The digital world continues to evolve and this is really great thing. Every day something new comes on the market that can be used to help us make work easier, to improve the way we communicate, that solves business and personal issues, it’s all good, and I am happy to be a part of the changes. One problem that does arise for many of us is keeping up with the technology that is out there. For example, one of the things we help with here at AlKaye Media Group is finding solutions for folks who want to preserve older formats, videotapes, even photos. Videotapes can be transferred to today’s digital formats, which can mean long-term preservation for, for even your BETA and 8mm videotapes.
More often than not, this service is one that folks preparing for a very special birthday, an anniversary, a wedding, or a big holiday call us to request. Transferring videotape to DVD may just seem like a business service to some, but we here at AlKaye Media have seen presentations made from old videos, photos, even audio, be the one thing that many of the guests talk about for weeks after the presentation. Talk about laughter, giggling, and even the occasional tear, we’ve seen it all. There is almost a magical component to showing your friends and family times that they had probably forgotten were even captured. It really, really touches hearts. It’s one of our favorite things to do.
Not only that, but we can make copies for you to give to each guest, if you like. Talk about a wonderful party favor..and it is much more affordable than you might think. We once did a gig for a 50th wedding anniversary for a family celebrating their mom and dad’s very special achievement. They had gathered up pictures and videos from all the kids in the family, along with pictures of their parents’ special events over their years together. We put it all on DVD for them and they played it at the party. Actually, we even played it, on our large projection screen, and even we were tearing up toward the end.
Don’t store away those old memories, share them with present and future generations. I guess I don’t need to say that this is also a really, really fabulous gift, do I?
