There's no question that video is one of the most powerful forms of communication, memories, and storytelling around. However, until recently, converting analog video formats into digital ones was a cumbersome and expensive process. But with the advent of new technology, that's all changed! In this blog post from Zarate Photo & Video Solutions, we'll discuss four things you need to know about video digital conversions.
Everything You Need to Know About Video Digital Conversions
Analog Formats Degrade Over Time
One of the most important things to know about converting your analog video is that the quality of those mediums will degrade over time. This is due to a variety of factors, including age, wear and tear, and exposure to the elements. As such, it's important to convert your analog videos sooner rather than later.
You Can Choose Your Digital Format
When you convert your analog video to digital, you'll have a few different format options to choose from. If you'd like to keep a hard copy of your video, Zarate can convert your 8mm reels, VHS, VHS HI8, and VHS-C tapes into a DVD or Blu-Ray format disc. Alternatively, we can create entirely digital files of your video that can easily be saved to a computer hard drive, external drive, or cloud service.
Consolidate Your DVD/Blu-Ray Collection Digitally
If you've got a large collection of DVDs or Blu-Ray discs, you may be wondering if it's worth converting them to digital files. The answer is a resounding yes! Not only will consolidating your video collection save physical space, but it'll also make it much easier to access and organize your movies, TV shows, and home videos.
