VHS to DVD Converter - Digitized, by hand.
At Southtree we’ve made it our mission to recover thousands of hours of family memories from outdated formats like VHS. Like Astroturf and perms, VHS tapes have gone the way of the Alicia Silverstone dinosaur. But those memories aren’t gone – they’re just unavailable. That’s where Southree comes in. Our state of the art VHS to DVD Service is second to none.
The VHS format is outdated, but it’s also becoming unplayable. Nowadays it’s rare to find a working VCR in most homes, and even more rare to find one at the local mall. VHS cassettes aren’t just obsolete however – physically they aren’t good stewards of your home movies. VHS tapes are easy to break and wear out, and many of them only last about 20 years. Durable, high quality thumb drives, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ and DVDs don’t have those problems. They’re easy to store, customize, and keep for decades.
Our VHS to DVD transfer service is fast, safe, and of the very highest quality. Think of German engineering, without all the guttural screams. Our highly trained technicians process each of your VHS tapes from beginning to end, giving them their full attention and making sure that everything is perfectly preserved in all of its original glory. Every birthday party, softball game, holiday get together, wedding reception – keep them all with you with the power of our VHS to DVD service.
The DVDs you’ll get back from Southtree can be custom-titled for easy storage and sorting. They can be played on all available formats, including DVD players, computer and laptops, and digital projectors. They are designed to last as long as you own them, and they won’t deteriorate like a stack of VHS tapes or your vintage collection of OJ Simpson memorabilia.
Isn’t it about time that you and your memories got back together? Take the first step with our VHS to thumb drive, digital delivery through Southtree Cloud™ or VHS to DVD transfer service.
