VHS tapes require special equipment to convert the signal from analogue to digital. If you have videos that need to be digitized, please contact the CETL (LTC@uwm.edu) to setup an appointment. The CETL offers instructors the use of a media lab for creating course related content. You can also check-out a Digitizing Pack. Using this pack, you can digitize VHS tapes at your office or home.
