Video to DVD vs Video to Digital File Transfer
More and more people are requesting to have their videotapes transferred to digital files rather than DVDs these days.
A DVD disc is to last 50-100 years as long as it is handled properly. The main concern about DVDs today is "Will there be DVD players around in years down the road?" Nobody knows for certain but newer computers don't come with a DVD drive so that could be telling us something.
For so many years, we were transferring everything to DVDs. But over the last few years, more and more people are having everything transferred to flash drives, hard drives, or the cloud instead of discs.
A customer's age can be a factor whether they want everything transferred to DVDs or digital files. We also see a lot of families who order both ways so the grandparents can have the discs while the kids and grandkids have the digital files.
Another great selling point of having your tapes transferred to a flash drive is that you can simply hook it up to a smart TV and watch your precious family memories.
We are now seeing Video to DVD Transfer customers from our first few years in business who now want everything transferred into digital files instead of the DVD.
Another factor that can affect their decision is the difference in costs to transfer videotapes. https://www.duplicationmedia.com/
It takes less time for us to transfer straight to a DVD rather than into the computer, create the files, and then transfer onto a flash drive.
Whichever option you choose to have your precious family memories preserved on, we strongly suggest having a back up made.
Duplication Media can work with more then 20 different formats of videotapes ranging from consumer, professional, and broadcast.
