Transfer VHS C to DVD and Digital

When introduced in the early eighties, the VHS-C caused an upheaval in the consumer-grade camcorder market. Based on the same format as the already hugely popular VHS, the smaller VHS-C tapes could be used to record film and be played back in a typical VCR using an adapter. This development also played a part in the decline of sales for the bulkier Betamax format. Sadly, the VHS-C fell victim to the tides of time and the speed of surging technological advancement. VHS-C tapes fell into obsolescence and were replaced by more compact Mini DV tapes, DVD and ultimately memory card camcorders.

How we convert VHS C to Digital

Our digitisation process:

  1. Select an EachMoment Memory Box with the appropriate capacity for your VHS-C tapes. There are 5 sizes to choose from.
  2. Select an output format. i.e. How would you like your digital videos returned to you: USB, DVD or Cloud album?
  3. EachMoment sends out your chosen memory box via courier to delivered the next working day. Pack all your VHS C tapes into our specially designed reinforced box and request a collection via our online portal.
  4. Your Memory Box is collected from your doorstep and tracked to our office.
  5. Each tape is carefully cleaned by hand and assessed for damage.
  6. The tapes are put through broadcast quality VCRs and digitally formatted.
  7. Once digitised, the footage is edited with specialist software to refresh colour grading and audio levels that brings it to modern standards.
  8. The edited videos are transferred to your chosen output format.
  9. Everything is carefully packaged and returned to your doorstep via courier.

Why should I convert my VHS-C tapes to digital formats?

The video footage on VHS-C is stored on magnetic tapes which can degrade by 20% in as little as 10 years. Eventually, your old VHS-C tapes containing your priceless memories could soon lose a great deal of their quality or vanish completely. The sooner you transfer your VHS-C tapes to DVD and digital the better. By converting your VHS-C tapes to digital and DVD, you could free up some extra space in your cupboards or declutter the garage while feeling safe in the knowledge that your tapes will degrade no further, and that your memories will be protected for many more years to come. Conversion of VHS-C tapes to DVD and digital allows you to re-watch and relive your VHS-C tapes on your computer, laptop or mobile, so you can take your cherished memories with you wherever you go!
