    I hope someone can give me advice on a videotape I would like to have
    dubbed to either VHS or DVD formats. The challenge is that it's a tape
    shot in 1969 using a Sony Porta-Pack portable video recorder, which I
    believe was a CV-2000. Actually the camera and recorder had a General
    Electric badge on it but it was Sony
    made. Do you have any ideas on where I can get this transfered? I'm
    in Southern California, but anywhere would work. Thanks in advance for
    any help or suggestions you can make. ...John

    VidPax at http://www.vidipax.com/ in New York has been recommended before on
    this group and are proably one of the few facilities in the U.S. that can
    still handle that format.

    who shot with a Sony Porta-Pack in college in 1973 :)

    Thank you, Mike. Just what I needed. The tape was shot at our wedding
    35 years ago and for a surprise I hope to bring it back to life.
    Thanks for helping point the way. ...John

    Thanks, Andy. I spoke to AVRS this morning and they have just what I
    need. This for a tape shot at our wedding and unseen for 35 years.
    I'm about to be a hero. Thanks...John
