Betamax to Digital Transfer
Even second place deserve a second chance
Ages before Netflix, long before DVDs, we witnessed the original home video format war. It was the mid 70s and the stage was set. In one corner, we had the current champ, Sony’s Betamax, an already established and consumer-accepted video tape. In the other corner, a new comer that just arrived on scene, the VHS, a cheaper, more accessible video tape. After a few years in the ring duking it out, the new comer came out victorious and Betamax video tapes never regained their home theater status.
Betamax tape is the perfect consumer example that just because you’re first to the market doesn’t mean you’ll be the last one standing. The tapes themselves were slightly bigger in stature to VHS measuring in at one inch thick, six inches wide and nearly 4 inches tall. Being a Japanese product, “Beta” is the Japanese word for how signals are recorded onto the tape, and it’s also the shape of the lowercase Greek letter that the tape resembled through transport.
Being one of the original companies to release Betamax video cassettes of our own, we know a thing or two about this technological relic. In fact, if you’ve got any long-forgotten Betamax tapes lying around there’s a good chance they could be our L-750 models. The good news is that you’ve got a tape full of memories involving bellbottoms, disco and feathered haircuts. The bad news is that if you don’t do anything to preserve those tapes, those memories are going to fade just like the past fashions in their heyday.
That’s where our digitization process can help you convert those seemingly ancient family memories into our current digital reality. You see, as the magnetic tape on those Betamax and VHS tapes continues to age, so too does the content that’s imbedded on it. Thirty years is the average lifespan of old tapes and if you do the math to when Betamax was released in 1975, we’re already well past its expiration date.
But not all is lost! We transfer hundreds of Betamax tapes in our studio every day, converting them to DVD, thumb drive or the cloud – whatever method you desire. Our thorough conversion service can digitize those old tapes so that you won’t have to worry about losing any of those precious home video memoires – some of the first home movies in the history of your family tree, no doubt.
Simply send in your tapes using our roundtrip pre-paid box and we’ll do the rest. We’ll even keep you updated you on every step throughout the conversion process so you’re never in the dark about what your memories are going through. After we’ve transferred all your classic Betamax tapes, we’ll return all your originals as well as send you your new digital copies.
Betamax was a huge part of history – albeit a brief part of history. Don’t let your memories find the same fate. Digitize today!
