Mini-DV Converted to DVD and Computer Hard Drive

Magnetic Tapes were introduced to the movie making media known as Digital Video, or DV’s. This magnetic tape was incased in a plastic cassette ranging in four sizes, however, the actual vinyl tape remained the same size in each at ¼ inch (or 6.35mm) wide.

The smaller size cassette known as S-size or MiniDV cassettes were primarily used by the amateur user, until it became conveniently used by the professional production industry as well. DV, DVCAM and HDV utilized this S-size MiniDV tape.

M-size or Medium tapes (also known as DVCPRO), were also widely used in the professional Panasonic recorders. By the use of an adaptor, this DVCPRO cassette was capable of recording on DV or DVCAM.

Large, L-size tapes known as DVCAM were used by most DV Tape Recorders and shoulder mount camcorders. Sony eventually produced a deck that was capable of playing the larger DVCAM cassette.

Not nearly as common as the smaller version, the Extra-Large tape “XL-size” was designed for Panasonic models often referred to DVCPRO XL. Only two models of Panasonic equipment was able to use these larger tapes.

Eventually, old movies, photos and records can become damaged. Old equipment can destroy brittle images. The sharp teeth from your old projector can tear the film or cause the film to jamb. The hot, high powered bulbs can and will burn the film. (It is recommended that you avoid using this old equipment if it has not been maintained properly.)

Feldman's Digital Transfer Services uses high speed film scanners to digitize your images. We never project your old movies on a rear screen projector and then attempt to transfer to a video – this would only leave hot spots on the frames, causing vignetting and flickering of the film. All of your precious images are created by using Real-Time transfer.

Unlike most Warehouse Transferring Outlets, we handle all your precious memories as if they were our own. All transfers are performed in house and with modern, high quality equipment. Each customer is given the time and attention with a personal appointment to detail your specific request and needs.

Would you like to edit your digital transfer?

If you want to edit your digital transfer we will digitize your home movie to a "movie format" on a computer hard drive (see digitize their old video tapes to a “movie format” on a computer hard drive). Editing allows you to add titles, delete unwanted footage, etc. to your home movies. When your editing is completed we can convert the hard drive to the "DVD format" to be enjoyed on your TV or PC.

Feldman's Digital Transfer Services converts and transfers VHS, VHS-C, Beta or the newer 8mm or Digital 8 video tapes, and the movie formats shown below to DVD.
