Digitization of VHS Tapes

Promotion of digitization of antiquated VHS tapes

February 23, 2012

Over the next several months, the VHS tape format will be gradually discontinued on campus.  In order to continue to integrate this information into your curriculum, IT recommends that you duplicate your VHS tapes to the DVD format so you will not experience technical difficulties in the classroom.

If you do not have duplication resources, the Video Production Center (VPC) on campus will duplicate, package and label your tapes to the DVD format for a cost of $10.00 each. To obtain this service, please contact John Jessoe at 7-5981 or john.jessoe@umb.edu 

If your material is copyrighted, you must obtain written or electronic permission from the copyright holders before any commercial VHS tape can be duplicated to the DVD format.
