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.

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.
