DVCAM Transfer Services | Convert DVCAM Tapes to Digital

HDV and DVCAM are high-definition video recording formats. These formats use the smaller MiniDV tapes and medium sized DVCAM tapes. 

HDV is able to produce a high definition image by compressing the amount of data imprinted onto the tape. Videographers appreciated this format because of its wide acceptance (being supported by JVC, Sony, Canon, and Sharp), low cost, small size, and high image quality. 

DVCAM is a professional version of DV created by Sony. The tape is transported 50% faster. This provides better quality, but less compatibility with consumer-based products. You can expect to record up to 45 minutes of DVCAM footage on a 60 minute MiniDV tape.

We transfer DVCAM to digital at the native resolution of the original recording, 720 x 480 for NTSC format or 720 x 576 for PAL format. Transferring broadcast videos to digital ensures that your archival footage is safely backed up and protected from further deterioration or loss of content. Digital files can be viewed, shared or copied with ease, and can be edited as you please.
