Did you know that the life expectancy of videotape and DVDR is only 10 years?

More information about media preservation

If you have priceless videotape, time is ticking away.

Once they are gone, there is nothing that can be done.

ESV Teleproductions has the answer to those questions.

This is our new consumer videotape transfer station.

We have just obtained 2 RTI TapeChek videotape evaluation cleaning machines.

These machines prepare your tapes for transfer. Due to the age of most videotapes,

there has been deterioration of the binder (glue) on the tape often making the tape un-playable.

Tapes with edge damage, wrinkles or creases cannot be fixed,

but we will do our best to save your valuable memories.

Videotape deteriorates on a daily basis, don't wait, get them in now.


Broadcast monitors, Waveform and Vectorscopes allow us to confirm accurate color and brightness.

The video signal is passed through Snell and Wilcox TBC/Frame Synchronizers that stabalize your video

and permit us to adjust the color, brightness and contrast


We can convert your priceless videotapes to either Archival grade DVDR, Digital Files (suitable for editing) or BluRay media.

If you have VHS, VHS-C, S-VHS, 8MM, Hi 8, Digital 8, Betacam, Betacam SP, Betacam SX, DVCam, DV, DVCPro, DVCProHD or U-Matic,

you should act at once.

We can preserve your important video material for you.
