Convert Digital 8 to DVD
The late 90s and early 2000s were an experimental time in video tech. Technology was advancing quickly and as a result many different video formats were released within just a few years of one another. Among that string of releases came Sony’s Digital 8 recording tapes, the final progression of the 8mm Sony Handycam era.
Similar to its predecessors, the Hi8 and Video 8, these tapes were about the size of a deck of playing cards. But despite the name, Digital 8 tapes were actually analog technology – a bit deceiving. As a result, these video cassette tapes will befall the same fate as every other previously released video tape format, and if left unattended, the content stored on the Digital 8’s magnetic tape will continue to deteriorate over time just like your VHS collection. So while the video encoded and stored on the tape itself may be digital, the actual tape is anything but. And simply putting the word “digital” in the name isn’t enough to alter the inevitable.
But before you give up and think all hope is lost, know that your memories can be transferred and preserved – and we can help! As film icon that’s been around for more than a century helping lead the industry throughout its evolution, we convert hundreds of Digital 8 tapes every day in our digitization studios. Let us give your old “digital” tapes a warm welcome into the real world of digitization with our fast, easy and convenient converter process.
We’ll send you a crushproof, roundtrip pre-paid box to load up and send back, and we’ll get to work, formatting and digitizing every memory, every frame of your old tapes. We even make it easy for you to stay in touch throughout the entire process. After the conversion is complete we’ll send your old tapes back along with your new digital format keepsakes – a DVD, thumb drive or access to the cloud – everything you need to share your memories for generations to come.
If you’ve got a little bundle of video history – where tape “almost” met digital – it’s time to be proactive, not reactive. Otherwise, you may not have any memories left to convert.
