Our Process

How Our Video Conversion Service Works

Our home video transfer service makes it simple to safeguard your precious memories while ensuring a secure and organized process. Here's how it all comes together:

  • Safe Tracking: Once your tapes arrive at our secure processing lab, each tape is meticulously labeled with a unique identification number. This number is tied to your specific order, providing a secure and traceable path for your memories throughout the conversion process.
  • Tape Assessment: We carefully assess each of your videotapes to ensure they are in suitable condition for conversion. There's no charge for blank or damaged tapes that can't be converted.
  • 100-Year Archival DVDs: By default, each tape you send us will be expertly transferred to a separate 100-year archival DVD, ensuring long-lasting preservation.
  • Digital File Options: Want digital copies of your videos? No problem! If you choose to add digital files to your service, each tape will also receive a separate digital file.
  • Digital Delivery: If your order has fewer than 4 tapes with added digital files, your files will be returned on a DVD data disc. If you prefer, you can opt for a USB flash drive or a digital download link. For orders of 4 or more tapes with added digital files, we include a free USB flash drive.
  • Originals Returned: All original media will be returned with your completed order, along with their digitized copies. DVDs and/or digital files will be labeled with the same unique identification numbers found on each video cassette.

& 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."
