VHS enjoyed surprising longevity for nearly 40 years, before the last remaining VCR/VHS factory was shuttered in 2016. For anyone who grew up in the 1980s–1990s and their parents, VHS afforded a love of film and television shows. Just looking at the colorful cases of Disney classics and other favorites can evoke powerful feelings of nostalgia.

It’s reassuring to know that all those beloved VHS tapes don’t need to collect dust in a dark corner of your basement – you can relive wonderful memories by digitizing them. Keep in mind that VHS tapes can get damaged from both lack of use or overuse. So in order to preserve precious memories, you should convert VHS to digital sooner rather than later.

What Sets Our VHS Transfer Services Apart

ScanCafe offers award-winning quality and guaranteed safety at industry-beating prices. Moreover, when you send your VHS tapes to us, they aren’t outsourced to another country. All services are performed at our state-of-the-lab in the USA. When you choose ScanCafe to digitize your nostalgic VHS tapes, you’ll be delighted to see that the final output is often better than the original.

After your order is received at our facility, each tape is barcoded with a unique identification number. A technician enters a title for the tape using information found on the label, then transfers the same title to the digital format. The tape is captured and encoded using proprietary software that analyzes the video and removes any blank footage. Chapter points are inserted every 10 minutes on DVDs, enabling you to easily forward to different sections. In addition, we’ll try to repair damaged video cassettes – without any extra charge.
