam water is found
  4. Next to the VCR or other Electricial Equipment in an enclosed cabinet due to high temperatures.
You should always keep tapes to their containers when you have finished using them and store them in an upright position.
It is also a good idea to spool tapes at low speed or play from start to finish before storage as this will ensure that the tape is correctly wound inside the cassette.
