Standard Def Tape to Digital File Conversion
We can Digitize your old standard def video tape formats to either SD video files or we can upconvert them to Hi-def files. We use the Teranex for a hardware video conversion which is industry standard and much better quality then software conversions done on a computer. Software conversions can often lead to video problems such as aliasing (stairstepping), motion lag, frame blending, and freeze frames, or repeated frames.
We can work with any format from Digital Betacam, which almost every TV show and movie was recorded on for a 5 year period in the ’90s, all the way down to your old VHS tapes that are still taking up space in your closet. Old consumer level formats will gradually decay over time and lose much of the color and vibrance that they originally had back when they were shot. Once those tapes have been converted to digital files, they will no longer degrade, and stay in the same condition forever. Of course they can also be copied and saved over and over again, as well as edited in any number of computer programs such as final cut pro.
We can convert any of these standard def tape formats to file.
- Digital Betacam (or digi-beta)

- 3/4 Inch
