Blu-ray and DVD technology replaced the venerable VHS cassette. Unfortunately, many people used that video format to record their memories: birthdays, weddings, vacations, and more. Do you have a stack of VHS tapes that you’d love to watch again and share with other people?
Consider capturing these memories and converting them to DVDs or uploading to video sharing sites such as YouTube. The process goes something like this:
- Connect a VHS tape player to a computer. There are special hardware converters available that make this possible.
- Once in the computer (called digitizing) you can edit the video, improve the look, record narration, add titles, and more.
- When you are satisfied with your project, you can use the computer to create a DVD and/or upload the video to the Web.
The Library of Congress has additional tips and resources for ‘Preserving Your Digital Memories.’ Visit their site here.
Studio 300 has dedicated equipment to help you convert your VHS (and other video formats) to DVD and the Web. We’ll even show you how to do it, too.
Studio 300 is scheduled to open in early spring of 2013.
