What You'll Get
Like an old pair of sweatpants, VHS tapes can become too worn and sweaty to work properly. Turn your ratty tapes into crystal-clear DVD memories with today's Groupon to ScanDiego. Choose between the following options:
- For $19, you get three VHS tapes transferred to DVD (a $57 value).
- For $49, you get 200 slides transferred to a DVD slideshow (a $107 value).
ScanDiego artfully preserves fading memories for future generations with the conversion of aging slides and VHS tapes to DVD format. Friendly staffers free trapped memories from tapes' 12-year average life span with VHS conversion, preserving shots of a couple's first dance, a child's first words, or a revealing Court TV audition tape. The store can transfer a variety of home-video formats, including VHS, VHS-C, and PAL, into DVDs of up to two hours in length each, creating easy access to favorite tape time capsules. For memories encapsulated in slide form, ScanDiego uses a high-quality 4000 dpi scanner to pick up fading films' every nuance before transferring it to DVD. These 200 slides then form a slideshow running across screens that keep memories fresh and crystalline clear. Transfers generally take one to two weeks, quickly returning the original media to new DVDs that serve as the brain’s external hard drive.

About Scan Diego
The tech-savvy staff of family-owned media shop ScanDiego transfers precious memories and valuable info stored on analog media to more durable, digitized formats that can easily be stored, saved, and shared. Customers can choose any one of the company’s conversion options, including 8mm and 16mm film transfers and a videotape-to-DVD service that preserves the quality and lifespan of precious home videos.
Not limited to moving pictures, techs round up loose family photos, slides, and negatives and herd them into JPEG format for easy storage on a disc, eliminating the need to strap a projector, portrait studio, or photography professor to your back each time you visit a friend’s house. The talented staffers also use pictures to whip up 10-minute DVD slideshows that make ideal communal eye fare for birthdays, anniversaries, and dinner parties.
