With the invention of the camcorder, memorabilia and keepsakes became as obsolete as cuneiform tablets of elementary-school plays. Embrace new technology with today's Groupon: for $9, you get up to 120 minutes of VHS or camcorder tape converted to DVD from Home Video Studio (up to a $29.95 value). The conversion may be from one or multiple tapes.
Home Video Studio audio-visual wizard Miguel Salas preserves homegrown memories by salvaging footage from decay-prone VHS or camcorder film and transferring it to an archival DVD. Converted discs guard against age more effectively than older magnetic-tape preservation, and Miguel transfers each frame from VHS, VHS-C, Betamax, 8mm, Hi8 tape, MiniDV, and MiniDVD formats into easy-to-store digital glory. Chapter markers are automatically inserted at breaks in filming, allowing discerning viewers to skip through their siblings' break-dance recitals and get straight to the cold-case evidence of a murdered 11th-birthday piñata.
