Obscure Tape Transfer Service

Have Obscure Video, Will Transfer!

The videotape "family tree" has been around for more than forty years - and there are many generations of formats. Almost everyone is familiar with VHS, 8mm, Betamax, and MiniDV – but the family tree of tapes is diverse. There are many other video formats - very obscure ones - that contain valuable content. Transferring these unique broadcast, international and rare formats is another one of our specialties.

We call these "obscure" formats because the obsolete machines capable of playing these tapes are not likely to be found in a basement or at a yard sale. We make it our business to find and maintain the equipment needed to transfer these ancient formats including: ¾"videotape (also called U-matic), One-Inch videotape and One-Half-Inch videotape (on open reels), Betacam, and a whole host of others.

Here's why you want to send us your obscure and, many times, one-of-a-kind tapes:

Trust your obsolete format tapes to dedicated and knowledgeable professionals!
