Why should I convert digital 8 to usb?

WORKS UNIVERSALLY!

PROTECT YOUR HOME MOVIES

Without transferring your videos; moisture, sun-light and other irritants can affect the delicate magnetic tape. This will cause your Digital 8 movies to loose quality over time.

Little tweaks

We go through the process of trimming away any empty space from the start and end of your video. We also contour your tapes so they look as good as they can.
