Video 8mm Tapes

The video 8 from at was pioneered by Sony in about 1985, subsequently evolving into 3 sub formats: video 8, Hi 8 and digital 8.

The video format has now been consigned to history, with the last camcorder being sold out over 14 years ago. The problem now is with the lack of functioning camcorder/players, people are unable to access their family memories contained in this format. There is also a problem of forward and backward compatibility; eg video 8 won't play Hi 8 or digital 8 and digital 8 won't play standard video 8. Finding secondhand players is problematic as these units would almost certainly have worn heads, tape guides etc, making playback of tapes difficult.

Cineclair Productions has extensive facilities to cater for all formats of video 8 and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Call us today.
