Preserving Broadcast Masters

Now Transferring Betacam

Before the digital revolution, Sony Betacam™ was THE broadcast standard of video. Capable of very high resolution SD pictures, it was used worldwide.

We received several requests to transfer and preserve Betacam tapes, so we acquired a deck to play them. Using component video, we can digitize them to high quality DV and MP4 files ready for editing or distribution.

NOTE: This is not BetaMAX, the consumer format that lost to VHS. This is the high quality professional tape format.
