Convert your tapes to files on USB (.mp4)
Video tapes are a thing of the past. As popular as they were in the 90s, society has moved on to bigger and better things. But that doesn't mean that all of those memories you have stored away should be forgotten!
Here at MVP, we have been handling all sorts of older format video tapes for decades (see our list to the right). Our services include lifting the content from your old video tapes and converting them to a digital file (MP4). Easily stored and orderly, this is the only way to preserve your home videos.The sad truth is that video tapes can--and will-- deteriorate over the coming years. Before long, the audio will fade and the video will be lost forever. Don’t lose these precious memories. Have MVP bring them back to life and transfer them to video files.

Here's what we do:
- All the work will be done here in our Indianapolis office. Your videos are NOT shipped to another company. The people you meet here will be the same people working on your files.
- We will convert any size order, whether you have one tape or hundreds.
- Digitize each of of your tapes and convert it to a quality MP4 file (H.264). This file format is very common and provides quality video with a relatively small file size.
- Name each MP4 file with a date, event or whatever you like.
- Copy all your MP4 files to your storage device.
- In general, a two-hour video will require about 3GB of space. Higher bitrates (video quality) are also available.
- You can provide a USB drive (empty) or portable hard drive for your files. We also have a variety of drives for purchase.
Price and Turnaround
- A two-hour video is $15.95 (from most consumer formats).
- When we receive your tapes, we will give you an estimate of the total cost and the expected completion date.
- Often for small orders, we can complete it within a few business days.
Some facts to think about:
- The file format is H.264 (.mp4). This is the most common video file. Whether you are PC or Mac, this file format works great!
- Sometimes called "USB Video", the USB is simply the device that stores the video. The video will be saved as an .mp4 file.
- Once digitized, you can play them on your computer, phone, iPad or other tablet. You can also edit them in iMovie, Windows Movie Maker, or other editing software.
- Remember: Video stored on magnetic tapes like VHS and 8mm deteriorate over time. Don't let those memories disappear!
