When you transfer videos from VHS tape to DVD, you’re making sure that they will be available to you for a long time to come. VHS tapes might get corrupted with the passage of time, but DVDs will last a lot longer. Once your files are digitized, you can watch them on DVD players and also on computers and phones. It becomes easy to share them with your friends and family members.
How Well Are Your VHS Tapes Preserved?
The length of time your VHS tapes last depends on how well you store them. Are they kept away from sunlight, humidity and warm temperatures which will lead into faster deterioration? If so, then they may still contain most of the original videos you had recorded on them. But no matter how well you take care of your VHS tapes, deterioration is going to occur. Plus, it’s becoming harder and harder to find a VHS tape player to play these old tapes on.
VHS Tape Transfers to Digital
No matter how you look at it, it seems as if the best thing is to get your VHS tapes transferred to DVD right away. The longer you wait, the more obsolete the VHS tapes format becomes. The digital format, on the other hand, will preserve your videos for a long time to come. In fact, it seems unlikely that the digital format will ever become obsolete.
What Types of Videos Should You Preserve?
In addition to reviving old memories, you can also preserve videos that are meaningful to you in other ways. If there are old sporting events you had recorded, that you would like to watch again, why not put them on DVD? If there are old TV shows that you can’t find anywhere else, you might as well preserve the ones you recorded. The same goes for videos of special events such as awards ceremonies, weddings, children’s theatricals, etc.
