VIDEO & FILM TRANSFERS
Professional Videographers in Toronto, ON
Xpression Video Productions offers a full range of services to convert and transfer your old video tapes into digital media.
Storage media such as VHS and other cassette tapes are now considered obsolete in favour of digital, disc-based media such as CDs and DVDs. In fact, it’s just a matter of time before disc-based media are also discarded. In due time, these “analog” storage media will become vulnerable to physical degradation, with significant decrease in the quality and noticeable artifacts. However, digital media, although not indestructible, maintains the quality of the content no matter the age of the physical medium. As long as you have your content backed up on multiple digital storage devices, your media content is effectively guaranteed to last forever. Given the increasing capacities of digital storage drives, it is becoming progressively feasible to store audio, video, and photo libraries on our portable devices. It only makes sense to take your most prized old home videos and get them transferred as soon as possible, before it is too late.
At Xpression Video Productions we can assist with converting your tape-based media into the digital media using our professional equipment, and converting digital content on CDs and DVDs for playback on computers, tablets, and smartphones. We also have a professional, high-resolution scanner for converting old film into the digital media formats for prolonged storage.
