Best Video Transfer Service in Spokane.

Digitize your analog film, tapes, and slides to digital.

It is important to protect and save your memories. We Professionally inspect every tape you give us and make sure it’s done right! We deliver your files to you on a USB or a Hard Drive. We no longer transfer to DVD or Blu-Ray disks. By using USBs or Hard Drives you can transfer the video files to your computer, make copies for the family, and even upload them to your favorite video-sharing site like YouTube.

How long does it take to transfer video?

Most transfer jobs can be completed in 1 month or less; depending on how much you bring in and how many transfers we have. CutBoard handles everything in-house. This means you don’t have to worry about shipping damage. And because we are a local Spokane company it is easy for us to make changes.

What kind of film or tape can CutBoard transfer to digital?

CutBoard can transfer your 8mm film, Super 8mm film, 8mm tapes, Hi8, DVCPro, MiniDV, Betamax, VHS, SVHS, VHS-C, Records, Cassette Tapes, Mini-Cassettes, 35mm film, and slides. Have a box full of stuff and you’re not sure what kind you have, bring it in and we’ll help you out.

I had all my old 8mm and mini8 put on to a hard drive. Haven’t been able to watch these for along time. CutBoard did a great job! Nothing was labeled but somehow put mostly in order. Highly recommend. I like they are local in Spokane, so I didn’t have to mail all my memories.
