Air lets you capture home movies in two ways—

Digitize your old stuff

Mail in your old home movies! We'll convert them into digital videos you can watch on any device.

Record new memories 

Use our app to record unlimited video on your phone! Transform your existing device into the perfect family camcorder.

Now you can stream your memories on any device!

Digitize your old stuff!

Some of our most treasured memories are housed in DVDs and VHS tapes in the attic. We believe these moments are too precious to lose, and we need a way to preserve them forever. 

Through our service, old home movie can be digitized for modern storage and playback on any device. 

Here's how it works—

  

 

Once digitized, your memories can be enjoyed on any device

Secure Handling

The safety of your videos is our highest priority. We send over special packing materials to ensure your cherished memories are safe in transit, and track your box each step of the way.

Once your videos arrive at our facility, our team of experts handles them with the utmost care. Each individual is specially trained in the art of old media conversion and restoration; and, often times, videos that are slightly damaged, can even be repaired and secured. 

After the videos are digitized, we make redundant backups of your files and import the home movies directly onto Air. Upon upload, your originals are returned for safekeeping and your new modern formats live wherever you are, whenever you need them. 

We built Air to help you store, enjoy, and share your memories on any device, but the videos are yours to download or delete at any time. We will never restrict you from accessing your content.

Record new memories!

As kids, our home movies were captured by mom and dad with handheld camcorders. Today, our smartphones come with HD cameras, but our apps aren’t built for making these videos. They run out of space, compress our files, and make it hard to share across devices.

We built Air to let you record, store, and stream unlimited home movies. No time limits, no storage limits. Just record, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Automatically synced to the cloud as you record

Every video is instantly viewable in your app and on the web

Thank You!

To our contributors,

Your support, no matter how small, means the world to us. We simply can’t thank you enough.

Home movies have been a constant reminder of who we are and where we came from. In our own lives, these magically authentic videos are our most cherished memories; and at Air, we want to address the technological limitations that have caused this content to disappear.

So send us your old videos! Years of footage can now be accessed when you need it. And get out there and capture more! Film for 20 minutes or 20 seconds: The family camcorder has been reborn.

We’re so excited to have you join us on Air and are always around if you have any questions.

With love,

Tyler & Shane

Risks and challenges

These are your most prized memories, and we vow to treat them with the care and respect they deserve.

Our logistics partner has been managing media transit for the last 30 years and has dedicated representatives with 24/7 support so that we never lose sight of your content in transit. Media conversion is similarly handled with care, and our digitization partner will take every precaution to ensure the migration process moves smoothly. Having said that, issues can arise during either of these steps and we want you to know that we will do everything we can to be communicative and rectify the situation.

Our cloud storage infrastructure has been tested at scale, but software is susceptible to bugs and breaches. While we will do everything we can to ensure your videos are secure, unforeseen circumstances could cause videos to be lost or temporarily unavailable. We plan to use the latest security protocols to manage through this risk as it is our utmost priority to ensure your media is safe.

While our goal is to deliver this service before the holidays, budget constraints or team setbacks could cause a delay in delivery. Our partners are busiest during November and December, so there may also be unforeseen delays in our supply chain. Tyler and I have run and scaled products before, and we intend to stick to our timeline as defined.

We launched on Kickstarter in an attempt to build trust and community among a group of people who love home movies. We take this mission very seriously and hope you’ve gotten a sense for how committed we are to deliver on this promise.
