8mm to DVD - Video8
A Little History
The 8 mm video format refers to three related videocassette formats. These are the original Video8 format and its improved successor Hi8, as well as a more recent digital format known as Digital8.
The format was created and launched in 1984 by Eastman Kodak, but Kodak withdrew from the market very early before it was established. In 1985 Sony introduced the Handycam, one of the first Video8 cameras with commercial success. Much smaller than the competition's VHS and Betamax video cameras, Video8 became very popular.
As with any media, they will eventually deteriorate and lose their recorded contents over time, resulting in a build up of image noise and dropouts. Tapes older than 15 years may start to show signs of degradation. Amongst other problems, they can become sticky and jam playback units or become brittle and snap. 8 mm video format.
