YesVideo reached out to ask me if I had any videos that were stuck in the dark ages — on tape — and I have a ton. My wedding video, videos of my late-Grandmother and Grandfather, of Peanut, there are so may memories on tape we can’t view because our equipment finally wore out. Let’s face it, VHS tapes are antiquated, and there was no use in buying replacements.
We’re losing our memories. When photos were on film, we had something tangible to touch and look at after developing them. Before the advent of smartphones, etc., we were watching our videos either on a screen, or on our television, not uploading them in 6 or 15 second increments for the world to see and then forgetting about them. We’ve lost a lot with technology, but thankfully have gained technology that preserves our memories in formats for today.
The YesVideo team is made up of innovators dedicated to providing families with the ultimate experience to celebrate their memories. They hold a deep appreciation for the past, with a passion for new video and online technologies. Right now, I have a box taped up ready to send to YesVideo filled with memories. I have no idea what I’m going to see, as a lot of what’s on these videos is long forgotten. Memories we made and have tucked away on film, waiting to be rediscovered. It’s not like we can be Clark W. Griswold, finding Grandpa’s old films in the attic of his house and dressing ultra-chic in a fur stole and cap to watch them while he waits for his family to come home. (But would be cool.)
YesVideo is headquartered in Santa Clara, CA, in the heart of Silicon Valley and their East Coast production studio is located in Norcross, GA. All orders are processed in one of their US studios using the latest technology and most secure processes. And I’m trusting my videos to them. Because YesVideo believes we should all be able to revel in our memories, and that technology shouldn’t hinder that celebration. A company that’s dedicated themselves to preserving memories, while bringing them back to life, is one I get can behind.
