What You'll Get
Converting from analog to digital can prolong enjoyment of old movies or improve chances when asking a DVD player's father for its hand in marriage. Start a beautiful relationship with today's Groupon: for $25, you get digitization and preservation services for five videotapes, up to two hours in length each, at Home Movie Preservation Center in Scottsdale (a $49.75 value).
Home Movie Preservation Center liberates videotaped memories from formats both outdated and prone to decay during video digitization and preservation services. Experienced transfer technicians process each treasured tape on state-of-the-art digitization equipment, preserving first birthdays and first birthdays entirely spent staring, unblinking, into the lens of a video camera on high-quality DVDs. Accepted formats include all major types of videotapes, including VHS, VHS-C, Video 8, Hi8, Digital 8, and MiniDV. Each DVD is capable of holding up to two hours of footage, which the preservation professionals can divide into five-minute chapters for easy navigation. Though turnaround may vary, Home Movie Preservation Center generally finishes each project in two–three weeks, at which time they return both the completed DVD and all original materials in the same condition in which they were received, removing only ambient laugh tracks that play every time the funny neighbor stops by.

About Home Movie Preservation Center
Great-grandmas and flat-screen TVs don't have much in common. But if one were to draw a Venn diagram for the two, they would overlap with Home Movie Preservation Center. Equipped with digital tools, the center's team of video technicians rescues home footage of great-grandmas and other memories from deteriorating formats and gives it a new home on high-quality DVDs. The staff is adept at filling their DVDs with transfers from an array of media types, including photos, slides, and audiocassettes and VHS, MiniDV, 8mm, and Super 8mm film.
