Transferring footage to DVD removes the grainy quality that mars precious videos such as the birth of your first child or the hockey game that you recorded over the tape marked “birth of your first child.” Digitize baby blankets and hockey pucks with today’s Groupon: for $47, you get $118 worth of video transfer services or mixed media digitization at Audio Video Workshop in Redwood City.

Backed by electronic media degrees, the dedicated movie mavens of Audio Video Workshop transmogrify outdated tapes and reels to DVDs and hard drives with expert skill. Upgrade filmic acronyms from VHS to DVD with the basic transfer ($29 for up to two hours of film), replete with high-grade archival media for compatibility and embedded chapter marks, or opt for a premium package ($49 for up to two hours of film) with added audio and visual enhancement, DVD menu, and up to five edits per disc. After transferring footage from a blocky tape to a sleek, label-printed disc, customers can navigate their rememberings with ease, free from grainy lines, constant crackling, and dangerously sharp VHS corners.

Audio Video Workshop also upgrades antiquated movies to more computer-friendly formats. A tape to external hard drive transfer ($29 for 60 minutes in AVI for PCs, $39 for 60 minutes in Quicktime for Macs) sends old media on a seamless journey through a technological time warp, polishing vids for convenient laptop viewing. The nostalgia-minded can also opt for photo and slide scanning ($0.55+ per image), tape repair, or old-school reel transfers to safeguard memories without freezing them in carbonite.

Audio Video Workshop

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.
