Small was special.
MicroMV, one of the most recent contributions made to the analog videotape recording industry, was introduced over a decade ago. Since then, Apple got their groove back, Britney Spears boomed, busted, and then boomed again, and Fast and Furious 5 changed all of our lives. In that time, video tape recording, no matter how micro, has become obsolete. It’s getting harder and harder to actually find effective devices to play this micro format on – which means it’s getting harder and harder for you to re-connect with and share some of your most important memories of the last decade. At Southtree our MicroMV to Digital service is second to none in quality and efficiency. We take your MicroMV recordings and transfer them on to modern, easy to watch and share thumb drives, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ or DVDs that lose nothing in translation.
As rare as it is to find good MicroMV viewing equipment these days, it’s only going to get rarer and rarer as time goes on. Since Sony stopped making the format in 2006, the opportunities to actually watch the footage you shot on its original format are dwindling. Don’t miss this chance to transfer your favorite video moments to digital before you lose them altogether.
Our transfer process and equipment are professional and state of the art. Experienced technicians directly oversee the transfer of every frame of your MicroMV to Digital transfer, making sure that the colors are right, the resolution is clear, and nothing is ever lost. At the end of the process you receive a stack of custom labeled DVDs that you can watch on any supporting device (which means pretty much any entertainment system) and share with whomever you want.
Don’t let your memories and favorite recording molder unwatched in a box somewhere. Update your format and get reacquainted with your memories today!
