Video tapes were not meant to last
Many tapes are already showing their age, slowing degrading while siting on the shelf. NOW is the time to make a move and get them transferred to an archival Digital Medium.
We use standard definition DVDs fundamentally because they are universally playable, and their resolution is well suited to that of the sources we are transferring. It also allows us to keep the costs of the service low, and we can put up to 2 hours of video tape content onto a DVD.
This does mean, however, that if you view your video tape footage on a large, HD television or computer monitor, it will not seem nearly as sharp as when viewed on a regular analog television, particularly so for VHS.
