MiniDV Tape to Digital Transfer
Tiny tapes. Monumental memories.
Video cassette tapes reached all time portability when MiniDV (MiniDVC) tapes hit the market in the mid 90s. By that time, the technology to compress images made the MiniDV possible and more portable camcorders were in the hands of families across the nation.
The DV tapes themselves measured in at just a quarter-inch thick, two and a half inches wide and two inches tall. And while they were substantially smaller and easier than lugging around VHS tapes, the quality wasn’t necessarily any better. They still relied on capturing footage on magnetic tape, putting them into a category of eventual oblivion just like the VHS.
That’s right, if you’ve got a shoebox full of MiniDV cassettes, it’s time to consider digitizing the footage because in another decade there might not be anything left on them but faded memories of what was.
As one of the original manufactures of MiniDVs, we know that the technology inside the hardware – while revolutionary at the time – won’t last forever. Like other analog film formats of the day, it was never meant to. But that doesn’t mean those precious memories can’t be preserved forever.
Our MiniDV to DVD service can take your old tapes and digitize every frame of film onto a DVD, thumb drive or the cloud. That means your memories are officially future-proof and you no longer require the whole camcorder and TV connector wire setup mess to play your old DVs (assuming you even still have your old camcorder).
As one of film’s past and present pioneers, we’ve prided ourselves in helping you capture those memorable moments over the decades, and we want to help you keep them. With Kodak Digitizing, we’ll send you a crush-proof box with pre-paid FedEx shipping and tracking (both ways). After our team of digital experts completes the conversion process, we’ll return all your original tapes, plus give you digital copies to easily share and commemorate with friends and family. Get ready to laugh, cry and visit every other emotion in between.
