Convert VHS tapes to digital files and preserve precious memories before they are stolen by time.

The producers of the Netflix Documentary Lucy and Desi needed the family VHS video tape archive converted to digital. They came to Legacy Digital Productions.

Your VHS tapes are losing their image quality

Your home videos are deteriorating, whether you’re aware of it or not. From the moment they were recorded, your tapes have been slowly degrading. VHS tapes are particularly susceptible to this process, decaying faster than most other analog media formats.

Each playback causes wear and stretching, especially in extended play tapes. This stretching distorts the images, making them different from their original quality. Even when not in use, tapes continue to degrade. Improper storage conditions, such as non-temperature controlled environments, garages, or attics, accelerate this process.

Unlike photos, slides, or film, video tapes have a shorter lifespan. Their bulky nature often leads to inadequate storage, further shortening their durability. Frequent playback exacerbates the issue, causing the tapes to stretch and lose clarity over time.

Is it too late to convert your VHS tapes?

Sometimes.  But not always.  Legacy Digital can inspect them and let you know! 

If you send your VHS video tapes we will look them over and check them for issues.  We won’t skip video tapes that can be converted and we also won’t covert tapes that shouldn’t be converted.  We won’t run good tapes through dirty machines that cause damage to them.  We also won’t deliver grainy and unwatchable or even blank video files, Legacy Digital will actually view your video tapes before converting them. 

You’ll never pay for tapes that we can’t convert.  We also won’t charge you for commercial movies or copyrighted material that we can’t legally convert.  

How to select the right company to convert your tapes to digital files

Choosing the right company to digitize your video tapes can be challenging.  You’ll find hundreds of companies to choose from online and each use their own method to convert your tapes.

Of all these, there are only a handful or so throughout the entire US that we would feel comfortable recommending.

Please avoid at all costs the big box companies.  You’ll see them advertising “easy to order” boxes where you pre-pay for X number of videotapes at rock bottom prices.  Unfortuantely we know that they can’t possibly do a good job converting your VHS tapes for you at these prices, not inside the US at least. So they forgoe quality for price.  

Avoid "Big Box" companies and others offering low prices for video tape conversion

  1. They have a history of skipping tapes that are convertible.
  2. The image quality of your transfer may not represent the actual quality of the actual video footage due to them being converted on poorly maintained video players with clogged or dirty read heads.
  3. Your video tapes could be damaged by being played in poorly maintained machines.
  4. You may get back videos that are so low quality you may not want to share them, or worse, you could pay for blank video files. blank video files.
  5. May companies including the big box companies and the other “toss your stuff into our premade box” types often send your video tapes overseas for processing to keep costs low.  This results in a lack of control, mishandling of your media, and even loss during bulk international shipping.
  6. Time-based correction is unavailable by default or offered for an additional fee.
  7. You end up paying more to have the work redone properly. (We often handle such cases and are happy to help, but we regret that customers didn’t hear this warning beforehand.)

We typically convert videotapes to low-compression digital files in MP4 or MOV format for the best quality image.  All media is typically delivered on thumb drives or hard drives, and can be stored in the cloud as well for easy sharing.  We also convert tapes to playable DVD using only professional grade gold archival DVD disks which last longer.  When it comes to converting old videotapes to digital, we’ve got you covered.

Converting VHS Tapes

Some companies advertise extremely low prices for video tape conversion. But did you know if a tape is worn out, won’t run, or contains copyrighted material, you will still pay for each and every tape?  

These companies will sometimes deliver grainy distorted video files and even sometimes files with no video content on them at all.  Why?  Because they don’t actually monitor the tapes to make sure the transfer went smoothly – and they can’t for the prices they charge. 

With Legacy Digital you won’t receive digital files that are unviable due to the tapes being too worn out to recover the video from.  You won’t receive a 90 minute video file with only 5 minutes of actual video.  You won’t pay for tapes that we can’t run because they are damaged.  And if they are damaged, we won’t discard them, in fact sometimes we’ll actually try to repair them to preserve your prescious memories.

 We actually put the time and resources into monitoring the video conversions.

With Legacy Digital, you only pay for the tapes we are able to convert and you won’t pay for what we can’t.

    Only pay for:

  • Actual video tapes converted

    Never get or pay for:

  • Video tapes that are damaged, worn out, blank, or simply can't be converted
  • Video tapes that contain TV shows, commercials or other copyrighted materials
  • Blank or half-blank video files

Our 100% Satisfaction Guarantee

“We are not finished until you love it. We will do everything within our technological capabilities using our state-of-the-art equipment to create the highest quality video and image captures possible. With that said, there is only so much that we can do with some older and heavily degraded media. We can assure you though, we will give you as good or better product than anyone else in the marketplace…And if someone else can produce a visibly better product, one which is noticeably more colorful and clear, we will refund your money.

Legacy Digital did a fabulous job of getting our old family films and slides on dvd for my parents’ anniversary. The quality was amazing and my parents were so surprised. Scott was so helpful picking up and delivering our order saving us time and gas money and keeping our family treasures safe from the mail. I definitely would recommend them to anyone and in fact am calling them again to do all of our VHS tapes and camcorder tapes next.
