Some in the industry will claim the useful life of videotape to be 10 years.
Having 20 plus years experience in the video industry, from Video Rental to Video Production, we know that to be a little conservative.
However, visual and/or sound quality will probably diminish at some point, over time when played.
Or, as VCRs age, and are probably used less, rubber components dry out, which can cause irreparable tape damage when played.
Save your video tape memories today for generations to come, by archiving them to DVD, which have an expected life expectancy of 50 to 100 years.
Common home video tapes we can preserve:
• Beta • S-VHS • Hi8
• VHS • S-VHS-C • Digital 8
• VHS-C • Video 8 • Mini DV
