A-Analog video resolution for VHS and VHS-C - 8mm is 320x240, shortly called 320 lines. For S-VHS and Hi8 is 400 lines. Mini DV – DVCAM and Digital8 is 500 line resolution. All above tape format resolutions are still far behind today’s computer screen and home TV resolution which is a minimum 1920x1080 resolution shortly called 1080 lines.
A Yes..we will capture your videos as 1920x1080 full HD resolution same as BLU-RAY quality. This way you will be able to watch high-quality HD video on your computer monitor or TV *
But not every video footage is suitable for 1920X1080HD Up-conversion. After we analyze your tape if necessary we will Up-Convert to 1280X720HD which is a great resolution for HD video
A-If your computer monitor or TV is standard definition, 720x480 line resolution, you don't need
HD Up-Conversion. Still, It is a great image quality. We capture your videos in 720x480 resolution same as DVD quality. Therefore we offer two different options.
A-There are three major differences between Standard Definition and High Definition. 1-Better Color Space 2-Better Color Sampling 3-Higher 10-bit color depth ... Upon request, we can also do standard definition digital conversion of your videos on a USB flash drive but you will not have HD advantages
A- That's correct. Video digitizing does not mean high-definition Up-Conversion. Videotape digitizing is a very well-known selling point in the market. It is important to make sure of what resolution and bit rate you are being offered. If you choose us, we will Digitize Your Videos in HD Resolution.
A-We believe this business is beyond using a VCR, a computer and a capture card. We use a high-quality HD UP-CONVERTER with noise reduction and a built-in aspect ratio converter, which converts a 4.3 aspect ratio to a 16x9 aspect ratio known as widescreen. This way your videos will be HD ready
A-This is a very important point. Not all HD footage is a high bit rate. The reason is; If you are thinking to stream your videos, compression should be between 3 Mbps and 8 Mbps which still is 1920x1080 resolution and it is the correct bitrate for steaming. For everyday viewing, archiving, or editing, you need a less compressed video, which is up to 20-25 Mbps.(Higher number means less compression) (For example, full Rez. Blu-Ray disc is can accept up to 25Mbps signal) Once you tell us where and how you will use it, we can give your videos back with the correct bit rate. Thanks to our High-End processor that will create Broadcast quality Bit rate and Frame Rate for every video application.
A-As long as your TV has a built-in MP4 playing feature, you will be able to play MP4 video files. Some TVs USB Ports are designed to play only still pictures. Otherwise, you can connect your laptop to TV via an HDMI cable..
A-No. USB flash drives are not designed for a long time storage. Video or data should be transferred to the internal hard drive of the computer, once files are in your hard drive you can create a new USB drive any time you want in case the original USB goes bad.
A- Yes. We will convert your videos from interlace to progressive in order to prevent motion artifact
A-Depends on how the video is compressed. With a reasonable compression, 32GB USB drive will hold up-to 8 to 10 VHS or similar 2 hours of videotape.
