The Magic of
Home Videos

Bringing old memories back to life.

From birthdays to weddings and everything in between, home videos capture the most important moments of our lives. Yet so many are left to gather dust, either on a shelf, or in the storage of our smartphones. The truth is home videos have much more to offer than a view of the past.

A return to childhood

For many of us, childhood represents a simpler, happier time when life wasn’t as complicated as it seems today: when we went on summer vacation, chased after the ice cream van, and stayed up late talking to friends about the future. It’s the time of our life that we most associate with comfort, joy, and while there’s no going back to the past, home videos have the magical potential to bring those feelings of comfort and belonging back to life.

Seeing old faces

Beyond bringing us back in time, home videos also give us an opportunity to see those we may have lost contact with over the years. Whether it’s an older relative, your college roommate or your very first pet, home videos allow us to reconnect with the those who made us who we are.

Sharing memories

Perhaps most importantly of all, home movies allow us to share our memories with others in a way that a simple photograph or story never will. You can give your significant other a glimpse into your childhood memories that they would otherwise never see. You can show your 6-year old what your 6th birthday was like. Or you can prove to your friends how you won that race back at school.

Bringing those memories back to life

The one problem with home videos is that the older they get, the worse they look. Even footage from smartphones just a few years old looks surprisingly lacklustre next to video taken on a modern camera. The picture seems grainier, the colours seem faded, and those bright, vibrant memories can seem overshadowed by poor picture quality. Thankfully, there is a way to relive those memories as if they were filmed yesterday, and all you need to do is press play.

It may sound a bit like magic, and it looks a bit like magic too, but AI Upscaling on the new QLED 8K range actually analyses your content scene by scene, enhancing everything from colour and texture to brightness and contrast so you can breathe new life into old memories.
