Default Insight Technician Training Videos

Hi there, former insight owner here. I'm moving and clearing out my closet, and found some old insight training videos from Honda Canada. (THEY ARE VHS)

I'd like to see them find a good home, and wanted to guage interest on here before putting them out to pasture.

I'm in Toronto Canada and could ship them out to wherever.

This is incredible.

Does anyone here have the ability//equipment needed to digitize VHS tapes?

I'll buy them and figure that out if no one else already knows how.

My initial reaction is that they must be copy write material, so delicacy is required.

First priority I'd say is take physical possession since he is clearing out. Nothing wrong with that afaik.

Then, it may be necessary to obtain permission to distribute. You/we should think that through.

I think one can still buy VHS players on eBay. That might be a good first step to evaluating which ones to digitize.

and, and, and take it from there

It is important to get them transferred to CD's. The VHS will only degrade further. CD's can be copied any number of times without them losing quality. As for copyrights, I just do not think Honda of America is going to come after a small group of folks who are crazy about one of Honda's worst selling but most interesting cars.

Get them transferred. If you do not want to do it I'll take them to the local electronics shop that does it. They are invaluable.

Default Likely generic..

I think these will be very similar to the ones we already have on here and on YT.

Generic worldwide G1 videos with perhaps a few Canadian specific bits.

That's doesn't mean we should not get them to check them out and preserve them anyway...

It might be a revelation..

I suspect similar to this etc..

Someone must get these VHS tapes and have them converted to CD's. I am willing to get it done. It's the least I can do for all the good help I have gotten from you folks. Send them to me and it will be done.

CDs? Why use another dead format? Just upload to Vimeo or something.

I can digitize VHS tapes. If I can get my hands on them, I'll convert them.
