Video footage preserves family moments that might otherwise be forgotten, like the day Grandpa wiped everyone's memory with a spy drug. Bring precious records to the digital age with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $100 worth of VHS to DVD conversion from Concept One Media in Downers Grove.
Female-owned-and-operated Concept One Media has plied its array of multimedia services to update antiquated media formats for more than 25 years. Customers can gather cumbersome VHS or 8-millimeter tapes of children's birthday parties and wisdom-tooth extractions and hand them over to Concept One's specialists. Aiming to preserve precious memories, staffers activate high-tech machinery to transfer flimsy film to DVDs ($10/hour) as durable as hard hats decorated with diamonds. All video transfer is done on location, and patrons can pickup discs—primed for years of play on computers and DVD players—from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays, or evenings and weekends by appointment.
For 27 years, the female-owned-and-operated Concept One has utilized state-of-the art equipment and boundless creativity to develop clients' ideas from concept to completion. Catering to everyone from large corporations to mom-and-pop businesses, the talented team can help write a script for a video, cast it with professional actors or Julliard-trained penguins, provide directing, lighting, and sound services, and edit the final outcome. They also convert old-school, analogue media to a digital format, and can duplicate CDs and DVDs, complete with color, on-disc prints, inserts, and shrink-wrap packaging.
