Last month, ARS Video set up a booth at the vibrant IX Convention Center during the Cleveland Christmas Connection, a festive marketplace where people can shop for holiday gifts, see works from local artisans, experience holiday displays and more.

Amidst the holiday cheer and festive spirit, we encountered numerous individuals, particularly women in their 30s to early 40s, who shared a common goal long-pending on their bucket lists: a desire to transfer VHS tapes, Hi-8 tapes, and other cherished memories to a digital format for preservation and easier viewing.

Many of the visitors we spoke with were holding onto video tapes with footage from their childhood, capturing the essence of the 1990s. The era of VHS-C and Hi-8 tapes might feel like a distant memory, but for our customers, these old VHS tapes were time capsules, filled with irreplaceable moments and emotions. The challenge? Their precious memories were trapped in outdated formats (video tape!), waiting to be converted into a more durable, long-lasting format.

The Bucket List Item: Digital Conversion

The concept of a “bucket list” often includes grand adventures and life-changing experiences. Yet, for many we met at the convention, converting old video tapes was a significant, deeply personal goal. It’s a task often postponed, not due to lack of desire, but due to uncertainty about where to go or for fear of losing these tapes in transit.

The process of converting VHS tapes to a digital format not only preserves these memories but also revitalizes them. Our video transfer service allows you to relive your past through modern devices like smart TVs, DVD players, laptop computers, and even your phone.
