Memories are best preserved on long-lasting mediums, which is why the Egyptians carved hieroglyphs into stone and Hollywood stars leave their handprints in fruitcake. Keep history close at hand with today’s Groupon: for $9, you get one VHS or camcorder tape up to 120-minutes long transferred to a DVD at Home Video Studio in Beverly (a $19.95 value).
Digital expert Anthony McCall transmutes deteriorating VHS tapes and other obsolete media onto long-lasting archival DVDs. Customers bring in up to 120 minutes of recorded tennis matches or raw footage of picnicking grizzlies on a single VHS, VHS-C, 8mm, Hi8 tape, MiniDV, or MiniDVD. Chapters are inserted automatically, making it easier to impress dates with marathon finish-line footage without having to fast-forward through grade-school shot-for-shot remakes of The Seventh Seal.
