WHAT PEOPLE SAY
What is hi8?
PLAYS ON ALL DEVICES!
You can play your Hi8 to digital tapes on all of your favourite modern devices
Really? All devices
You should be able to watch the Hi8 to digital converted files on pretty much anything! You can watch them with ease on your computer by just selecting the file. Afterwards you can copy the video onto a tablet or cell phone to watch them on those devices. You can even play them on a television if you have one that has a USB port.
We recommend that once you have the files on your system you make copies of them, mitigating the chances of losing the files because of Hard Drive corruption. This means that you can share your files with your friends and family as much as you want!
What format will my Hi8 to digital tapes be
We convert Hi8 tapes to MP4 (the universal standard). This will allow you to play your videos on most devices. We normally convert the tapes to MP4 but we also offer other well-known formats including avi , mpeg, quick time , and mov.
CAN I TRUST YOU WITH MY Hi8 TAPES?
We will convert NTSC tapes
If you have a tape from the USA or from Canada that does not work on local systems, we can convert it!
CAN YOU STILL CONVERT A DAMAGED TAPE?
We can fix broken tapes. The amount of retrieved footage will depend on the damage.
We can also remove dirt or mould from those very aged Hi8 tapes!
