Together we shall live in digital infamy

Diamond VC500 One Touch Video Capture Device
We at G@H want to take a minute to discuss endangered species.  The Black Rhino. The Tree KangarooThe Giant Panda.  Home video captured on a VHS tape.  These videos contain all of the triumphs and blunders that shaped our youth from our first steps to the junior high talent show where we showcased our MC Hammer dance moves.  And, yes, we deserved to win. Our home movies also serve as a chronology of those well-intended but ill-advised hairstyles of the 80s and 90’s.  A rat tail, really Mike? The sum of our past experience molds us into the gentlemen we are today, and we must preserve these images.

That is why we recommend transferring old family videos from videotape to digital using the Diamond VC500 One Touch Video Capture Device.  This little gadget does a lot. And, it couldn’t be easier to use. The VC500 connects to the VCR via standard audio visual cables and to the computer with a standard USB plug.  Simply press play on your VCR and the VC500’s one-touch record button. Presto! Your family videos have a new digital home: a sanctuary free of the degradation and humiliation of their former analog videocassette.  Save these memories now before they follow the hyper color t-shirt and slap bracelet into extinction.
