The VCRs and VHS tapes, which we bought to record home movies and other collectibles, represent a technology that has been all but replaced by DVD and Blu-ray systems. This was due to simple economies of scale, (cheaper, easier to store, etc.) and a perceived improved durability of the discs. But who doesn't have an old tape with a wedding or other family gathering lying around, waiting for conversion to newer media?

John offers two types of conversion to DVD services: simple 1:1 dubbing; and conversion-plus-editing, which includes re-sequencing where needed, and adding of titles and other video goodies. Visit the web site for a list of other video related services.
