Digital8 to DVD or Digital service


The Digital8 tape was developed by Sony in the very late 1990’s.  It was the same size as its analogue brother & sister (video8 & Hi8), but instead, the tape was encoded digitally. This provided a much better picture and sound quality.

We’ve been transferring Digital8 to DVD for years now but over the last 10 years, there has been a big push to transfer these tapes to USB. The benefits and low cost speak for themselves. Check out what the independent reviews say about USB transfer.

But if you still want to transfer Digital8 to DVD, we can do that too.
