A Place for Village Residents to Convert Vintage Media to Modern Digital Formats
The Video Lab houses the Marvin Green Memorial Capture Center, where all residents may use equipment without charge to convert their old media (including 35mm slides, VHS tapes, long-play records, cassette tapes, and digital and mini-DV video tapes) to modern digital formats. In addition, equipment is available to make multiple copies of CDs and DVDs and to design and print full-color labels on CDs and DVDs.
The Capture Center is open during regular Video Lab hours, Tuesday-Friday from 1-4 pm. Lab Supervisors assist residents with all Capture Centers services, but residents do the actual work themselves. There is a charge for supplies used such as blank CDs and DVDs and printer ink. (Bring your own blank CDs and DVDs if you wish.)
Residents using the Capture Center are invited to make a donation to the Video Club. For residents who prefer to have their legacy capture work done for them, the Video Club provides referrals to affordable resources, including Village Television.
