Videotape transfer

video tapes

       Did you know your old videotapes are deteriorating with each passing year?

       Why?  Videotapes are made of magnetic material with a binder and base.

       Over time the binder that holds the magnetic material to the base breaks down.

       This can make the image look fuzzy or snowy and can cause shedding and dropouts.

       Channell Media can transfer your old videotapes to DVD so you can enjoy your family memories

       for years to come.




Photo Scanning 

35mm slides      Let Channell Media scan your treasured photos at 300 or 600 dpi (dots per inch).

     300 dpi files are great for viewing, sharing, or making similar sized reprints,

     while 600 dpi is best for archiving and enlargements of your photo.

     Natural disasters, sun exposure, improper storage and time can all damage your photos.

     Converting your photos into a digital image will help preserve your memories for future generations.

     Once your images are transferred you can enjoy them on your electronic devices.
