I know that the tape quality was awful and that it was a pain to work with, but we are very very pleased to see what you could salvage of our home movies! I have already started telling friends (one of which has a big box of home movies just waiting to be converted)!

What You'll Get

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 to Hourglass Media. Choose between the following options:

  • For $12, you get a videotape of any length transferred to DVD (a $29.95 value).
  • For $100, you get up to 500 feet of 8mm or Super 8mm film transferred to DVD (up to a $225 value).

Hourglass Media's expert video archivists fire up disc burners to transform an 8mm, Hi-8, Digital 8, Beta, VHS, VHS-C, miniDV, HDV, or DVCAM videotape of any length into a shiny new DVD. Customers can also choose to drop off up to 500 feet of 8mm or Super 8mm film, and then let the film gurus use the latest technology and magical incantations to clean film, make custom edits, and capture each analogue frame at 1080p resolution before scaring video memories onto a digital disc complete with on screen menus. Meanwhile, family videographers can view a time coded copy of each film job, and then tell Hourglass Media's staff where they would prefer the beginning and end points of every scene to be. Film transfers include four DVD copies, disc artwork, and custom DVD sleeves perfect for warming discs during the cold, cold winter.

About Hourglass Media

The media pros at Hourglass Media transform old recordings and photographs into high-quality digital files with their advanced, onsite equipment. During film transfers, a technician converts 8-milimetre and Super 8 film to uncompressed files on DVD, ensuring picture fidelity with 700 lines of resolution. Analog media such as audio cassettes, VHS tapes, and vinyl LPs metamorphose into any digital file format, allowing patrons to load old songs onto iPods, share home movies over the internet, and replace every sound on the family computer with an old recording of grandpa snoring. Slide and photo transfers pull the same trick with old pictures and custom video editing further polishes heirloom moving pictures or important present-day footage.
