Hi8 video tape format was the evolution of the widely popular Video8 format. It was introduced to match the properties of the Super-VHS (SVHS) format. Hi8 and Video8 tapes are physically identical and can be used interchangeably for recording but a matching format equipment must be used for proper playback.
We transfer all Hi8 video cassettes using professional grade Sony EVO-9850 decks.
There are many companies on the internet who offer to transfer your video tapes to DVD. So why choose us?
In addition to being the most experienced transfer house in Canada, having multiple real studios to serve you better (No, we don't transfer your Hi8 to DVD in the back of the convenience store), your video cassette to DVD or computer file transfers will also benefit from our streamlined process described below.
We only use professional equipment. This allows us to get the best possible image even from the oldest and most worn video tape.
We only use professional equipment. Most videotapes consist of a layer of tiny magnetic particles applied to Mylar, a strong, flexible plastic material. One of the most unfortunate issues with video tape is that the more it was used the more likely the tape has been deformed. Usually tape streaching causes problems with video drop outs that look like a band that crossed the screen. In some cases no matter how much you try to adjust the image you cannot get a stable video feed.
Of course, audio is severely affected where in many cases it's impossible to get any clear sound at all. By utilizing professional tape players it give us a much larger base to work from. We can adjust your footage twice as much as consumer equipment. Your tape will not only look better but sound better.
Our equipment is serviced regularly by the dealers and undergo routine testing to ensure the highest possible conversions at all times. But just like the computer saying video tape conversions start with perfect quality in equals perfect quality out.
After your video tapes have been transfered, our quality assurance staff will review the order to make sure everything is perfect.
It begins with the entry of your order. All orders are assigned a customer number. This number is then labeled to every single item you have left with us including the tape and the case. This make it impossible for orders to be mixed up. Your order is then assigned an editor. We try to make sure that only one person works on your order from start to finish. It ensures that quality maintained at the highest level through out and that if there are any issues, the editor is aware of all stpes being taken.
Our Clearance process is something we are very proud of. EVERY SINGLE order goes through a 2 step review by not only the editor working on the order but a digital specialist. We have found that this additional step (no taken by any other companies) virtually guarantees that when a customer does pick up their order it is perfect 100% of the time.
Video is not only about the picture. All transfers pass though professional grade audio processor for crystal clear sound.
A laugh from the past. You late uncles speech at your wedding. You great grand mothers advice during a holiday celebration. All lost without proper audio. 50% of any video you watch is what you hear.We take very special care to ensure that not only what you see if clear and perfect, but also what you hear is as it should be.
We use professional shielded audio cables with gold plated connections soldered and locked where possible. Our grounded stations ensure ZERO noise leakage and perfect quality conversions every time. Our professional editors who run the videotapes regularly turn up the sound and smaple sections to make sure all is perfect. ALL order then goes through a 2 step review by not only the editor working on the order but a digital specialist. We have found that this additional step (no taken by any other companies) virtually guarantees that when a customer does pick up their order it is perfect 100% of the time.
Need your audio enhanced? Look into custom editing. Our team can split the audio track from the video. Run all sound through special software that will remove sound peaks and clear up bad spots. In fact, we recently conert 80 video tapes over 140 hours of band footage for a Montreal highschool. They have won dozens of competitions and wanted to save these memories for future students. Our team was not only able to save all the footage, but was able to remove background hiss and even some of the recording noises. Then add the audio back to the video track creating an absolutely stunning final product.
