Video and Film Transfers

Transferring films, slides, photos and video tapes to digital are all in a days work at Carpel Video.  We have been transferring film to DVD for 15 years. Many customers want their content transferred to DVD’s and/or USB, enabling them to download movies to their computer,  Facebook or YouTube. Digitizing precious video to a DVD/USB will save it for the next generation. In the 21st century, there are many choices of where to put your home movies. Experienced computer wonks choose the cloud, which is essentially a private computer hard drive on a server managed by a third party, often for free. The drawback is that there nothing tangible to put in the closet photo box. To share videos, it’s YouTube, and photos on Facebook have become the places to show off photos and video. We also provide Super 8, Reg 8 and 16MM film conversion services.  Keep your memories safe and have them available to upload anywhere.

The point is Carpel Video is enabling people to store and view their personal films, photos, slides and videos easily, without hassle or big cost. We’ll transfer and manage as much or as little as you want. Call us for an estimate. Transferring tape to DVD or USB costs as little as $14.25 per hour of  video Now there is no excuse to put off saving your family’s history to DVD/USB.
