If you don’t own the right equipment, digitizing Mini DV tapes and old photos to digital, dvd and USB can be tedious and difficult. Converting Mini DV or old photos is simple and painless. You can avoid the loss of quality and time by transferring your MiniDV tapes digitally.
Cleaning the tapes

Mini DV tapes should be cleaned thoroughly using a 2-pass, wet/dry cleaning method. Mini DV tapes can be restored using “Cleaning tapes”, a popular consumer-grade method. However, these tapes are often unreliable and can even cause more damage. Every tape is manually cleaned and assessed using bespoke cleaning methods and machinery.

Mini DV footage can only be converted to digital or DVD by using regularly serviced VCRs that are broadcast-quality. Minidv to digital can be difficult to convert with standard digital capture devices, such as Firewire sockets. Customers frequently recall this issue. It’s often the case that using the latest software on modern laptops and Mini DV technology is not the best choice. The conversions are slow and of poor quality.

We eliminate synchronization issues by only using broadcast-standard DV VCR’s with adjustable align. We only use players of exceptional specifications that can handle any codec. They also have the ability to adjust alignment as needed and offer unmatched mitigation of distortion and coercion.
Editing and Post Processing

Once digitalized, you can edit the digital file to bring your Mini DV tape up-to-date. If necessary, colour correction is made and contrast and saturation are adjusted accordingly.

Mini DV audio levels tend to be lower than those of modern consumer-grade recorders. To increase the quality of audio, we use enhancement to make it clearer.

Once you have completed these steps, your Mini DV video tape can be converted to digital and dvd, giving your footage a fresh lease of life. It is now time for you to experience your newly restored footage.
