Like film, analogue video lasts about 10-15 years, then it starts to deteriorate. Most commonly, it will suffer from sticky shed syndrome and/or mould.
But by converting your video to a digital format, you can ensure its longevity and preserve its value indefinitely.
At DAMsmart, we use a range of cutting-edge digitisation technologies to migrate video content from virtually any videotape source to a wide range of
digital file formats.
All video media - We can digitise video from virtually any videotape carrier, including Betacam, DVC PRO, U-Matic, VHS, D-2, 1 and 2 inch, and many
more. We maintain a global network of key VTR suppliers, so we have access the most rare of format players.
- Any digitial output - Depending on your needs, we can convert your videotape to a wide range of file formats. For example, we could use JPEG2000 for
preservation purposes, MPEG format for production and/or an h.264 format for access.
- Any sized archive - Because we run multiple streams of semi-automated and automated tape handling, our digitisation process is capable of operating 24
hours a day 7 days a week, so we can handle any sized job on virtually any timeline.
- Conservation specialists - We use a number of traditional preservation techniques to maximise the quality of the encoding process. These include tape
baking and tape cleaning. We also have a number of SMART techniques that will optimise even the most damaged of carriers.
- Optional Hosted Digital Asset Management (DAM) - We can host your digitised content on our enterprise-grade, secure servers, so you can easily access
and manage it, without having to worry about hardware, climate control and disaster recovery. You simply log in to the hosted service from your web
browser, and search, preview, retrieve, log, shortlist content and edit. Learn more…
