Sometimes we have to save the patient. Family memory was in bad shape when it was brought in.

Film-Slides-Videotape are on the endangered species list.  Film from your childhood (or your parents – grandparents) 8mm, Super 8mm, 35mm and medium format slides and the variety of Videotape formats like Betamax, VHS and 8mm are not only out of style, they are out of date.  Never mind trying to find a videotape player.

On a side note I have found it funny that VHS beat out Betamax, when Beta was better.  The marketing genius at VHS worked a deal with the movie companies to offer their movies on the VHS format.  So, if you wanted to rent a movie you were forced to buy a VHS player.  So even though the VHS format was not the better format – they forced themselves on the public.  Do not worry, the Beta format went on to be used by broadcast TV and production houses.

At DW Video we were using BetacamSP for editing.   Now videotape is a poor standard for of your memories –we are seeing tapes tapes for the 80’s beginning to have problems. At DW Video we understand the importance of perfectly preserving your Film-Slides-Videotape.


Memories transferred is our job… such a rewarding feeling when the client sees his parents and grandparents when they were young.

25 foot 8mm film from the late 1930’s early 40’s. Cool Stuff. All Black and White and the cars….

Your memories are precious and priceless.  Do not send to a box store that in return ships them out.  Bring them to DW Video and all work is done in-house.  Since 1984 we have transferred over 100,000 feet of film, unsure how many slides and hours of videotape we have transferred for families to enjoy and share.

Before the film fades, breaks or gets lost.  Before the videotape gets gummed up and does not work. Contact Duane at DW Video, West Michigan’s resource for Film-Slides-Videotape transfers.

A customer brought in 2 cassettes to have an audio transfer to CD ad Mp3. He did this to give to his brother who was in hospice care. He brought them in on Monday, worked late Monday evening so he could have them on Tuesday. His brother had the opportunity to listen to the Cd’s. Neil, the brother passed away early Thursday. His brother Chris said the CDs brought his brother comfort. I send along my thoughts and prayers to the family.

LPs & Tapes Transferred To CDs & MP3s – DIY or Have DW Video do it?

I really hate talking myself out of work – however being honest and realistic also is important.  Gentleman called and he has records – cassettes from the past 45 years and needs them transferred to CD.

All Work done in-house

My response “are these available on CD via Amazon, Ebay etc”?    If they are then it is more economical to purchase them that way.

At DW Video we have labor involved and for the most part a 70 minute transfer is between $25 and $35 to make the master – $5-$3 for copies depending on quality.

To transfer your record collection we may not be your best option based on cost – we can do it, if you have the budget.

Other than finding the CD on-line you could do it yourself.  I like DAK for these types of products.  Like – this is what you need to do the audio transfer project.  Great for the do it yourself person.  You will need a turntable, cassette player and with the software you are ready to go.

For all of your audio to cd or mp3 transfer work – contact DW Video 231-937-5420.

Thank you
