It's Been Awhile...
Do You Know What Shape Your Videotapes Are In?

VHS is the videotape most people are familiar with. You may have VHS, BETA, 8mm, Mini DV or even some other obscure videotape format. If you're like most people, these tapes are near and dear to you. They hold precious memories of you and your family. What has brought you to Whatever it is we understand and we're here to help

The fact is your tapes are old. They're wasting away. They've been sitting in a drawer or resting on a shelf for years while you went on about your life. Now is the time to rescue them and transfer their precious images to an archival format. Don't wait until it's too late. Here's our process and what we can do to help.

First, we have been in this business for a long, long time. We understand tape and tape transfer technology. Our founder, Robert Hanley actually started out shooting and editing both film and tape in the 1970's and 1980's. You might say it's in our blood. We know what to do but more than that we have a passion for preserving your memories. It's not just our job, it's our life.

Home Video Studio has always been committed to keeping ahead of the curve in video technology. In the late 1990's we led the way in the transfer of VHS, VHS-C, 8mm and Mini-DV tapes to DVD. We pioneered the development of HVS DVD Deluxe transfer technology and years later we're still leading the way by providing the exclusive cloud-based Digital Video Archive (DVA).

But it's not just the technology - it's our people. You don't stay in the business this long without tremendous dedication and a great service staff. Once your videotapes arrive at our transfer center in Indianapolis, you can rest assured we will handle them with tender loving care every step of the way – just like they were our very own.
