Digital8 to DVD
Digital 8 to DVD, Digital File Conversion Service
Digital 8 tapes are prone to the same kind of age related damage and loss of quality as HI8 tapes. It is important to transfer their content to a more reliable digital format to ensure you will keep your family memories accessible and damage free. DVD’s or digital files are an ideal way of preserving your home movies and their precious memories in a digital format for years to come. The ease of duplicating a digital recording also ensures you can easily share and create duplicates ensuring your memories are safeguarded.
Hi8 to Digital / DVD PRICING
Prices start from £15 for a single tape to DVD, however, to keep customer prices low we combine multiple tapes to a single disc. Given that a DVD can store up to 2 hours of footage and most tapes are rarely full we can often integrate up to 4 tapes on to 1 disc at a reduced rate.
Please contact us for more information.We also provide a bulk order rate for customers with 20 tapes or more (tapes can be of mixed formats).

With our DVD’s we want to not just preserve your hi8 home movies but to enhance them also. All our DVD’s come with custom cover art and an interactive menu system with individual titles and chapters to allow you to jump into your movies at any given point. We want to provide you with an enhanced version of your tapes, highlighting all the best moments. As part of our service we edit out any unwanted TV shows, fuzziness between scenes or extended periods of recording with the lens cap on (we’ve all done it!) to ensure a tidier, smoother version of your memories. Please contact us for more information.
Hi8 to Digital Files
