Benefits of Converting to DVD

Every time you watch your videotapes, the quality is reduced slightly. The mechanical nature and magnetic format of videotape causes them to degrade over time. Typical videotapes have a shelf life of roughly 10 years. Eventually, your tape will become nothing but a snowy, static-filled memory. You can extend the life of your memories by making the conversion to DVD today!

DVD's will last approximately 100 years, and the quality will be exactly the same every time you watch it. Plus, you'll get the added benefit of DVD random-access, meaning you'll be able to skip to the best parts of the video quickly.

Each DVD can hold up to 2 hours of digital high-quality video, and you may optionally choose to have multiple tapes consolidated on to a single DVD. We can even help you convert your entire home video library to DVD! Think of the space you'll save, alone!


the Shoebox Memories Difference

Not all videotape-to-dvd video conversion services are the same. Some companies churn out video conversions in a very impersonal and mechanical way. They might have a room full of automatic VCRs and DVD recorders which require very little human interaction, and therefore a rock-bottom price. Be cautious of those who would offer you a price that's "too good to be true," and make sure the service you choose offers you everything you want in your DVD.

We think your precious memories deserve much more personal attention and care. We offer MUCH more than simple and unattractive textual DVD menus (see sample graphics at right) and/or simple paper sleeves and ordinary jewel cases. We include motion preview DVD menus, not just static snapshots or text. We fully customize your order to meet your needs, and we treat your videos as if they were our own family's memories - all at a very reasonable cost. We're also local to the Washington DC area, so we're probably just a short drive away -- although we do accept orders from customers nationwide.

Your timeless videotapes deserve better - let Shoebox Memories help!
