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 $39, you get $100 worth of video-to-DVD transfer and slide and photo scanning at Denevi Digital Imaging Services in Hayward.
Denevi Digital Imaging lengthens the life of filmed memories by sealing them away in a digital capsule. Using software developed in-house, Denevi frees the past from antiquated media such as VHS and Beta tapes and slaps it onto a shiny new DVD, sending old recordings through time just like a flattened T-1000. The data tinkerers will grant digital citizenship to as many as five two-hour tapes documenting a child's progression from a crayon graffiti artist to an older crayon graffiti artist or cram up to 533 feet of movie film into a much smaller compartment for safekeeping. Customers also have the option of applying their Groupon toward scanning up to 256 photos (up to 8"x10" in size) or 35 mm slides or mixing and matching Denevi's services to meet the specific demands of their shoeboxed collections.
Denevi Digital Imaging's process produces the sharpest digitization possible, and the company develops its own software for creating DVD jackets that permit customers to proudly display the finished products, whether they hold precious birthdays, weddings, or a video of going to the movies with a favorite VHS camcorder.

Frank Denevi is a technical expert when it comes to photography and video transfers, but that's not the only reason he's well known in the Bay Area. In the 1960s, he was one of the first business owners in the city to appear in his own television commercials, complete with a memorable jingle: "Dublin, Berkeley, San Lorenzo, Cupertino and San Jose…"
Today, major corporations such as Kodak and Walgreens trust Frank Denevi and his son, Michael, with their media transfer needs, but the Denevis and their staff also lend their expertise to individuals. They convert home videos, photos, and slides from videotape to digital formats that can easily be read by a DVD player or plugged directly into technologically advanced brains. DVDs are archival quality and come with protective poly cases; the playable discs include easy to use chapter mark navigation.
