Your memories are fading — the time to preserve them is now!

Assuming your VCR hasn’t already “eaten” them, the average lifespan of your home videotapes is only 15 years! Slides begin to degrade at around 20 years.

We operate one of the largest and most successful home movie and photo digitizing companies in America. We're located right here in the USA, in Chattanooga, TN. We've been in transferring home videos and photos for over 10 years, and so far, more than 250,000 families have trusted us.

We've invested in a state-of-the-art digitization plant to enable us to preserve millions of home movies and photos at scale, delivering a safe and secure process for our customers.

If you’re like most people, your family history is tucked away in an attic somewhere. Most people are surprised at the degradation that has already occurred when they finally decide to look at them again. In steps Southtree — we convert all your home movies and photos to digital, preserving them for generations to come!

If you’re hoping to view your old family memories on a TV, then the DVD will be just fine. Our DVDs are a great way to gather friends and family for a night of laughs, joy, and reminiscing, as you view your memories together.

However, if you are looking for a more flexible digital file format, we've got you covered! Our customers love the USB thumb drives or digital download options. It's not Thanksgiving or Christmas every weekend, and that makes it difficult to gather your friends and family around a TV to view DVDs. A thumb drive or digital download provides you with digital files that are easy to share with friends and family far away. They are also the perfect way to backup, store, or edit your videos and photos. 

With Southtree, you can order a digital file by selecting a USB thumb drive or digital download during the ordering process. Why do you want one? There are a million and one reasons why, but here are just a few:

  • Backing up to places like Dropbox
  • Viewing on your computer
  • Editing on your computer
  • Storing on your hard drive
  • Uploading to online video platforms, like YouTube or Vimeo
  • Sharing with friends and family
