PROFESSIONAL HDCAM BROADCAST TAPE CONVERSION OXFORD OXFORDSHIRE UK
We transfer, copy and convert professional broadcast video tapes to DVD and editable File Formats. Broadcast tapes are the superior video and sound tapes to standard tapes. These can be converted to digital file or DVD. Video tapes have been commercially available since 1956 but unfortunately those with open reels are the most prone to deterioration due to their acetate based tape giving a sticky shed syndrone that is very hard to convert. These were typically used in broadcast or studio recordings. We would always suggest to have these converted as soon as possible to prevent further deterioration.
HDCAM BROADCAST AND CORPORATE VIDEO TAPES
We offer many different formats but the most common are above and priced accordingly. 10bit uncompressed is considered to be National Archive quality and suitable as an original master mezzanine format from which further copies can be made in any format. FFV1 is considered suitable for archiving as a lossless compression format. Apple Pro-Res is a lossy format available in several quality levels and ideal for video editing due to its file sizes. MPEG4 is also lossy but highly efficient and ideal as a digital copy for viewing purposes.
