Way before digital streaming and the era of ‘high-definition’, VHS and VHS-C tapes reigned supreme as the go-to mediums for home entertainment and personal recordings. These magnetic tapes, encased in their iconic plastic shells, were the backbone of countless movie nights, family gatherings, and candid moments captured on camcorders.

VHS tapes, with their bulky cassettes, found their way into living rooms across the globe, bringing movies, documentaries, and TV shows into homes with the click of a button. Meanwhile, VHS-C tapes, the compact siblings, accompanied families on vacations, birthdays, and everyday adventures, preserving cherished memories with every click of the camcorder’s record button.

What does your conversion process look like?

We’ve been converting all formats of video and camcorder tapes since 2002. During that time, we’ve honed our procedure to the point now that we believe it is the best you will find anywhere:

This is no ordinary video transfer. The following procedures are standard in our Premium transfer process:

  • Digitising your video through our professional transcoding & digitising equipment
  • Removal of white noise and artifacts from the start and end of your footage
  • Removal of blank or black sections
  • Cropping of jitter from perimeter of footage where necessary
  • Removal of static
  • Adding chapters to final DVD
  • Dolby Digital sound
  • Industry leading two pass variable bit rate encoding
  • Transferring your footage onto high quality DVDs
  • Upgrade to 24kt gold plated archive grade DVDs upon request
  • Professionally packaged into a DVD case
  • Personalised attention from experienced technician throughout from start to finish


  • Use domestic DVD recorders (this will produce a low quality encoding and not allow editing of your footage). All our equipment is professional grade.
  • Our transfers are all done in Perth, we don’t outsource or get anything processed overseas.
  • An experienced operator will complete your transfer from start to finish. Before we edit and clean up any unwanted issues with your media, we digitise it in real time. For example, if you have a 90 minute tape, it will take us 90 minutes to digitise. This time consuming process is the only way to give your memories the treatment they deserve.
Why should I convert my VHS tapes into digital format?

Converting VHS tapes to digital preserves your memories from degradation and makes them easily accessible, shareable, and safe. Digitisation ensures compatibility with modern devices, safeguarding your precious moments for future generations to enjoy without the need for obsolete playback equipment.

What do you do with the original tapes after conversion?

After conversion, the original tapes are returned to you along with your new digital copies. We can also safely dispose of the tapes if requested.
