Hi8 to DVD & Digital8 to DVD, Blu-ray, or MP4
Transfer all your Hi8 tapes to DVD, Blu-ray, or MP4. Wedding videos, birthdays, family holidays – Hi8 tapes deteriorate over a period of time, so make sure you do not lose those precious memories and transfer them to DVD, MP4 or Blu-ray.

We transfer your Hi8 tapes to DVD, MP4 or Blu-ray using the highest-quality players which are regularly serviced to ensure optimum picture quality. A Digital8 tape you may not be able to play at home may be perfectly playable – we are happy to check for you if you pop in and we will only charge for a successful conversion. We can even repair most tapes FREE of charge.

Prices start at just £11.99 per tape and reduce depending on the quantity you have. Scroll down for full price details, and to generate an instant quotation.

We convert NTSC Hi8 tapes at no extra cost. Also, if your Hi8 tape is under 5 minutes in length, then we only charge £5.99 for the conversion! Additional DVD copies are just £5.99.

Hi8 tape

8mm tape history

The 8mm video format refers informally to three related videocassette formats: the original Video8 (analogue recording) format; its improved successor Hi8 (analogue video and analogue audio but with provision for digital audio); and a more recent digital recording format known as Digital8.

Digital8 equipment uses the same videocassettes as analogue-recording Hi8 equipment, though the Digital8 signal is encoded digitally using the industry-standard DV codec.
