What You Get

Enjoy Your Memories on Any Device

Our Betamax to digital and DVD conversion service allows you to revisit your cherished moments using any of your modern devices. Choose from our convenient and secure storage options, including DVDs with a 100-year archival lifespan, USB flash drives, or immediate digital downloads.

Turn Old Betamax Tapes into Digital Treasures

Preserving Betamax and Betacam tapes is crucial as these video formats have a limited lifespan, typically ranging from 10 to 25 years before deterioration begins to set in. Converting these tapes to digital or DVD (sooner rather than later) not only ensures the footage is protected from further decay or damage that physical media is susceptible to, but also makes them easily accessible and shareable for years to come.

Your video memories, whether personal or professional, deserve to be protected against the passage of time. Nostalgic Media makes it safe, fast, and affordable to transform your Betamax and Betacam tapes into a lasting digital format, securing your memories and enabling you to relive them with ease. Don't let your memories fade away – digitize your Betamax tapes today and preserve your legacy for future generations.

& Top-Organizations

  • "Very thrilled

    with the outcome of the 70 year old slides that you converted to digital files for me. The end product was a lot better than I expected. This was the first time I have seen pictures of my father from when he was a young boy in the 1950s. He passed last year and these keepsakes are very treasured."

    Stephen S.

  • "I was very pleased

    with Nostalgic Media. First, leading up to placing my order, I called them and got someone on the phone immediately, no 1 minute recording. My questions were answered and I submitted my material and payment. The sending was quick and I was notified of shipping dates. Would use their services again."

    Tom R.

  • "Nostalgic media delivered

    just as they advertised. They converted my 55+ year old 8mm reels into digital media and now my family can relive some golden moments that I had feared were lost to memory. They were fast and gave me a product better than what I had hoped for. I recommend them without hesitation."

Frequently Asked Questions

Common Questions About Our Beta to Digital Service

  • No. Each video tape is converted to a separate archival grade DVD. We create our DVDs according to industry standards for Video and Data DVDs. Our DVDs will play on nearly any stand-alone DVD player. If your DVD player was manufactured after 2001 and reads DVD-R media (the most common type), it’s likely to play the DVD. Some Blu-Ray players will not play any type of recordable media, please consult your player's owner's manual to determine compatibility with DVD-R type media.

  • Other video formats we transfer include: VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, MiniDV, Hi8/Video8/Digital8, Beta, PAL, and 3/4" U-matic.

  • While some tracking issues can be alleviated, we cannot guarantee tracking issues will be eliminated completely. Tape age and deterioration play an important factor in tape quality.
