Did you know that your VHS player is working by a 37 years old standard which was introduced in the year 1976? Since then, people recorded millions of hours on video cassettes. These are mostly family memories and TV programs. Unfortunately people have just realised - after 30 years -, that this format will not last forever.
What are the disadvantages of the videocassette?
The sign keeping ability of the tape is decrasing year by year;
Every use will increase the number of picture faults during playback;
The tape is vulnerable: it rucks and sensible to magnetism;
Mold can cause tapes to be unwatchable;
You can not buy a new video player since 2003 and it is getting harder to maintain them.
Most of Memorescues orders are of VHS and other kinds of magnetic tape video cassettes. Our daily capacity is 80-90 hours, we transfer hundreds of cassettes every month.
Process of recording tapes:
The most important thing is we transfer every cassette carefully, like it was ours.We use dozens of well-maintained recorders through our process. The faults of the tapes (jumps, sync errors, the image distortion caused by the tapes`s elongation) are compensated by TBC and 3D filters. (No one should transfer analog recordings without filtering) Then we save it to MPEG2 format, which is the base format of movie DVDs..
This is followed by the cutting of the ends, DVD burning or exporting to files.
After the transfer and takeover we store all of the recordings for a week for quality reasons - if you need a second copy, you only need to phone us!
We often work for companies, schools, doctors, who bring us tutorials, corporate events, documentaries. We are proud to be unavoidable participants of the field of video transfer, many of our recordings have already been used in television, on homepages or on trials as evidence.
YOUR VIDEO RECORDER GONE WRONG, and you have no idea, what is on your cassettes?
Bring your cassettes, you can check the content in our office! We set up two videos with display for our customers. Anyone can use it freely, so you can easily take a glance at you recordings to see if the content is the same as the title on them. You can also set the tape to the section you need.

You are keeping pace with the technological innovations? You already have an AVHCD camcorder? Then you should read this:
If you want to give some videos to your friends and family members, giving on a pendrive is a exellent solution, but still nobody can do anything with these files beside watching them clicking on every file one by one.
- We can join the many, small videos to one and if we get dates, e.g. Aprul 4-13 2013 the family was on Cyprus then we can convert it into one file by every event.
- Before joining them, we can delete the misfit or accidentally made videos, so the final movie will be only of the useful videos.
- When all the events are in one video, it can be converted to DVD, so grandmother can also watch them.
There is no minimal order! You can either ask for the important ten seconds from a recording or a room full of cassettes!
