We transfer, copy and convert professional broad cast video tapes to DVD andEditable File Formats. Broadcast tapes are the superior video and sound tapes to standard tapes. These can be converted to digital file or DVD. Video tapes have been commercially available since 1956 but unfortunately those with open reels are the most prone to deterioration due to their acetate based tape giving a sticky shed syndrone that is very hard to convert. These were typically used in broadcast or studio recordings. We would always suggest to have these converted as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration.
