Digital Ingest

Analog Video Tape

All analog tape formats are digitized using the best analog output the format has, whether it be component, composite or Y/C. Analog signals are then digitized to 10Bit uncompressed video and 48khz 24 bit audio SDI signal. Our facility is equipped with digital routing to any capture station. The only compression applied is that of the codec requested by the customer.

 

Analog Tape Formats: Beta SP, Beta,

Betamax, MII, 1”, 3/4”, VHS, Hi8, 8mm.

 

Tape Formats: HDCAMSR, HDCam, Digital Betacam, Beta SP, Beta, IMX, Beta SX,

HDV, DVCam, DV, DVCPRO, D2, MII, 1”, 3/4”, VHS, Betamax, D3, Hi8, 8mm, Digital8.

 

Any of these can be converted to a digital file in a wide variety of file formats. When capturing the video, it is always captured at its highest quality using the best interface possible.

 

 

Digital Video Tape

Digital tape formats utilize the SDI output on the playback units so we can offer a digital copy of the data on the tape. The video is never compressed unless it is to the codec of the target format.

For HDV, DV, and DVCam we can capture either the SDI video or the datastream on the tape.

 

Digital Tape Formats: HDCAMSR, HDCam, Digital Betacam, IMX, Beta SX, HDV, DVCam, DV, DVCPRO, D2, D3, Digital8.
