Since 1998, when VHS was issuing its final surrender to DVDs, Video Data Services has been transferring analog memoirs into the digital age and saving antiquated formats from a life in the attic. Whether it's home movies shot on 8mm, Super 8, or 16mm reels, homecoming games filmed on bulky VHS camcorders, or a library of failed America's Funniest Home Videos auditions captured in old formats such as Hi8 or MiniDV, Video Data Services treats every film canister, shoebox of slides, or truckloads of videotape like a precious magnetic baby. When transporting celluloid to its more universally accessible DVD form, their crew of technicians clean, condition, and repair any broken splices or tears in frame-by-frame transfers that eradicate flickers or that weird melting film effect that happens with projectors. They also create hand-scanned, cropped, and color-corrected slideshow DVDs from photos and slides, and convert any videotape format to DVD, where nobody can accidentally tape over a wedding with their break-dancing demo.
