Where most people view the humble VHS tape as a relic of a bygone era, the experts at Audio Video Workshop see it as an endangered species worthy of preservation. With that in mind, they usher spools of easily erased magnetic tape into the digital age without damaging the precious master copies. This professionalism doesn't come by chance; every staff member has a bachelor's degree in broadcast and electronic communication arts ranging from radio and TV to film production, making them a formidable team in the biz. Together they transfer home movies onto DVD, with high-def and Blu-ray options available that project images with pristine quality. Using the Sniper-HD Pro Telecine Scanning system, they can transfer 8mm, Super8, and 16mm film to DVD or Blu-ray. They can also convert various forms of media into digital files for Macs or PCs, letting customers store their nostalgia on a hard drive instead of in their brains, which often fall victim to age and viruses that replace memories with cat videos.

Diverting his attention from a particularly active nest of eptesicus fuscus, he began photographing the orb, which made no attempt to flee or conceal itself. Hansen continued to document the orb as it reappeared over his house, each night shrinking slightly “as though passing slowly into the spirit world,” Hansen observed. On particularly cloudy nights, the orb would not be present, prompting Hansen to speculate that ghosts may be allergic to thunder.
