We have completed more than 300 tape transfer projects since 2018.
We digitize analog audio and video to digital media. You can either drop off the materials to our studio in San Leandro or picking up your items anywhere in the Bay Area. Please let us know if you have any questions or other requests.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take?
Orders of less than 10 tapes normally take two weeks. It may take a bit longer when our team is busy. Please be sure to prepare all the tapes to get digitized. For bulk orders, it may take more than two weeks unless we contact you about a problem related to the condition of your tapes.
Can you enhance the tape condition and quality?
Please inspect your tapes to make sure they are not crumpled and packed with dust and mold, we cannot process these damaged tapes as it may cause problems for our equipment. There will be NO REFUND for the rejected tapes.
The videos will be in MP4 (4:3 aspect ratio) file format. We cannot turn your videos onto HD or 4K quality, you really have to be realistic about your expectations as these old media formats were never designed to be blown up on a modernized media. The quality of your digitized videos will be as good as the original tapes.
What if my tapes are blank?
You can send another tape as a replacement. Here at Haribon, we have to take time to scan the entire tape to ensure if it’s really empty, and we offer great deals here and there are no refunds and/or discounts for blank tapes, regardless if the tape is full or not.
How do digital download works?
We upload your videos on Google Drive, and the access link will be good for 1 MONTH to download your videos. Digital download is more convenient to share your videos with your loved ones and friends.
Why don't you create DVDs?
In order for you to watch your DVD, you need a DVD player or a DVD drive on a computer to watch, they are becoming limited in our time. In the future, they’ll have to reconvert DVD to MP4 format.
DVDs were a game-changer in the ’90s. We encourage everyone to be forward-thinking.
