Similar to a mitzvah video, confirmation is a rite or sacrament of initiation that is practiced in different ways in many Western churches, from Catholic to Protestant. The purpose varies, but it generally serves to induct younger members of the church as full congregants.
Celebrate your young person's accomplishment! While a confirmation is traditionally not as formal as a First Communion, gifts and videotaping can nevertheless be involved. If you have confirmation video for your child – maybe from years in the past – preserve your videos on a confirmation DVD so they last forever.
The major problem with videotapes is that they wear out. Every time you play a video tape, the VCR's heads are slowly wiping the content away. If you've noticed the video quality of your tapes diminishing, you're not imagining it – it's probably happening.
Videotape to DVD transfer solves that problem. Your tapes can be digitized and the video can be authored to a long-lasting DVD. These discs are resistant to scratches and time. Future generations will easily be able to watch all the religious ceremonies that were important to your family.
