Video8, 8mm (PAL, NTSC) Video Tape Transfer to file

Complete pricing below.

Video8 (original 8mm tape) is a standardized analog color video tape format developed by Eastman Kodak in 1984.  The Kodak camcorder was manufactured by Matsushita and 8mm tapes by TDK.  The Video8 format was designed to make small compact camcorders possible.  The format is standardized so tapes can be interchangeably recorded and played back in machines made by different manufacturers.  Sony commercialized the format with the Handicam in 1985.  The Video8 format has approx. 240 lines of resolution.  The 8mm tape is often identified as P6-120 or Video8 and plays for 120 minutes in NTSC SP mode and 240 minutes in LP mode (85 minutes PAL SP and 170 minutes PAL LP mode).  The tape is 8 mm (5/16-inches) wide and measures 3-11/16 x 2-3/8 x 9/16 inches.  Playback equipment is available.
