Hi8 / Digital8 tape to DVD Transfer Service

We transfer your Hi8 & Digital8 tapes to DVD, Blu-ray or USB

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

We transfer your Hi8 tapes 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.

Also, if your tape is under 5 minutes in length, then we only charge £5.00 for the conversion!

To place an order, visit our Gravesend office, drop your tapes in to one of our drop-off points (MaidstoneTonbridgeAshford, or Ramsgate), or post your tapes to Media Transfer, The Maltings, 56 Bath Street, Gravesend, Kent DA11 0DF. Return postage is £3.95 for up to 4 tapes, £8.95 for up to 9 tapes, and FREE for orders of 10+ tapes.

Hi8 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.
